We are constantly receiving training and advice on how to ask for funds from major donors. While this knowledge is important, how many of us receive training on how to build a culture of philanthropy inside our organization? And what if appealing to major donors isn't inclusive of your beneficiary community? In this session, we will discuss fundraising, philanthropy, and philanthropic culture AND how to re-frame your development to empower and democratize your supporters. Interested in inclusive, authentic, and thoughtful fundraising? Join us and see how fundraising doesn't have to be a dirty word!
