Learn how to align your core values as a fundraiser with the work that you do
Rowena Veylan, Founder and Lead Instructor of New School of Fundraising
We have all heard that there is an art and science to fundraising. All that you have to do is google “how to make an ask or grow your monthly donor program” to get at the science, but what do we do about the other half—the art?
All too often, fundraisers are hired based on “what” they have done, and we spend little time talking about the “how.” In fact, most fundraisers spend very little time on the art, and that can have a negative impact on their success and happiness in their roles.
This workshop will explore the many facets of professional fundraising and how values alignment plays a key role in employee and talent retention. Whether you are hiring a fundraiser, are a fundraiser, or exploring a move to professional fundraising, this session is for you and promises to be a worthwhile conversation.
