About the Workshop

You might be thinking that early September is too early to be developing your year-end fundraising plans. BUT, this is exactly the right time to outline your action plan, so your organization can be prepared for a successful year-end. Led by Victoria Dietz, executive vice president of The Curtis Group, this session will bring tangible tips into focus to:

  • Proactively prepare for a successful year-end appeal
  • Take a multi-pronged approach to annual giving
  • Use volunteers and board members to leverage success
  • Create excitement through online channels and social media, such as #GivingTuesday
  • Maximize results of this important part of your strategy
  • Be informed and well-prepared to lay the groundwork for your success, regardless of your fundraising goal
