Event Description

Title
Building Constituency: Turning Engagement Into Action

Presenters
Dania Toscano Miwa, President – Toscano Advisors
James V. Toscano, Principal – Toscano Advisors

An essential element of the mission-driven work that nonprofits do each day is the formation, retention and growth of constituency. In order to achieve mission impact, nonprofit leaders turn positive engagement of our constituents into action in many ways, including volunteering, charitable giving, committee and board membership and legacy giving. In this session we will discuss the fundamental principles of constituency development and explore ways to turn engagement into action!

Learning Objectives:

  • Shared responsibility for Constituency Building
  • Integration and Alignment of Constitiuency Building with Mission and Vision
  • Focusing Fundraising as Engagement
  • Creating Strong Donor Relationships

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Resource Development, Purpose and Strategy

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Resource Development, Purpose and Strategy. For additional resources in these categories, visit: Resource Development, Purpose and Strategy.
