Every organization has a culture and an operational style whether intentionally created or through operational procedures. And every organization is unique from others. What does your advancement or development program reflect? Would you know how to describe it to new employees? Would everyone at your organization describe it the same way? What do high-performance cultures look like for organizations performing optimally in philanthropic and constituent engagement outcomes?
In this webinar, brought to you by Gonser Gerber partner Doug Mason, we will explore in-depth each of five important pillars that support long term success of an advancement program. We will examine the characteristics of high-performance programs, and help you develop methods to improve the advancement culture throughout your organization.
Topics we will cover include:
- The five pillars of strong advancement cultures
