Annual Giving Techniques That Will Make You Shine!

Wednesday, November 13, 2013  
9:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Annual giving is the life blood of every nonprofit organization. It incorporates virtually every aspect of the science and art of development. But what do you do if you’ve never had an annual giving program? Or what do you do if your annual giving program has stalled or declined?

The goal of this presentation is to provide participants with techniques they can implement immediately and techniques they can incorporate into their longer range annual giving plans. In this presentation, both the art and science of annual giving will be discussed. The range of topics includes prospect identification, solicitation techniques, stewardship responsibilities and more.

Through interactive exercises and a case study, participants will learn about and practice implementing every phase of a comprehensive annual giving program. Participants will leave the session with handouts related to the science of fundraising and self-created materials related to their mission and goals.

The speaker will be Janet C. Emery, CFRE. Janet is president of J. Emery Consulting, Inc. She works with a wide range of clients, helping these nonprofits enhance their sustainability through wise and ethical development practices. From strategic planning to strategy implementation, board development to staff mentoring, Janet partners with her clients to find customized answers to their development questions. Janet is also executive director of Priority Two, a faith-based nonprofit organization providing skills training and other supports for people in career transition, and a trained and approved consultant for the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations’ Standards for Excellence.

The fee to attend this workshop is $30 per person, which includes a light continental breakfast. To register, please call the Foundation Center at 412-622-6277. Please note that email registrations will not be accepted.
