Development, raising money, donor stewardship, establishing partners: what are the bricks and mortar of a development or fundraising plan? Would you like to have a conversation about how it happens, how it advances and how to strategize with other departments in your nonprofit? Join our guest speaker, Trena Pitchford, as she leads a “working workshop” where she will use EAL/LA as her lens to build a basic fundraising plan. This participatory workshop is a great fit for those who want to get more involved in strategic thinking for EAL/LA, those who want to learn more about fundraising, and emerging development professionals.
