I Survived Fundraising Season…
February 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join the North Carolina Conservation Trust’s Communications Director Mary Alice Holley as she shares her tips and tricks that she learned from this past “fundraising season” AKA November and December. A full-time communicator with little fundraising experience, Mary Alice was asked to lead her organization’s year-end fundraising campaign developing direct mail, email, AND social marketing strategies to raise over $100,000 in six weeks. Sound familiar? SPOILER ALERT: She survived and succeeded!
In this session, get her tips on how to organize yourself, your organization, and your communications calendar to bring in donations, grow your list, and come through the most important giving time of the year with your sanity intact.
BRING YOUR LUNCH AND QUESTIONS!
