    Join CEDAM with guest presenter, Sharon Castle of Nonprofit Network for the Fundraising and Philanthropy Workshop

    Purpose:  Fundraising is a focus on meeting a dollar goal, while philanthropy is about people feeling good about giving, giving back and making a difference.  When organizations focus on philanthropy, they ultimately generate more sustainable resources and build strong long-term relationships which, in turn, help weather storms in challenging environments like today’s pandemic.

    Session Goals:  This fast-paced workshop will be limited to 15 participants and will utilize data, training, coaching and discussion to provide a comprehensive overview of a healthy development program and how to establish a culture of philanthropy within your organization.  Attend to learn how to:

    • Build a culture of philanthropy that uses all team members
    • Develop the basic elements of a well-rounded development program
    • Build relationships with donors
    • Build your prospect pool
    • Utilize and leverage your mission

We’ll learn about the connection between communities and racial health outcomes and why community organizations should start to connect the line between those two.
