Fundraising – The Biggest Little Things (Bayou Region)- November 16, 2017

August 30, 2017

The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Organizational Effectiveness initiative and the Bayou Community Foundation are excited to offer a new fundraising workshop for the Bayou region: Fundraising- the Biggest Little Things. In fundraising, little things make a big difference. During this interactive session, participants will learn to implement simple, “no-ask” fundraising strategies—advice visits, site tours, and thank you calls—and apply an “Attitude of Gratitude” to build loyal donors, volunteers, and staff. Together, these “little things” will positively impact their organization’s bottom lines and advance their missions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to engage board and staff to implement no-ask fundraising strategies
  • Understand how to apply a strong “attitude of gratitude” throughout the entire organization
  • Understand how both of these strategies will enhance the overall fundraising plan

The session will be held on Thursday, November 16 from 9:00am-12noon at The Joseph L. Waitz Emergency Operations Center located at 101 Government St., Gray, La. 70359. The workshop is free, but registration is required. Organizations located in the Bayou Region will be given priority registration. Please click here to register.

Please contact Kellie Chavez Greene at 504.598.4663 or if you need more information.
