Gonser Gerber Institute
Professional Development Webinars and Distance-Learning Resources
With physical distancing measures in place and teams working remotely, the Gonser Gerber Institute has several options to help:
The Advancement Clinic provides you with a half-day, in-depth, virtual consulting session with one of our experienced advancement and leadership consultants. Advancement Clinics are designed to address your key challenges, answer your most complex questions, and conclude with a practical set of action steps to help you move past the hurdles and roadblocks you’re currently facing. Your Gonser Gerber consultant will conduct a deep dive into the knotty problems and issue(s) you are facing and will guide you to an implementation plan that helps you make the difference between “just surviving” to “thriving.”
Past Webinar Content
Institutions that have registered for a Gonser Gerber Webinar receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the program. Recordings are available to stream for up to 12 months after the date of the original program, but the presentation is yours to keep. Now is a good time to share those past program recordings or presentations with members of your team, review them remotely, and come back together to discuss as a group through live chat or video streaming interfaces.
On Demand Content
Even if you haven’t registered in the past, previous webinar recordings are available for your purchase and review. This convenient option lets you watch a past program at a time that is best suited for you and your team, from any location. Programs include:
- Social Media – Best Practices to Connect and Engage Your Constituents
- Implementing Performance Metrics for Gift Officers: Avoiding Problems and Making Metrics Work
- Renew and Enhance Your Policies – Contact Reports
Gonser Gerber will continue to schedule and present webinars featuring our consulting team and industry leaders, and our content will cover topics that you can benefit from now and in the future. You register with one flat rate for your institution, and then members of your team can participate from any location. You will also receive the presentation and recording so you can watch or rewatch at a time that is convenient for individuals in different time zones or with different schedules. Some of our upcoming programs include:
- Our Campaign and COVID-19 – The Impact of this Economy on Your Campaign
- Resilient – American Philanthropy in the Wake of Economic Uncertainty
- Crowdsourcing and Digital Fundraising
Custom Workshops and Webinars
Gonser Gerber Consultants are available to present custom workshop or webinar content to you and your team on topics that you need to be discussing now.

The purpose of the Bulletin is to advance the field of advancement through education, and each edition is themed around a particular topic of importance to advancement professionals. An archive of past editions is on our website to read, share with colleagues, and discuss with your teams.
