Rethinking Fundraising: Why Nonprofits Are Holding Themselves Back from True Fundraising Success and How to Fix That

So often we focus our time learning fundraising tactics and fixes to help nonprofits raise more money. But, the reality is that real fundraising success only happens with the right mindset and the right culture for those tactics and strategies to work best. Fundraising success comes from a willingness to think “both/and” and courage to test, fail, and innovate. We’ve learned that fundraising has been forced to transform repeatedly these last two years. Success is no longer just defined by how much money our organizations can raise. But rather by how nimble and adaptable we can be. During this session we’ll examine where nonprofit leaders get stuck and hold themselves back from true fundraising growth. We’ll discuss how to define the culture of innovation your organization needs to embrace and how to craft a vision and strategic plan that supports intentional and scalable fundraising. You’ll learn how to connect the dots to how fundraising innovation disrupts the “way we’ve always done it” mindset. We’ll show you how to think through each step together and craft a plan that makes breakthrough inevitable. Learning Objectives: Identify how to define what your organization needs to scale and grow. Learn tips on setting your organization’s vision, asking the right questions for growth, and making a plan. Understand what fundraising innovation means and how you can apply it to your nonprofit.
