BandonCares Spring Workshop: Fundraising for Sustainability and Impact
“Why rob banks? Because that’s where the money is.” Okay, we don’t recommend Willie Sutton’s way, but we do recommend strategic and creative thinking about how you raise funds to support the important work you do in the community and to achieve sustainability!
Together we’ll explore key questions such as: How do we find the right funding mix for our organization? How do we plan for sustainability and resilience? How do we go beyond grants and tap into other stable funding sources? In this participatory learning exchange, we will put theory into practice to support your mission success.
· Understand core elements of fund development planning and what drives fundraising success
· Explore stable funding sources, with an emphasis on building a strong individual donor base and fostering efficient giving
· Gain and contribute ideas for fundraising strategies that work
· Generate connections and identify support and resources among your peers
· Feel more energized about fundraising for your mission
When: Friday, April 13, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Where: Bandon Community Center (aka The Barn)
