Ten Ways to Kill Your Campaign
May 6 @ 7:50 am - 9:00 am
Guest Speakers: Keith Hopkins/Hopkins Fundraising Consulting
Fundraising is difficult work on the best of days. When you begin a campaign, you add additional responsibilities to an already crowded plate. Following best practices and doing what you can to ensure success makes your life easier and ultimately benefits your organization and the greater community you serve. Attend this session to learn how to avoid the common mistakes that kill campaigns (and all fundraising efforts for that matter). Learn to recognize and
navigate around common potholes that can sink well intentioned fundraising efforts.
