Education Session #5: The Once and Future Fundraising Team
Nancy K. Racette, Principal and Chief Operating Officer, Development Resources, inc.

Session/Speaker Evaluation Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RDKHN57

Session Description:
2020 has forced all nonprofit leaders to think differently about how they generate revenue as the world reacts to a pandemic and a racial crisis in the USA. There are stories and education everywhere about how to turn in person events into online events, how to raise money and do cultivation of major donors, and the list goes on. But not many people are talking about what is happening to the jobs themselves. What should staffing structures look like to get the best ROI and raise the most money. How do you meet today’s crisis while still thinking about what happens after the crisis passes? Building leadership, productive staff, and creating vision for an unknown future are some of the topics to be addressed in this session. Building a lasting team is important to organizational success whether you are a staff of one with a volunteer team or a staff of 100. Will fundraising methods be changed forever and what should the job descriptions be now? Let’s explore the answers together.

Session/Speaker Evaluation Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RDXGG7B

Session Description:
Equity centeredness is no longer a ‘nice to have’ or a spin-off of the business case for diversity and inclusion. Dismantling injustices that dehumanize racialized members of our community calls for a clearer understanding of, commitment to, and articulation of our ethical obligations as we seek to make our workplaces and organizations anti-racist and anti-oppressive. What are some mechanisms to put in place for equity to be ingrained in the DNA of our work? What are some areas of growth as we learn to more meaningfully engage in co-creating socially just and inclusive spaces? Join this interactive session and expand your understanding of equity, diversity and inclusion.
