Featuring Dr. Ivy Buchan, President, Helix Strategies, LLC
It’s New Year’s Eve Day (at least in the nonprofit world)! For most nonprofit organizations, June 30 is the end of the fiscal year, and July 1 begins a new year of fundraising. What better time to talk about the critical role public relations plays in fund development strategies? Lessons from fund development communications offer best practices for all PR practitioners, no matter your field.
Join us for a New Year’s Eve breakfast discussion with Dr. Ivy Buchan, a local leader in nonprofit organizational management and strategy, who will share her thoughts on best practices for fund development communications. Is direct mail still a thing? Are splashy events worth the cost? How do digital communications complement traditional donor outreach strategies?
From small charities with minimal staff to large multi-billion-dollar organizations, knowing the answers to these questions is critical to keeping the donor dollars flowing and the doors open.
Registration is now closed.
