Engage Conference: 4 Things I Learned from My Mother About Fundraising
On May 9, FundRaising Success is hosting its first-ever face-to-face event: the Engage Conference. Engage is the only case-study-focused fundraising conference focusing on the keys to success from organizations that have successfully made the leap from just-getting-by nonprofits to powerhouse organizations. Leading up to Engage, we will be highlighting content from the participating organizations and speakers that we've published over the years.
In September of last year, Jeff Jowdy wrote "4 Things I Learned from My Mother About Fundraising" for his weekly contribution to Today in Fundraising, which just recently morphed into the Bedrocks & Beacons blog. Funny how the best guidelines for good relationships — many of which probably come from Mom's sage advice — hold true in fundraising, as well. What lessons would you add?
Jeff will be moderating two roundtables on board development at Engage.
