The most important fundraiser at your institution is the individual who sits in the leadership seat – your president, CEO, head of school, chancellor, or dean. Some leaders embrace their role in working with prospects and donors, while others are uncomfortable at best. But whether the leader you support is new to your institution or has been around for years, their work with your team in advancement is crucial to your institutional success and ability to make great things happen.
Your work in supporting, managing, and preparing your institution’s leader for the campaign is one of the most critical roles you play as an advancement leader. Helping them manage their time, preparing them for prospect visits, and strategizing with them on major solicitations are just a few examples of the essential work you must do to help your leader be an active and effective member of the advancement team.
This program, brought to you by Chad Jolly, partner at Gonser Gerber, focuses on the critical ingredients to address during the pre-planning stage of a comprehensive campaign which will help leaders avoid the common obstacles encountered during the campaign.
Topics we will cover include:
- The President’s Role in a Campaign
- Campaign Culture
- Time Management During a Campaign
- Solicitation Calls and Visits
- Other Campaign Leadership
The fee is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.
