Putting together a request for proposals (RFP) for consulting services can be a daunting task. And, the elements in an RFP can be different depending upon whether you are looking to build capacity, launch a special event, or write grants. Our panelists will share best practices, price realities, and answer your questions.
Noon – 1:15PM Lunch Program open to Members and Guests
Need a consultant? Now what?
Presenter and Moderator: Laura MacDonald, CFRE, Benefactor Group
Panelists: Erich Hunker, Assistant Headmaster of Columbus Academy, William Kingston, System Vice President and Chief Development Officer for OhioHealth Foundation, and Heidi Tracy, VP of Institutional Advancement at Otterbein University.
If not now then at some point in your career it may be time to plan for a capital campaign, reorganize the development office, find a retreat facilitator, or upgrade your donor database. You need outside help, and the stakes are high. In this session, hear tips for selecting a consulting partner, defining accountability, and managing the relationship. You’ll hear candid, insider insights from a leading consultant. A panel of senior development officers will tell of their experiences with a variety of consulting relationships.
AFP Members: Come with your CEO and Board Members, ready to ask questions and share your own experiences as well. When you are ready for a consultant, will your leadership team be on board and ready too?
