The City of Auburn has contracted with Convergent Nonprofit Solutions, a national fundraising consulting firm, to offer two webinars in November for nonprofits on how to successfully raise money during these uncertain times.
Convergent Principals Andy Coe and Tom Ralser will lead the webinars. The first of the series, Fundraising 101 on November 10 from 10 – 11:30 a.m., will introduce participants to basic fundraising concepts including annual and capital campaign processes, methodology, and timelines. The session will also provide tips on developing a nonprofit case for investment and the realistic costs of raising money.
The second webinar, Establishing Asking RightsTM on November 17 from 10 – 11:30 a.m., will focus on earning the right to successfully ask for money. It will include best practices on cultivating long-term investors rather than one-time donors and go into detail on ensuring that a nonprofit’s outcomes are investable. It will also help prepare nonprofits to answer questions such as: Why should I invest in your organization?
Founded in 2009, Convergent Nonprofit Solutions specializes in managing fundraising campaigns for nonprofits in all sectors including education, homeless shelters, food banks, humane societies, hospice organizations, economic development, and more. Convergent’s clients learn how to translate what they “do” into what funders will “invest” in; a powerful approach that ends the constant struggle for funding and sustainability.
