Our next meeting

Thursday,  October 24, 2019
Topic: Money Mindset and Fundraising
Speaker: Cathy Mann, President, Cathy Mann & Associates

Session Objectives: In this session, we will explore how deep-seated beliefs and personal values about money influence leadership behaviours, fundraising strategy, and success.

Session Description: Talking about money is complicated! The deep, and often unexamined, tension between raising money and doing good is a persistent challenge for nonprofits. Misconceptions, values, and scarcity mindsets can disrupt effective fundraising and disconnect it from mission achievement.

Time:  8:15 am – 8:30 am   Networking
