Presented in collaboration with the Association of Nonprofit Specialists

How can small or medium-sized nonprofits address these issues, given limited budgets for recruiters or consultants?

This workshop will explore how to stabilize fundraising departments and achieve better outcomes through the use of a collaborative planning process, careful team building, and recruiting. Through real-world examples, templates, and hands-on activities that get workshop participants out of their seats and engaged, we will share best practices, strategies, and templates – for building a strong team.
