Event Description

Adapting Our Fundraising Strategy

Rebecca Zanatta, President with the Ostara Group

As a follow-up to Washington Nonprofits' March 9 webinar (recording here: Coronavirus: What am I supposed to do about my fundraising event?) we will share additional thoughts about how you can adjust your fundraising this spring given the challenges coronavirus presents.

We will share ideas, but we will also be looking to you to share your ideas and strategies with your colleagues. What are your experiences to date with cancellation of events, shifts to online strategies, or other substitute fundraising strategies you are already employing? What is the outlook for fundraising into the future, and how will this change how we do our development work?

All sessions will be recorded and the recording will be available to all registered participants. Participants who are unable to attend one or more of the sessions will still have access to all course materials.
