December is a busy time of the year - especially in the world of development. But, it is also important to take some time to invest in your own professional growth and even a little time for fellowship. The Great Lakes Central Chapter will gather in a few weeks for just that purpose! During our time together, we will:
  • Watch and discuss the ALDE webinar “How to Identify Donors and Strengthen Relationships” featuring Andy Canada and Tim Ardillo
  • Meet new Chapter members
  • Discuss the upcoming IGNITE Conference in Texas, January 31-February 3
  • Plan our next Chapter gathering in Spring 2019
Coffee and donuts will be provided! 

Only $5 for members and nonmembers!

Register today! We're looking forward to seeing you soon.

ardillo-canadaHow to Identify Donors and Strengthen Relationships

Fundraising at your nonprofit relies on your ability to successfully shepherd donor relationships through the five-step process of identification, qualification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship. We will share best practices and real-world experiences to help you strengthen your donor relationships at all phases. You'll learn prospect identification techniques, ideas for developing a cultivation strategy, tips to prepare for a successful solicitation visit, and steps for meaningful, donor-centered stewardship.
