Nonprofit Marketing on a Tight Budget

Want more attention for your work?  Ignored by the news media?  This workshop is designed to help organizations improve marketing success without spending a lot of money.

• Crafting a compelling message
• Who's your audience?  Market segmentation
• Preparing a marketing plan
• Creating effective materials
• Thinking like a journalist: How to work with the news media

Mobilize Your Board to Raise More Money

If your board isn't raising all the money it could -- indeed, if your board isn't raising any money at all -- you're not alone.  In this workshop, we'll discuss the reasons why, and outline strategies to turn things around. You'll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.

• Redefining fundraising: It's not just asking for money
• Addressing myths and misconceptions about fundraising
• Lots of options: Dozens of ways your board members can participate
• Training and motivating your board -- and helping them hold each other accountable

*Lunch will be served. (Included with your $50 seminar fee)
