The War for Fundraising Talent
The War for Fundraising Talent is an honest yet hopeful critique of professional fundraising, intended especially for small shops that find it difficult to consistently achieve their fundraising goals. These organizations are notorious for rapid turnover and high donor attrition which are merely side effects of a much larger problem. This inter-sector conflict will not be won by those organizations who continue to mistakenly consider their scarcest resource to be donors with dollars. After years, if not decades, of obsessively accumulating new donors, most organizations have more than enough donors to keep them busy for quite some time. Those willing to part ways with this time-worn paradigm will discover how to retain more of the talent they already have and empower their new recruits with an environment where fundraising professionals can achieve mastery and find meaning in their work.

Jason Lewis, CFRE & AFP Master Trainer, provides the sector with an oft-needed contrarian voice, willing to question deeply engrained beliefs and assumptions of how effective fundraising really works. Whether writing or speaking, Jason challenges the prevailing wisdom about effective fundraising practices, hiring decisions, and donor behavior.

What’s Holding You Back? Getting beyond your pain points in fundraising
Let’s face it, fundraising isn’t effortless or without challenges.

It if were a matter of just applying the right technique—the silver bullet—they wouldn’t call it “development”. A better name would be “magic”.

That’s not to say you can’t reduce—even eliminate—many of the challenges and roadblocks you encounter.

In this hard-hitting session, Larry C Johnson, founder of The Eight Principles will identify what ails your fundraising efforts and show you how to:

• realign your programmatic focus for smoother sailing
• eliminate a faulty paradigm and replace it with a mental framework that succeeds—today and tomorrow
• overcome a dysfunctional view of money—perhaps the biggest killer of all

Leave the session with renewed confidence and a path forward. Get a taste of the transformational power of The Eight Principles.

• See their way to giving personally significant gifts
• Understand the power of their gifts
• Understand the importance of unrestricted gifts
• Use their special event gifts more strategically
