Presented by: Barbara Dunsford, Director of Development, Lowell House, Inc.

Seminar at a Glance:

When was the last time you “tuned–up” your fundraising program and really looked at what you are doing and why? Instead of doing the same things in the same way and getting the same results, join us for a fundraising tune-up! Like a car, a fundraising program needs to go into the “shop” every so often for a good overhaul to look at all the basics for a healthy map. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and take a look at your program – your mission, case for support, program components, engagement of your spheres of influence, quarterly measurements, and social media marketing. Learn how year-round engagement of a donor-centered development plan can raise more dollars, retain donors and connect to other constituents.
