AFP Okanagan Worshop with Scott Decksheimer: Be Bold! Cultivate Philanthropic Literacy to ensure you and your organization are ready to help your cause

Leadership is crucial to successful fundraising. In fact, leadership is arguably your most valuable intangible asset, and it isn’t reserved for the chosen few at the top. Taking bold leadership means building knowledge within the entire organization, from the front line to the Board. This will help you be less constrained by fear of the unknown and will build your organization’s capacity to change the future. Now, more than ever, strong planning, knowledge of successful practice and an understanding of how to grow is critical. In addition, the effect of technology, transparency, artificial intelligence, big data, mega giving, rage or venture philanthropy, government policy and more are all growing…. and, what about those millennials? 

In this workshop, fundraising expert and current AFP Canada Chair Scott Decksheimer will lead a deep dive on how to advance culture and your organizations fundraising or capital campaign using philanthropic literacy throughout an organization and step towards a new future of fundraising.
