Chasing Capacity: Not the Best Model for Fundraising Success

Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 1:00 pm ET | 5:00 pm GMT

Prospect Development is the Engine Driving Fundraising!

A comprehensive view of prospect development includes current and future constituents, non-donors, lapsed donors, and donors who have not reached their ultimate gift to your organization. To achieve greater results, it must break through organizational silos. It includes research, analytics, database management, engagement, and all fundraising activities.

As a prospect development professional, can you, as a single practitioner or group of colleagues, control all these functions and activities? NO!

However, through your diligent work and professionalism, you may lay a substantial foundation that supports greater fundraising ROI through gift maximization and programmatic efficiency.

This webinar is all about best practices that you can adopt/adapt to prepare for ultimate giving success as collected and revised by a grizzled 40+ year veteran of nonprofit and higher education fundraising, who encourages you to bring your thoughts and questions to this discussion.

Down with RFPs: Bridging the Chasm Between Grants Managers and Technologists

Thursday, June 20, 2024 at 11:00 am ET | 3:00 pm GMT

Grants managers are expert problem-solvers adept at navigating complex compliance requirements and risk mitigation. However, technology migrations for grants management systems (GMS) can significantly slow their work and impact.

The traditional approach of writing detailed Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to vet and select technology and implementation partners creates a transactional dynamic that exacerbates power imbalances and hampers transparency. Additionally, there is often a language barrier between grants managers and technologists.

In this webinar, we’ll explore reinventing the relationship between grants managers and technology partners. Instead of getting mired in technical requirements in RFPs, we’ll discuss:

  • Articulating a clear vision for how technology supports deeper relationships, partner engagement, and scaled impact
  • Focusing on desired outcomes rather than feature checklists
  • Developing practices that foster mutual understanding between grants managers and technologists
  • Building long-term partnerships grounded in transparency and shared values

Join us for an insightful discussion on bridging the chasm between the grants management and technology worlds. Our panel of seasoned grants managers and technology leaders will share practical strategies for cultivating collaborative relationships centered on achieving your organization’s mission and generating greater impact.
