Live Panel: Strategic Fundraising: Creating Value in a Competitive World In a world of constrained resources and intense competition, developing strategically focused, cooperative relationships within your network can be the one thing that gives you the edge in fundraising. But are your relationships leveraged to maximum value? Learn how to create and manage a variety of strategic alliances, within your network, through buyer-supplier partnerships, through your board and staff, and throughout your entire network. 

Live Panel: The Power of Collaboration Nonprofits may be mission-driven, but their resources sometimes limit how far the mission can go. Many look for opportunities to collaborate, stretching their resources further to expand their reach. In the nonprofit space, collaboration can take a variety of forms. Hear how peer-to-peer partnerships, cross-community partnerships, partnerships with governmental organizations or businesses can help offer resources that nonprofits might not be able to acquire otherwise. 

On Demand and Virtual Panel: Turning Contacts into Donors You've got a great list of contacts, the people that subscribe to your email list, your followers on social media, or connections your organization made at networking events. These people are already familiar with your organization and are, therefore, already more likely to become a donor. How can you take them from observer to benefactor? We have a few tips to help you help them make the transition. 

On Demand and Virtual Panel: Turning It Off? Walking Away from the Work to Find Balance and Emotional Well-Being Those in the not-for-profit profession are so passionate about making an impact and supporting the mission of their organizations that often it is hard to give themselves permission to take down time. Consistently and actively engaging in self-care has been shown to improve performance by reducing burnout. This session will provide tips for practicing emotional and physical self-care for you and your team and leave you with resources and the permission you may be looking for to place “me time” on the calendar.
