President, Casey Woodard Consulting, LLC
Continental Breakfast & Networking at 8:30
Presentation at 9:00
Regardless of whatever is happening around us or to us, stewardship should never change. This session will explore why stewardship is a vital, and often overlooked, component of the major gift cycle. By sharing best practices in building and managing a donor portfolio, you will learn how to get to “yes” in a major gift solicitation.
This presentation will be a combination of tried, true, and tested fundamentals of fund development combined with a bold, visionary, and strategic plan for attracting, capturing, and retaining the next generations of donors and philanthropists.
