Nonprofit Program Workshop Series

Wednesday, May 13, 10:00 am to noon

HAS THE ANNUAL APPEAL OUTLIVED ITS USEFULNESS? Presenter: Rebecca M. Bryan, CFRE, R. Bryan Associates, LLC For decades the Annual Appeal has been the bread and butter for most nonprofits. Letters sent, donations returned, budget goals met, programs implemented. With all of the changes in the world of fundraising – technology, donor behavior, economic realities etc. – what is the role of the Annual Appeal today? Has it outlived its usefulness? This workshop will focus on how to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of your Annual Appeal.

Wednesday, May 27, 10:00 am to noon

FINDERS, KEEPERS: HOW TO FIND AND KEEP NEW DONORS Presenter: Donna Haghighat, Hartford Public Library Nonprofits of all sizes work hard to find new donors and find it even harder to keep those new donors.  For small to medium-sized nonprofits, losing donors and not attracting new ones is hampering growth or worse, creating a sustainability crisis.  Please indicate the type of nonprofit you represent and any particular challenges you would like addressed when you register.


Thursday, June 18, 9:00 am to noon
