Non-Profit Leadership and Management
Presented by Sandy Tush, Soderquist Leadership
Leadership is all about motivating and inspiring people – interacting with them in a way that makes them want to give their best. Management involves taking care of the mechanics of having people work for you – things like scheduling and compensating. Both are important in order for an organization to thrive and produce the results it is capable of producing. This is true regardless of the organization.
This session brings the concepts of leading and managing specifically to the world of non-profits. We’ll explore what is the same and what is different when comparing these organizations with those of the corporate world. And, most importantly, we’ll look for keys to success that are specific to the non-profit agencies in which you operate.
Major Gifts - Casting the Net
Presented by Blake Woolsey, Mitchell Communications
“I would never do that job!” is typically what most fundraisers hear from others who don’t understand what we do. But, for those of us who work in the world of fund development, we know how satisfying – and life changing -- it can be for those who are making a major gift. This kind of gift rarely happens without a lot of time, effort and attention.
There is an extensive process to raising money. What is that process? What are tips and tricks that you can add to your toolkit? In this session, we will discuss the following:
- the fundraising process and the role of leadership;
- accessing where you are on the spectrum of major gift fundraising and where you want to be in the future; and
- what goes into making an “ask” of a major gift prospect.
