With the spread of COVID-19, 2020 has quickly become a time of uncertainty in America. As fundraisers and nonprofit leaders, we face the difficult challenge of fundraising during this time of crisis and uncertainty, and that can present a lot of questions.
How do I conduct major gifts fundraising when I can't visit my donors? Will foundations give if the stock market drops? How do I stay in touch with my donors? How do I strike a message of hope over fear? What should I do with all of these events I had planned for the year? What should I do about the gift officer I was going to hire?
Join American Philanthropic's new, weekly webinar to learn more about fundraising during this time of COVID-19 spread and engage in discussions to help answer these questions and eliminate some of the uncertainty of fundraising during this time.
This will be a weekly, one-hour webinar with American Philanthropic leadership answering your questions about fundraising during times of crisis. Join us every Thursday, anytime from 2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT to hear from your colleagues and American Philanthropic leadership about how to keep your development program strong through uncertainty. To assist in the webinar conversation, Philanthropy Daily will publish an article on each topic earlier in the week.
