Philanthropy and Capital Campaigns – Moving Forward

Regardless of today’s economic and social challenges, your organization still needs philanthropic support.  Were you about to launch or already in the middle of a capital campaign? Did you lose revenue as a result of the shutdown?  Did your organization take a pause from fundraising? We’ll look at how philanthropy has been impacted by recent global events and considerations for recharging your major gift and capital campaign fundraising.

This event has been pre-approved by CFRE International for 1.5 CEs.
