Fostering a Growth Mindset in Your Team Webinar (April 2020)
Fostering a Growth Mindset in Your Team Webinar (April 2020)
This Month's Topic: Fostering a Growth Mindset in Your Team You've worked with teams that really clicked, and teams that seemed to fizzle. What made the difference? One factor may have been the mindsets of the people involved. In her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Stanford University professor, Dr. Carol Dweck, defines a growth mindset as a belief that talents can be developed through hard work, good strategies, and input from others. Those with fixed mindsets believe their talents cannot be changed. Teams that promote and foster a growth mindset tend to be more collaborative, empowered and committed--all factors we need in an effective development program. In this session, we'll review Dr. Dweck's research and other findings building upon her work, translate how a growth mindset can help build a more effective fundraising team, and provide real-world examples of how mindset can make the difference between a successful professional and a staff person on their way out. Learning objectives: • Understand the markers of a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset • Identify strategies to encourage growth mindsets in your team • Identify ways to help fixed and growth mindset people work together Alice L.

Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You - The Pragmatists Guide to Successful Special Events Webinar (June 2020)
Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You - The Pragmatists Guide to Successful Special Events Webinar (June 2020)
This Month's Topic: Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You - The Pragmatists Guide to Successful Special Events Special events have long been synonymous with fundraising and as a result, every fundraiser has a story of cold food, missing golf balls, no-show volunteers, and the $200 pot of hotel coffee. We also know that fundraising events, on average, have one of the lower net profit factors and yet, they are often the go-to solution in a financial pinch. It is essential that every fundraiser understand the value special events can play within their organization, as well as the importance of setting appropriate financial, time management and resource expectations. In this session we will discuss this love-hate relationship, as well as review the cornerstone elements of successful events, including how to define success, knowing when to move on and setting pragmatic boundaries for the future. Learning Objectives By the end of this session, participants will be able to: Understand the core elements of successful non-profit special events: Why are we here? I. Event purpose – friend raising, fundraising, donor recognition, community awareness II. Financial dependence – impact on the overall bottom line and role in the fund development plan III.Definition of success grounded in realistic expectations and connection to purpose Resource allocation I. Time II.Money III.People Commitment to Excellence, Not Perfection I. The details that matter and the ones that don’t II.Connection back to purpose III.Leverage people resources to create authenticity Does It Stay or Does It Go? I.Creating clear expectations around an event’s longevity II.Creating a healthy special events culture III.Understanding purpose and financial dependence Amy Wolfe is the President and CEO of AgSafe, whose mission is to advance the food and farming industries' commitment to a safe, sustainable workforce and food supply by providing practical education and resources.

The Art of the Legacy Ask Webinar (July 2020)
The Art of the Legacy Ask Webinar (July 2020)
This Month's Topic: The Art of the Legacy Ask You’ve grown your legacy program, you have an impressive pipeline of donors interested and considering leaving a legacy gift to your wonderful organization and now comes the big moment: THE ASK! There is a big misconception that soliciting for a legacy gift is the same as asking for a major gift. Nothing could be further from the truth. While there are some similarities, the approach and lead up is completely different. This webinar will present the similarities and differences between a legacy and a major gift ask, what research tells us how donors make decisions and how you can harness all this information to craft a deeply personal and successful legacy ask. Learning Outcomes • Understand how asking for a legacy differs from other fundraising asks • Learn about the research on how decisions are made • Feel confident in our ability to make a solid legacy ask Ligia Peña, CFRE, MInstF, AFP Master Trainer Ligia Peña’s career began in 2002 at the YMCA of Greater Montreal as the Director of Fundraising and Communications.

Ligia is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Kent where she is researching the topic of national umbrella legacy marketing campaigns in the UK and Canada.

Robots Make Bad Fundraisers - Maintaining Heart in the Digital Age Webinar (August 2020)
Robots Make Bad Fundraisers - Maintaining Heart in the Digital Age Webinar (August 2020)
This Month's Topic: Robots Make Bad Fundraisers - Maintaining Heart in the Digital Age In some ways, we’re in a golden age of fundraising. There have never been more ways to capture attention, rally supporters, generate revenue, and measure fundraising performance than there are today. The accessibility of this technology has also never been greater, even to the smallest charities. But with all the software, tools, apps and intelligence available to us, why has fundraising performance stagnated? Has technology actually gotten in the way of building a personal connection with our supporters? In this session, we’ll explore ways to apply time-tested principles of philanthropy to the modern technology available to fundraisers — with the goal of keeping the donors we already have, inspiring new donors to give, and maintaining the sanity of our team members. Steven Shattuck is Chief Engagement Officer at Bloomerang. A prolific writer and speaker, he curates Bloomerang’s sector-leading educational content, and hosts our weekly webinar series which features the top thought-leaders in the nonprofit sector. Steven got his start in the nonprofit sector producing fundraising videos and other digital content for organizations like Butler University, Girl Scouts, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the American Heart Association. Steven volunteers his time on the Project Work Group of the Fundraising Effectiveness Project and the Study Fundraising Steering Group at the Hartsook Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University. He is also an AFP Center for Fundraising Innovation (CFI) committee member. Steven has contributed content to the National Council of Nonprofits, AFP, NTEN and Nonprofit Hub, and is a frequent conference speaker, having spoken at AFP International, NAYDO, Cause Camp, ADRP, the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference, and Planet Philanthropy to name a few. He is a co-author of Fundraising Principles and Practice: Second Edition. In 2015, he co-founded Launch Cause, a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping emerging nonprofit organizations in the Indianapolis area enhance the impact of their work.
