Even before the pandemic sparked the so-called Great Resignation, turnover in fundraising was a major challenge for many nonprofits. In 2019 more than half of fundraisers surveyed by the Chronicle said they planned to resign within two years. Earlier studies found that about 75 percent of development professionals were thinking of quitting within a year.
With big-gift officers bringing in as much as 90 percent of fundraising revenue at some organizations, high turnover can be an existential threat.
How do some organizations hire and retain top fundraising talent, and what can you learn from them?
Join us to learn from an advancement leader with nearly 20 years of talent management experience and the head of an executive search firm with deep expertise in development.
You’ll learn how to:
- Foster an inclusive culture to boost staff diversity and retention
- Hire and support the growth of fundraisers — even without a large budget
- Promote employee well-being and prevent burnout
Plus, you’ll learn how to calculate the value of fundraisers, so you can identify your best development professionals and design smart strategies to keep them.
At the Chronicle we strive to host accessible and inclusive events. This session includes live captioning and ASL interpretation. To request other accommodations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-466-1032.
