2020 proved to be overwhelming, to say the least. This is especially true for those of you who are leading your nonprofit’s fundraising initiatives. Has this time made you face the fact that your funding model was too dependent on government funds, large foundations, program revenue, or event donors? And with this, did you wish you had a stronger individual giving program going into 2020? How do you even think about what a stronger funding model looks like in the years ahead?
Whether a ‘major-gift’ from an individual is $1,000 or $50,000 to you, what are the things you should stop doing that will help you prepare for a better future of funding? Funding through diverse revenue sources is the name of the game – but if you’re not prioritizing mid- and major-level individuals, you’re leaving money on the table. So, what should be your future priorities? Join us where we’ll have a discussion about:
I’ll show you how ‘overhead’ and your budget are your best-secret-weapons when leveling-up your individual giving program
Then we’ll talk about what you SHOULD be doing right now to build a strong funding future and attract more individual donors.
What organizations were doing right in 2019 that kept their funding super-strong through the challenges of 2020.
Hope to see you there!
Sherry Quam Taylor teaches nonprofit leaders how to pivot from a heavy dependence on program, government, and event gifts and into securing large, investment-level donations from individuals so they can finally fund their missions. The leaders she works with are experts in their field, but when it comes to individual donor fundraising, they’ve simply never been trained on how to do it, so it feels uncomfortable and frustrating. She helps them learn the exact steps to move into mid- and major level gift activities that feel comfortable, involves less dread, and fully funds their mission for the long-haul. She does this nationally through her private coaching and 90-day LET’S GROW fundraising accelerator.
