Monday, November 27, 2017 10:00 am - 11:30 am 
In-person | New York, NY

Check-in: 10:30am

As an executive director, it is your responsibility to guide your organization and provide a vision for where it will be in the immediate future and the long term. You are also responsible for determining how your organization spends its money and generates financial support. Managing and raising funds effectively is critical to the sustainability of your organization. In tandem with a development director, board member, or other support staff, the executive director is typically tasked with creating and implementing a plan for successfully raising the funds needed. This workshop will take a big-picture look at the important role of the nonprofit executive director in fundraising, including the important role philanthropy plays in organizations and key motivations behind why people give.

Workshop participants will learn how to: 

  • Develop fundraising expertise as an executive director
  • Build and sustain important donor relationships
  • Advance their work together with boards and fundraising staff
  • Invest in building fundraising capability
