Morning Session: Nonprofit Marketing on a Tight Budget

Want more attention for your work? Ignored by the news media? This workshop is designed to help organizations improve marketing success without spending a lot of money.

  • Crafting a compelling message
  • Who’s your audience? Market segmentation
  • Preparing a marketing plan
  • Creating effective materials
  • Thinking like a journalist: How to work with the news media

Afternoon Session: Mobilize Your Board to Raise More Money

If your board isn’t raising all the money it could — indeed, if your board isn’t raising any money at all — you’re not alone. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the reasons why, and outline strategies to turn things around. You’ll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.

  • Redefining fundraising: It’s not just asking for money
  • Addressing myths and misconceptions about fundraising
  • Lots of options: Dozens of ways your board members can participate
  • Training and motivating your board — and helping them hold each other accountable

*Lunch will be served. (Included with your $50 seminar fee)

Advance registration required; seminar limited to 50 participants. Register here.
