The Fundamentals of Fundraising

May 19, 2015 at 11:00 am Pacific
Presented by William F. Meehan III, Kim Starkey Jonker, Ernie Iseminger, & Johann Koss

Nonprofits need money—to expand their reach, to increase their impact. And they never have enough of it. At many boldly ambitious nonprofit organizations, however, leaders cease to be bold when the topic of fundraising comes up. Most nonprofit leaders, in fact, are uncomfortable with asking people for money. For that reason, it pays to learn the tried-and-true principles that guide and inspire the most effective fundraisers in the nonprofit sector. In this webinar William F. Meehan III, Kim Starkey Jonker, and Ernie Iseminger will provide actionable insight on how to overcome the challenges that cause otherwise high-performing nonprofits to stumble when it comes to raising money. They will also draw on the practical experiences of fundraising professionals—including those of Iseminger, vice president of development and external relations at Claremont McKenna College. Joining them will be Johann Koss, founder and CEO of Right to Play (and recipient of the 2013 Henry R. Kravis Prize in Leadership), who will discuss his organization’s approach to fundraising. This webinar will be of interest to all nonprofit practitioners—executive directors and board members, directors of development and development staff members—who have a stake in boosting their organization’s capacity to generate resources in order to create sustainable impact.
