Revitalizing Your Development Program, 30 Steps in 30 Days

Many development officers are so relieved when the fiscal year or calendar year comes to an end, they don't even want to think about work over the summer or in January. The year-end mailings are done, the events are on hold, the grant deadlines have all been met, so let’s just take some time off.  Our donors and volunteers are away or recovering from the holidays, so what do we do to fill our time? Why not spend the next month getting ready so you can hit the ground running in the year ahead!

In this session:

  • Review board involvement in fundraising 
  • Assess the success of the past year’s development effort 
  • Assess the effectiveness and costs of fundraising materials
  • Plan to improve effectiveness and efficiency in the year ahead

Target Audience:

Anyone involved in developing the right message, those responsible for developing the needed data and those involved in raising dollars in the fundraising field.
