Be Bold! Building Philanthropic Culture and Literacy In Your Organization

February 28th, 2019 9:10 am - 10:10 am

Leadership and culture are crucial to successful fundraising. In fact, leadership is arguably your most valuable asset, and it isn’t reserved for the chosen few. Taking bold leadership means building knowledge within the entire organization, from the front line to the board that embraces the role of philanthropy in achieving mission. Rather than being constrained by fear of the future, step towards your organization’s capacity to change the future. In this session, Andrea McManus will lead a deep dive on how to advance culture using philanthropic literacy throughout an organization.

How To Adapt Your Fundraising To Connect With Donors In This Age Of Disruption

March 1st, 2019 12:10 pm - 1:10 pm

Every day, more internal and external factors are changing the donor landscape and influencing our organizations’ ability to raise funds. The impact of technology, transparency, artificial intelligence, big data, mega giving, rage or venture philanthropy, government policy and more are all growing at a rapid pace....and, to say nothing about the increasing gap between the very wealthy and the not so wealthy. In this session, Andrea McManus will share insights, offer research, and poll the audience to gather perspective and, ultimately, help you understand the myriad forces influencing philanthropy and how you can adapt your fundraising for the donors of today and tomorrow.
