March 12th – How to Create a Powerful Case for Support at Charity How To Webinar

If you want to raise money, you need a written Case for Support. It is that simple. The Case for Support is one of the first things you should do when you form your organization. Without one, you won’t be able to raise funds needed to meet your cause’s mission. It is that critical.

This webinar will help you craft a powerful and persuasive Case for Support that will help your fundraising raise, even more, contributed income.

We spend countless hours crafting donor communication pieces ranging from direct mail appeals to website copy, to major gift brochures, but rarely do we ever sit down and carefully craft our messaging that outlines to a donor why we need their donations.

A Case for Support is the foundation document for all of your fundraising efforts. It outlines how and why behind your need for philanthropic contributions, as well as what makes you so unique and your cause so urgent.

  • How to define key terms and concepts central to your Case for Support development
  • How to organize the components of your nonprofit’s Case for Support document
  • How to establish the process for your Case for Support development and oversight

How to utilize your Case for Support in your fundraising efforts
Imagine…

  • Knowing what makes your organization unique and how to package that for your donors
  • Raising more revenue because you have outlined clear and emotional calls to action
  • Maximizing your effectiveness through having consistent and compelling messaging
  • Using key messaging consistently throughout your organization so that everyone shares the same “elevator pitch”
  • Engaging your donors in your organization by using your Case for Support as a tool to build stronger donor relationships

During this 90-minute interactive workshop, you will get all of the tools and step-by-step instructions needed to create a compelling Case for Support.

March 19th – How to Start Your Nonprofit Consultancy

During this 90-minute live, interactive workshop, you will get all of the tools and step-by-step instructions needed to take the first steps towards starting your own nonprofit fundraising consulting business.

You want to start a fundraising consulting business, but you don’t know where to begin? Starting a consulting business requires a new set of skills and aptitudes different from being a fundraising professional. You must be a business owner, a marketer, and sometimes even a bookkeeper all in the same day!

Well, you are not alone. There are hundreds of fundraising professionals who are asking, “What’s next?” and “How can I get started?” People just like you. They know that they can make a significant difference to nonprofit organizations in their communities, in their region, and even beyond through sharing best-practices and their unique skills sets. But they don’t know how to take the first step or even what is expected of them, never mind how to run a business.

Why “reinvent the wheel,” when you can learn from an experienced consultant’s experiences and learnings to get operational more quickly.

During this live, 90-minute nonprofit webinar you’ll learn….

  • How to get started with your nonprofit consulting business.
  • How to determine what your consulting should focus on.
  • How to decide where to work.
  • How to decide how much to charge for your services.
  • How to market your consulting business.
  • How to make a sale and close the deal.
  • How to start your first consulting client off on the right foot.
  • How to develop and expand your team.
  • How to use social media to create value and to position yourself in the “market.”

In order to be successful in your new entrepreneurial venture, you need the right plan and skills. Creating this plan and determining and developing your skills that are most important, will get your business up and running quickly and with greater success.

You will never have to wonder again, “Why isn’t’ the money coming in? What do we do now that our biggest and most prospect has said no?” or even “Is this even for me?” This webinar will demystify the process of becoming a nonprofit fundraising consultant and get you operational quicker than if you did it all on your own.

But the good news is that lots of organizations are even more short-staffed than ever and are in need of temporary, part-time or consulting help

Imagine…

  • Determining your consulting niche and marketing to your ideal client.
  • Learn how to appropriately package and price your services so that you actually make a living.
  • Starting your first client off on the right foot without any hiccups or glitches.
  • Leveraging social media to build a “brand” that positions you as a thought leader.

As a long-time business owner, Robin understands the importance of having a business plan for your nonprofit fundraising consulting business and she will help you during this new webinar.

May 20th – How to Build Your Major Gift Portfolio: Charity How-To

Once upon a time, 80% of your revenues came from 20% of your donors. Today, that ratio is more like 90% of your revenues come from 10% of your donors. And, as Giving USA highlights, we know that in any given year, over 70% of contributed income comes from individual donors. Whether you are in a large, medium, or small fundraising shop; it doesn’t matter any longer. The question is, are you poised to maximize your revenues based on these giving patterns?

Join Robin L. Cabral, MA, CFRE, MFIA, Chief Fundraising Strategist and Coach at Development Consulting Solutions, as she takes you through the steps she used to develop her organization’s major gift portfolios which can apply to any sized fundraising shop. Robin is a certified CharityHowTo Topic Expert on a variety of fundraising topics.

Whether your nonprofit is large or small, Robin will show you how to build either your first, or your best, major gift portfolio to focus your efforts on the 10% of the donors who are giving the 90% of contributed income.

What You Will Learn from this Free Nonprofit Webinar:

  • How to find and identify major gift prospects.
  • How to rate and rank donors to focus a major gift portfolio through a series of “Tiers”.
  • How to qualify and cultivate major gift prospects through discovery visits.
