In this webinar, we will investigate how to bolster your fundraising plan during times of macroeconomic transitions and micro-staff transitions. We’ll analyze factors such as board composition, risk tolerance, existing relationships with funders, and staff tenure. Together we’ll establish guiding principles for how to position your organization to maximize fundraising during uncertainty. In this session, we will review 3 transition case studies and look at how fundraising and donors were impacted. Join us for an engaging, thought-provoking, hands-on session.
