What Would You Do? A Fresh Look at Ethics in Fundraising
Too often, those of us in the fundraising profession look at ethics in ways that trap us into an old style of thinking. In many cases, we’re afraid to talk about ethics in a meaningful way or in the context of today’s environment unless it’s absolutely required. And sometimes, we might not even realize we’re crossing an ethical line. “What Would You Do? A Fresh Look at Ethics in Fundraising” will address a number of important topics related to ethics, including public perception, what donors want, ethical issues and dilemmas, and explore interesting and informative case studies. Join this fresh look at ethics, framed in a positive way so that we can continue to thrive raising money.

Talking Your Way to Fundraising Success
Fundraising is all about building relationships. You read and hear this phrase a million times in the field of philanthropy – “build relationships”, “build relationships”. But the “how to” is a lot harder to get clear direction about. In this session, we will talk about how to have compelling conversations with prospective donors, and current donors. How do you connect the mission of your organization with their philanthropic interests? What are the words you use? We’ll talk about how to have those compelling conversations and we’ll practice becoming fluent in fundraising, and how to talk your way to fundraising success.
