Pop Goes Development

presented by Paul Dunne

February 15, 2022 AFP Tampa Bay Meeting

As development professionals, we are charged with the huge task of juggling many different segments of donor activities: major donors, direct mail, marketing, events, board relationships and even planned giving. This presentation will help prioritize and give clarity to those individuals who always feel they are reacting instead of being proactive in their work to ensure the greatest return. This presentation is especially informative for smaller organizations where the development director is in charge of many different areas.
This session will assist the development professional by giving them truthful, solid instruction on how to make sure their most important asset (time) is best spent in their day-to-day schedule.
Presentation objectives:
  • Target Practice: Prioritizing and focusing efforts for the ultimate return on investment
  • The Insiders: Effective BOD fundraising with the “Power of Ten”
  • Dig In: Major donor fundraising and practical tips on how to use their influence effectively
  • Plate Spinning: How and where to target your efforts and to practice pro-active instead of reactive fundraising
  • Managing Expectations: How to work with your CEO or ED and give realistic outcomes
