Is your nonprofit just starting out? How do you find the people who want to connect with you and grow those relationships and get money?
Where do you find people of means? Where do you look for hidden gold?
Who can you turn to, who has a natural affinity for your cause? You’re going to have some A-HA moments in this workshop! We’ll go over the many ways to find and cultivate donors, on a broad scale, with average return on each method, before drilling down with concrete exercises to help you succeed in each area.

You know your nonprofit could be more efficient. So could everyone’s.
So do you want to seriously sit down and figure out how? How can you get out from under those piles at your desk? How can you help EVERYONE get more efficient and effective? This presentation will be an introduction to lean management techniques, gives concrete examples on how to do efficient development in the most inefficient sector of our economy, the nonprofit world, and makes a play for major donor cultivation strategies above all other strategies. Includes concrete examples of lean development in appeal letter batches, moves management, and more. You’ll have time to think about how to apply this in your office, and ask questions and get answers too. Register for Lean Development
Negotiating Conflict at your Nonprofit
When: Thursday, April 07, 2011 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
In the nonprofit world, sometimes you have to be the truthteller. And sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth. So how do you set boundaries? How can you manage expectations? How can you figure out which types you’re dealing with? How do you take power? We’ll go over rank in the workplace including boss and board profiles to help you skip through the conversational minefield with grace and alacrity. Oh, there will be amusing anecdotes. You may find yourself nodding your head a lot. And then there will be ways, concrete ways, to deal with each kind of person who comes at you verbally. This is self-defense at work at its best!
