Engage Conference Spotlight: Don't Freeze, Don't Panic — Advice for Surviving Turbulent Times
On April 10, FundRaising Success is hosting its second annual 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.
While the economy is not quite as rocky as it was back in 2009, turbulent times are certainly not a thing of the past. That's what makes the advice doled out in the session "Fundraising in Turbulent Times" at the DMA Nonprofit Federation's 2009 New York Nonprofit Conference still so relevant today.
In the session, three fundraising professionals — Ellen Cobb Church, CEO of Craver, Mathews, Smith & Co.; Marjorie Spitz-Nagrotsky, then-director of development for Americans United for Separation of Church and State; and Heather Wallace, vice president of marketing for City Harvest — shared their advice for surviving turbulent times, which you can read here.
Cobb Church and Wallace will present City Harvest's case study at the second annual Engage Conference in Philadelphia next month.
