Please note new time!
Is your organization in walk-planning mode? Does your walk encourage and support "teams"? Need some ideas on boosting your last few weeks/months of team-building and team-fundraising? Or maybe you just need to hear what others are doing that works?
If your walk has a "team" aspect, please join us for this afternoon video call. Even if your walk date for 2017 has already passed, attendees will love hearing first-hand how your team function fared this year.
In this Topical Call, we'll be utilizing Zoom to allow for easier screen-sharing if needed. Remember, this is a members-only event. The call will NOT be recorded for distribution.
This is not a webinar, but a discussion between leaders. The goal is to bring thoughtful questions and possible solutions to the table in order for this to be a beneficial use of time for everyone, allowing all time to share, and to hopefully bring forward solutions to take away.

We often face issues that feel insurmountable at times, whether with our donors, in the community, with the local media, and sometimes, internally with our own staff and volunteers. It’s how we prepare for and respond to these issues that helps us ensure they don’t become a crisis. Learn how to align your organization’s values with your actions, identify and prepare for potential issues, and respond to issues before they ruin your organization’s reputation.
Speaker: Dawn Ward, former National Managing Director, Public Relations Strategy & Crisis Communications at American Cancer Society.

This series is for the novice fundraiser or those staff/board wishing to implement a true donor development plan for major and planned gifts in their organization.
Do you have a plan in place to identify, cultivate and solicit major donor gifts? The secret to obtaining major gifts (and even planned gifts) is building a lasting relationship with your donors. But...how to begin? How exactly is it done? Who is responsible for the plan and its execution?
In this three-part series, you'll learn how to develop a plan which will take you through the four parts of a successful donor development initiative:
