About this Event

Come explore factors that when understood can drive the transition of your fundraising program. Leave ready to ignite your program to make your dreams reality. In this workshop we will focus on The Reason, The Who, The How, The Plan, The Accounting, The Support, The Tools and The Force.

This workshop is an interactive journey through the following 8 driving factors.

• “Total Development” – To raise the required moneys needed to support and carry the Strategic Plan an organization needs to focus on more than just a sound development plan.

• Mission – The Mission of the organization needs to be a finely honed and widely accepted short written statement - combining our heritage with our work of today.

• Leadership – The organization is its people; we must be committed to our Mission. It requires the drive of everyone; it cannot be luke-warm or half-hearted, it must be commit or quit.

• Strategic Plan – The development of an organization will only be driven by an achievable Strategic Plan with defined goals, framed by specific strategies and actions that are supported with budgetary consideration. The Strategic Plan is in reality a continual process of examination and discovery, of dreaming and reality, of risk and hope focused on the implementation of Mission.

• Two Baskets – To clarify and simplify our understanding of those monies that we do raise we need to accept that there are only two kinds of giving: ‘annual’ and everything else.

• Instruments – The instruments for cultivation and solicitation are derived from the Strategic Plan. The case statement is continuously adapted for the donor.

• Steering Committee – All cultivation and solicitation must be directed by a small group. This committee must meet regularly within the strictest of confidence.
