Event Details

Ash Shepherd, Education Director, Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN)

Whether you’re focused on fundraising, advocacy or raising awareness for a newly launched program, campaigns are a unique opportunity to do so much more than simply “reach a target”.

This session will provide a mix of frameworks and best-practices to help you incorporate storytelling and community-building as core elements of your campaign strategies. We’ll draw on examples from a broad spectrum of organizations, and you will leave with practical and tangible takeaways that you can start incorporating right way.

Come prepared to share your awesome and connect with others as we role model community-building in this interactive session.

NEW Flash Consulting Sessions Available!

Fund development consultants Clarinda Hanson White and James Phelps will be available for complimentary 10-minute "flash" consulting sessions during the networking portion of this event. Availability is limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
