Course description:
You’re working to create a better world. And traditional fundraising works for simpler issues to longstanding problems. But for non-profits that work on the front lines of some of our biggest societal issues, it’s not so simple.

Herein lies the work of Social Change Philanthropy.

Join Cathy Mann, MA, CFRE, as she talks about the work of social change philanthropy and how to raise funds in complex environments. With more than 30 years working in the charitable sector, Cathy has served in multiple organizations both as a fundraising professional, consultant and teacher…and she has seen it all.

In the session, you will learn:

  • What is Social Change Philanthropy and how it differs from traditional philanthropy
  • How this change will help solve our most pressing societal issues
  • How to engage donors to see the value in investing in complex mandates

This session is all about shifting the status quo. And if you’re ready, join Cathy.
