While development shops are generally successful at securing the gifts critical to meeting institutional goals, there remains no better representative than an academic leader to pitch an innovative program or solicit an important gift. Too often though, demanding schedules and divergent backgrounds keep the leaders from the development and academic sides of the house from becoming true partners.

Join your colleagues to strengthen the relationship between your institution's leading academic and development stakeholders. This event will teach you how to:

* Reframe your collaboration within a structure that specifies who is responsible for each step of the fundraising process
* Team to create and use fundraising whitepapers to achieve greater prospect interest
* Combine efforts to keep all parties aware of promising prospects
* Make a compelling case to even the most demanding of donors
* Think about all these new processes (including donor psychology) during difficult economic environments
