SPOKANE: Generosity & Gratitude: A Guide to Joyful Fundraising

The prospect of raising friends and funds to fuel your mission can be a daunting one. But it doesn't have to be! This workshop breaks down fundraising into a four-phase cycle and invites participants to master the skills and steps for each phase: attract, ask, acknowledge, and act. Join fund development experts Trish McFarland and Katie Howard to learn how to build a case for support, design a fundraising plan that fits your budget and goals, build relationships through the art of listening, activate board members in their fundraising roll, express gratitude in meaningful ways, and celebrate the results made possible by your partnership with donors. Through a series of discussions, hands-on activities, and large- and small-group interactions, you'll leave this workshop with new skills and tools to raise the financial, social, and human capital that are essential to your organization's long-term success.
