Honest Fundraising: Showing Donors What’s Really Going On to Increase Trust and Funding

Wednesday, May 18, 2022
2:00 pm3:00 pm

From the provider:

Perfect fundraising is honest and has unrestricted funds, the ability to invest in staff and infrastructure, and multi-year commitments. It also requires trust in the people and communities doing the work.

Fundraising is not perfect! We’re afraid if donors see anything but perfection that it might affect their giving. Since donors are part of making social good happen, they need to understand the good, the bad, and the ugly, and that they can give in a way which is even more meaningful.

Join us on Wednesday, May 18 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT as Rickesh Lakhani discusses how to move towards more open and honest fundraising and stop curating the sometimes messy, often complex nature of social change!

In a highly interactive session, we’ll discuss:
Topics that you never thought you could discuss with donors, but should
Issues that are caused by keeping donors at arm’s length from the truth
Strategies to shift donors' understanding of your work and their role in it
Specific phrases and framing to move donors towards trust and mission-based funding

The Nonprofit Partnership's offices at The Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Transformational Philanthropy are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM.
