Creating a Meaningful Annual Development Plan

September 9 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Presented by: Laura Kruisenga, President/CEO of Kennari Consulting

The starting point of any meaningful annual development plan is clear goals. We’ll talk through a variety of goals to consider, how to narrow it down, and then how to create a plan that will help you get there. Creating and updating an annual plan is also an important tool in engaging organizational staff and the board with fundraising. Attendees will leave this workshop with clear next steps on how to create and implement their own customized plan.
