About this AFP Advancement Northwest Leading Edge Series session

Most nonprofits tackle a major fundraising campaign at some point along the way and the question inevitably comes up, “will the campaign cannibalize our annual fund?” Whether the campaign will fund a building, expand an endowment, or launch new programs, there is a simmering concern that the annual fund will suffer. With new research in hand, this session will answer the question, “what is the true impact of a campaign on the annual fund?” More importantly, Kate Roosevelt and Dan Pronovost will share their insights alongside case studies for how nonprofits can coordinate annual and campaign giving strategies to ensure that annual giving flourishes during a campaign. Whether you are in a campaign, planning for a campaign, or simply searching for strategies to grow your annual giving, this session will give you a reality-based perspective on:

  • Budgeting for development revenue and expense during and after a campaign
  • Planning for changes in donor behavior
  • Staff retention
  • Board engagement in fundraising

Intended Audience

Executive leaders, volunteer leaders, and fundraisers

Speakers

Kate Roosevelt, CFRE, Executive Vice President, Collins Group, a division of Campbell & Company

About this session at the 2017 State Councils Annual Conference

The world of corporate philanthropy has moved away from “feel good” giving to giving that can model corporate strategies in community and workforce development. Independent colleges are sometimes at a competitive disadvantage with corporate funders because the level of impact that smaller institutions can demonstrate is often lower than that of large public universities, simply because their student populations are smaller. State Councils, however, are in a unique position to fill this gap. By providing scale for member institutions, State Councils can develop compelling programs that may readily fit corporate strategies for funding and workforce development. State Councils also can demonstrate the true benefit of collaboration among member institutions by seeking larger corporate gifts collectively than each college could obtain on its own. This panel discussion led by James Plourde, Vice President of Collins Group, provides an opportunity to hear experienced gift officers discuss their strategic philanthropic interests.

Intended Audience

Development/fundraising professionals at educational institutions

Speakers

James Plourde, CFRE, Vice President, Collins Group, a division of Campbell & Company
Mark Dederer, Executive Director, Biller Family Foundation
Cat Martin, Vice President, Relationship Manager Pacific Northwest & Utah, Global Philanthropy, JP Morgan Chase & Co.
