Fundraising Training and Keynotes
ONLINE: Ask Without Fear for Auction Donations Webinar, November 3
I’ll be sharing how to apply major gift fundraising strategies to your auctions and special events! Sign up at:
SEATTLE: Nonprofit Storytelling Conference, November 5-7
I’m thrilled to be part of this brand new conference concept. This isn’t your regular shuffling from seminar to seminar conference. Instead, a dozen of the country’s top fundraising experts will be showing you sequentially how to tell your nonprofit’s story. We’re intending for every organization to leave with a detailed 12-month plan for fundraising in 2015. See why Tom Ahern is calling the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference the “Making Money Money Conference!” and check out the video “attending” option: http://thenonprofitstorytellingconference.com/video-option/
CAPE COD: Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod, November 12
At this special Philanthropy Day, I’ll be giving a keynote about how to best achieve fundraising success in 2015. The keynote is based both on my own work and on my research and interviews with fundraisers from the Cape and the Islands. And I’m just the start of the conference. It normally sells out so see if you can still register: http://capecodphilanthropy.org/philanthropy-day/
THE NETHERLANDS: EA-EAZ training, November 18
This training for the Dutch Evangelical Alliance will combine major gift fundraising with inspirational looks at actual fundraising solicitations in Scripture.

STOCKHOLM: Creating Donor Evangelists Masterclass, November 21
