2017 – 2018 Professional Development Series

Thursday September 28, 2017 Annual General Meeting and Professional Development Session: Small Shops, Big Successes.

Over 80% of donations in Canada go to 2% of the now almost 87,000 charities in the country – what is a small shop to do? Our speaker has personally visited over 1000 small charities in every province of Canada over the past 3 years and observed their fundraising wins and losses. Come learn about what are the most important “do right now” things to get done before the giving season peaks in December, what you need to strategically “stop doing” and most importantly what a small shop can do to get transformational and long term donors. The big take away will be what super-powers most small shops don’t know they have to outmaneuver big charities. You will leave with concrete ideas to raise more money right away, in 2018 and beyond.
