The term “strategic planning” gets attached to a wide range of nonprofit planning - for programs and services, budgeting, communications, information technology, etc. But these address very different kinds of issues and should involve different participants, processes, tools, and products. This webinar will look at the various kinds of planning needed by a nonprofit, see how they can intersect with and reinforce each other, and consider an approach that is more strategic, more effective, and less stressful.

There is no one right way to ask for a donation. Some people take great care preparing well-organized and complete presentations. Others prepare with just a few talking points and then use the energy of the prospect to guide the conversation. Some people are energized by the prospect of tying down a gift. For others it is a great act of courage. Join this webinar to learn about your Asking Style and how to ask in it so you will be more comfortable, confident and successful as an asker.
