Category: General We Can't Do This Alone: How & Why to Work with our Allies to Raise More Money, presented by Erin Stitzell, FAHP, CFRE

April 9, 2024


Philanthropy is a team sport. Our allies – whether they be board members, executives, volunteers, clinicians or community influencers – play a significant role in our fundraising success. Research indicates that solicitation and gift amounts exponentially increase when an ally is involved in the philanthropy process. This session will explore the positive effects of ally involvement in the identification, cultivation and stewardship of donors and will share actionable ways to better engage allies in robust partnerships to ultimately raise more money.

Learning Objectives:

• Reveal the importance of involving allies in the identification, cultivation and stewardship of donors through sharing the results of a national research study on the ally engagement and philanthropy

• Learn actionable ways to identify and recruit allies for partnership

• Uncover strategies to successfully build trusting, two-way partnerships with allies to help with the identification, cultivation and stewardship of donors

• Discover how to build an ally impact report that is similar to a donor impact report to show allies the impact of their partnership and the work they do for your organization

The session is approved for 1.25 CFRE credits.

Due to space limitations, registration is limited to first come, first served. Pre-registration required and the registration deadline is Friday, April 5th at noon.

The first 30 minutes are dedicated to networking. The session will begin promptly at 12:00pm.
