    Strategic planning in fundraising is important, but sometimes lofty ideas and goals can seem (and even be) unrealistic to implement.

    Rather than another 30,000-yard view of the big picture, Betsy will provide pragmatic, do-able suggestions and no-/low-cost tools to streamline your process and get your fundraising moving. 

    Learn simple ways to improve or get started with each of the four essential elements of fundraising:
    1) your story
    2) prospective donors
    3) organization of fundraising tasks so they get done
    4) systems that help fundraising thrive

    Doors open at 11:30 for networking; program begins at 12:00. 

    To keep our community as safe as possible, we require event attendees to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 upon entry. We are also limiting the number of attendees.

Our members say:

“I was able to get approval on increasing the frequency of an event from every two years to annually, and helped increase online giving by 12% through crowdfunding for a climate change research organization.”

“A fundraising audit prompted the creation of our first annual report…which led to three times the $$$ on our annual appeal. (And we won a design award for the report as well!)”

“I’m engaging my donors as I like to be engaged: thoughtfully, respectfully, a dash of humor, and building the relationship – and the gifts are coming!”

“I am watching our board and staff move from skepticism about being able to raise money to being engaged and empowered.”

The Association of Development Officers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
