Virtual Meeting  -  February 17, 2021, @ 10:00 am (Please note special time)

Please grab a cup of coffee and join us online for our guest speaker, Paul A. Dunne, CFRE. FREE to members and non-members.    

Pop Goes Development Presented by Paul A. Dunne, CFRE,
Senior Vice President, Catapult Fundraising

As development professionals, we are charged with the huge task of juggling many different segments of donor activities: major donors, direct mail, marketing, events, board relationships, and even planned to give. This presentation will prioritize and give clarity to those who always feel they are reacting rather than being proactive in their work to ensure the greatest return. This presentation is especially informative for smaller organizations where the development director is in charge of many different areas.

About Paul:

Paul is a well-known and respected thought leader in our industry. His passion, drive, and expert knowledge allow him to provide counsel to organizations across various non-profit sectors. His expertise in capacity building areas with a focus on expanding revenue, strengthening fundraising infrastructure, increasing staff capacities, and board development has been invaluable to his client partners. Before joining the Catapult team, Paul was the founder of thinkpadsolutions and held executive leadership roles for Howard Payne University, the Denver Rescue Mission, and North Hawaii Community Hospital. Paul currently serves on the AFP International Foundation Board and spent 7 years serving on the AFP Board. Paul was the proud recipient of the AFP Colorado Chapter Outstanding Fundraiser award.
