    Today's fundraising professionals find themselves in the messy predicament of being in one of the sector's most critical yet least understood roles. This predicament can be especially difficult for those in small shops with limited staff and resources. Author, fundraiser, and trainer, Jason Lewis will demonstrate how small shops can combine insights from social psychology and the science of expertise to clean up their myriad of fundraising challenges. This process begins with a better understanding of ourselves and our organizational culture followed by greater expectations of ourselves and our donors.

    Participants will learn:

    • How to discern between three types of gifts and their impact on performance
    • How fundraisers can ensure they are recognized and admired for meaningful work
    • Why employers should contemplate the differences between two types of passion
    • How to rely on a deliberate practice regime as key performance indicators

    SPEAKER:  Jason Lewis, Lewis Fundraising

What our members are saying after attending our programs:

“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.”
