Spring 2022 "ADAPTIVE FUNDRAISING"
Set up for success every fundraising season - no matter what!
Private Coaching + Group Sessions
March 18th, 2022
Date & Hours
12pm ET -1:30pm ET
With the philanthropic landscape shifting on an almost daily basis, nonprofit professionals need to be equipped with the creativity, versatility, and vision to achieve their fundraising goals.
At Wright Collective, we know this to be incredibly important. We’ve supported organizations just like yours during and after many crises. From working with nonprofits in New York and New Jersey when Hurricane Sandy struck to supporting West African NGOs as they rebuilt after the Ebola crisis, we know it takes out-of-the-box ideas, decisiveness, bravery, and a certain level of tech-savviness to ensure fundraising success. And, we’ve learned a ton over the last year as we’ve navigated racial injustice and Covid-19 with our colleagues.
That's why we run our cohort on 'Adaptive Fundraising’' as a community-driven program where we teach, facilitate, and guide development professionals together around a common goal: creating structures that will raise the resources necessary to achieve mission fulfillment during any time of transition, frustration, or crisis.
