Fundraising for Sustainability

October 22 @ 1:00 PM4:00 PM EDT

Fundraising for Sustainability
We’re online! This workshop will be presented online through Zoom. All registrants will receive the access link and password via email the day before the event.

In 2020, fundraising shifted swiftly from in-person events and across-the-table asks to socially-distanced, digital engagements. We’ll be living in this new context for the foreseeable future, so how can we catch up, adapt, and continue to build meaningful relationships with donors?

In this session, we’ll examine how fund development shifts in times of crisis or economic downturn — and what we can learn from previous eras to build sustainable models for fund development.

This workshop will cover:

  • How do we adjust to changing communication channels?
  • How does fundraising look different in light of COVID’s impact?
  • Tips for fundraising in a financial downturn

Guest Panelists:

  • Michelle Bottrall, Meals on Wheels
  • Bethany Maki, Progressive Multiplier Fund
  • Julieta Mendez, Candid

Facilitators: Tamela Spicer and Mandy Sharp Eizinger

Price: $60
Free for GVSU students/staff/faculty

Deadline to Register: Wednesday, October 14

This workshop will be a live, interactive experience. It will not be recorded or available to registrants after the end of the live session.
