In response to member demand, BCCIC will be holding an Advanced Fundraising Workshop on November 9th from 10 am to 3pm at the Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library.
This in-person workshop will go beyond the basics to look at new and emerging fundraising approaches as well as providing tips and feedback on how to hone your existing fundraising approaches. Main themes and topics covered in the workshop will include:
- How to build your fundraising story and structure/format
- Timing your outreach
- Targeting fundraising approaches for different groups e.g. individuals, corporations, nonprofits, etc.
- Peer to Peer examples, recruiting fundraisers and ambassadors and corporate gifts.
- The relative effectiveness and time intensity of the different fundraising approaches.
- Reality check – What can smaller organizations realistically expect to accomplish?
The workshop will be co-facilitated by RaeAnne Rose from Pharos Fundraising Strategy and Lynne Boardman from Harvey McKinnon & Associates (bios are below) and will be limited to 20 participants with preference given to BCCIC members who register by October 26. Please RSVP using the link below:
