“The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.”

Benjamin Franklin

Successful Relationships in the Arts, High Education & Tips for Smaller Organizations

Join us for an opportunity to learn how successful collaboration happens between frontline fundraisers & prospect research staff. Staff from Villanova University & the Philadelphia Museum of Art will discuss how project researchers and frontline fundraisers work together to maximize their fundraising efforts. In addition, there will be discussion regarding the use of prospect research in organizations where frontline fundraisers are also prospect researchers.

Key takeaways from this session:

1. Importance of healthy collaboration between frontline fundraisers and prospect research staff in both the higher education and non-profit arts organizations.

2. Increased importance of these two positions in the post-COVID fundraising landscape.

3. Current trends in prospect research and frontline fundraiser collaboration.

4. Tips for the individuals who are both frontline fundraisers and prospect researchers in smaller organizations.
