First-time fundraisers fresh out of college often need guidance on how to represent their nonprofit well and successfully relate to donors. This session is designed to help young fundraisers who want to sharpen donor-relations skills, adopt effective time-management habits, and hone communication skills.
Join us to learn how to build strong relationships within your organization and with donors and gain a better understanding of the skills and characteristics of a successful fundraiser.
You'll hear directly from a veteran fundraiser at the Salvation Army who oversees a team of fundraisers and will offer clear guidance on how to set priorities for your work, outline goals, identify action steps, and achieve the results your manager and organization expects.
You'll also gain insights from a fundraising-management leader at the University of Michigan who will explain how to tap into your organization's culture and why it matters – so you can better understand the priorities, communication styles, and goals of your fundraising colleagues and leaders.
You'll also receive two tools to help you implement what you learn: a discussion guide to help foster communication with your supervisor and better understand organizational priorities and a goal-setting instrument to help you set, monitor, and accomplish your fundraising goals.
This session is designed to position young development staff for professional growth and increased responsibilities and to help busy managers get new employees up to speed more quickly.
