Developing a Fundraising Plan - Jean Pudlo - #12069
A good fundraising plan focuses your agency on the most productive path toward sustainability. Step out of the day-to-day and evaluate prospective donor groups from a marketing perspective. Compare the effort and resources required for various funding methods including direct mail, special events, foundation and corporate grants. Put them together into a balanced, practical plan. We will use case studies and your situations to apply basic marketing concepts and outline steps to develop a comprehensive fundraising plan. . ($4 fee 1 hour networking lunch)

Fri. May 8 9:00 am to Noon
Board Development for Young and Growing Nonprofits - Jean Pudlo - #12070
We will explore together how a board must answer these questions for their organization: Why does this organization exist? How will we get our work done? What resources will we need and where do we find them? How well are we doing? Then, we will review a life cycle approach to how boards can organize to work well in the early stages of an organization – from beginnings to being fairly established. We will explore the dynamics of changing from a “hands-on” board to more a board with clearly separated board and staff roles leading to a more mature organization. We’ll share practical ideas on your questions about boards.
Jean Pudlo serves the nonprofit community as a consultant based in Greensboro. She has over 15 years experience with nonprofit organizations, and an MBA in Public and Nonprofit Management from Northwestern University. ($4 fee no lunch)
