Webinar Series for River Network Members: the Fundraising Plan

December 7, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Fundraising Essentials for Success: Session #2

The Fundraising Plan: Your Framework for Success
Did you know that having a fundraising plan is the #1 predictor of fundraising success? This session explores how to develop a focused, actionable fundraising plan with measurable benchmarks, a designated timeline, and personal accountability. We will explore how fundraising plans fit into your organization’s planning continuum. Plus, you will learn a variety of fundraising strategies, how to balance restricted and unrestricted funds, the pros and cons of a membership program, and the importance of measuring progress throughout the year.

Note: This series is a FREE benefit available to current dues-paying members of River Network. Organizational members of River Network can register an unlimited number of individuals for any or all of these webinar sessions, but please have each person register independently.

If you are NOT a current member but would like to register for this training, please join our network HERE and gain access to this and many other member benefits and discounts. If you are unsure about your member status, please contact Victoria Yu for assistance.

Details about the series:
• Is your organization too reliant on one or two sources of funding?
• Does fundraising rely too heavily on one person in your organization?
• Do you have untapped fundraising potential or unrealized donations?
• Is your Board underutilized or not yet fully engaged in fundraising?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, take advantage of Fundraising Essentials for Success, a series of fundraising webinars developed by River Network’s Leadership Development Institute. This series of five webinars covers essential best practices and strategies for focused, effective fundraising. Each is designed to help you build confidence through questions and exercises.
