“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

Engaging colleagues and board members in the fundraising process is a notorious challenge for professional fundraisers. Most organizations place the entirety of the fundraising process on the development team (or individual), which leads to limited success and burnout for the fundraising professional. Successful organizations need to focus on building a culture of philanthropy where everyone, from the receptionist to the board president, understand the role they can play to increase giving and philanthropy. More importantly, individuals need to know there are many ways to effectively contribute to fundraising beyond asking friends and families to write a check!

This presentation will focus on best practices and lessons learned about building a culture of philanthropy at small to mid-sized nonprofit organizations. Participants will also walk away with tangible tools and resources for implementing their own culture of philanthropy and become better recognized as content experts at their organization.
