I am speaking later today at the AFP South Carolina Lowcountry 2009 Summer Institute in downtown Charleston. It's always good to be able to spend some time with local nonprofits and not have to travel very far to do it.
They have put together a very solid day of sessions. Here's a look at the other presenters:
- "The Thrills, Challenges, and Joys of the Small Shop" — Jill A. Pranger, ACFRE, President, Pranger Philanthropic
- "The Care and Feeding of Donors: How to Keep your Donors Begging for More" — Jim Bush, CFRE, Executive Director, Charleston Animal Society
- "Optimizing Organizational Performance through Collaboration" — Anthony Powell, CFRE, Managing Director, Knowledge Capital Group, LLC
- "How Can I Do Development When Everyone around Me Is Doing Fundraising?" — Jill A. Pranger, ACFRE, President, Pranger Philanthropic
- "Ethics: The Importance of Preaching What You Practice" — A panel moderated by Courtenay M. Fain, Director of Development, Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina. Featuring Dwayne Green, Esq., owner of Hampton Green, LLC; Linda Ketner, President, KSI Corporation; John O. Sands, Director, Lowcoutry Program, Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelly Foundation; and George Stevens, President, Coastal Community Foundation
- "Building the Brand – In Tough Times!" — Barbara Berglund and Teresa Coles
- "Getting Your CFRE" — Timothy M. Winkler, Sr., CFRE, Principal/Managing Partner, Winkler Consulting Group
I will be doing a presentation called "The Changing Nature of Online Fundraising" and I've made some updates for today's session. Some new examples of nonprofits using social media and updated statistics about online and offline fundraising.
