Creating Breakthrough Performance in Nonprofit Philanthropy

In a rapidly changing world, traditional approaches to resource development simply will not yield the results necessary to achieve ongoing excellence in your nonprofit organization. In this workshop, you will learn innovative strategies and transformational concepts for achieving breakthrough performance.

  • Discover leadership’s crucial role in creating and sustaining a dynamic culture of philanthropy that can be a powerful part of your organizational success.

  • Get an in-depth understanding of donor motivation to drive more significant philanthropic engagement.

  • Learn how to connect donors’ passions to your organizational initiatives.

  • Understand the strengths and challenges of volunteers in connecting new donors with your organization and its mission.
