Wednesday, July 26, from 10:00am - 11:00am PST


About this Free Webinar

Whether a campaign aims to expand an endowment, fund a building, or launch new programs, there’s always a simmering concern that annual giving will suffer. How can nonprofits avoid annual fund cannibalization during a major fundraising campaign?

This webinar will share findings from our original research alongside case studies that illustrate how to coordinate annual and campaign giving strategies. By following our recommendations, nonprofits can ensure the best possible annual fund results during and after their campaigns.

Subjects we will cover:

  • Review of recent research and case studies
  • Campaign and annual fund best practices for:
    • Preparation and staffing
    • Communications and marketing
    • Major and community phases
    • Board engagement and donor stewardship

Executive leadership, board members, fundraisers (primarily directors of development and annual fund managers), nonprofits preparing for or undertaking a campaign

Event: Pitch Perfect – Crafting Your Quick Pitch

Thursday, September 7, 10:30am - 11:45am MT
The Riverside Hotel, Boise, ID


About this session at the 2017 Idaho Statewide Nonprofit Conference

Everything you want to accomplish through your organization begins with the story you tell. No matter what role you play—from volunteer and board to programs and development staff, everyone has the opportunity to draw someone in with a concise and inspiring answer to the question—so what do you do?

We will roll up our sleeves alongside you in this interactive workshop. Our main goal is to help you distill the essence of what you do and why you do it into a quick, engaging pitch. We’ll explore how your quick pitch translates into more committed supporters for your organization and how to adapt it to different audiences and settings. Our format will simulate real life—come prepared with a pitch in mind, and we will refine it and practice together in real time. You will leave with a quick pitch you are proud to share everywhere from the grocery store to the board room.
