Building a Fundraising Partnership Between Development and Academic Leadership
|Event Date/Time: Jun 27, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 28, 2011|
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 academic and development stakeholders. This event will help you:
Understand the market conditions that challenge a successful partnership
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 our recovering economic environment
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This event is designed to bring together academic leaders and development personnel to systematically rethink their interactions and relationship to form ongoing successful partnerships. As such, we strongly encourage you to send stakeholders from both groups to attend -- including your advancement managers, corporate/foundation relations professionals, development officers, faculty members, departmental chairs, deans, provosts, and president.
