Event Full: Connecting to Cause, Community & Funding

Events should be inspirational, educational, oh, and raise money too. But the very idea of an event can strike dread into hearts of even seasoned professional. Understandable, if events mean diverting staff, under-leveraging relationships, sapping volunteer goodwill and spending money for one-dimensional hours on the 5K route, golf course or ballroom. In this session we’ll explore best practices and strategies for successful event programs that create ongoing connection to cause, community and funding.

Big or small, many of our organizations’ calendars are riddled with events which have run their course and no longer hit any of their desired marks, plus they have a cost to raise a dollar that would make even Donald Trump blush. Clare has worked on a variety of non-profit events from high-society affairs in big cities, sponsorship fueled sporting events and corporate driven outings to smaller more intimate grassroots events in small towns. Through recent experiences at, Community Nurse and past experiences at Southcoast Health System, Brown University, Special Olympics, Junior Achievement and City Meals on Wheels, she has identified some great approaches and some dangerous traps to avoid. Clare’s fun, enthusiastic and interactive presentation style is sure to lead to an engaging and memorable session.

Talking Turkey: The Plain Truth About Engaging the Board & CEO in Fundraising

According to a 2013 Chronicle of Philanthropy report, "half of fund raisers in the top job would like to quit." The report further highlighted that dissatisfaction among fund raisers is blamed on CEOs.

In this discussion, we will begin by talking about how to engage your board in fund-raising, identifying challenges to engagement and opportunities to create alignment between what they believe their role is - what fund raising is - and the reality, which is somewhere in the middle. Then, we will move to the CEO partnership. Knowing what your CEO needs and expects from fund raising is where it all begins. Then, understanding your CEO's executive responsibilities and how to create a viable and reasonable fund-raising role within those responsibilities is the key to success.
