Celebration of Nonprofits: Connecting to Donors
This year, the annual Celebration of Nonprofits is going virtual in a multi-part series where we can focus on one issue per session important to the nonprofit community.
Part 1: Connecting to Donors
How is your nonprofit connecting with donors? What about your big annual gala? Glen Fladeboe, owner of Fladeboe Advancement, a Minneapolis based consulting firm will outline the key strategies non-profit organizations are using to raise money online during the Covid-19 pandemic. Fladeboe's firm has assisted over 100 non-profit organizations over the past 6 months with virtual fundraising events and he will share success stories and key takeaways that have led to continued giving.
