Fund Development Network

Fund Development Network: February 6, 2018 

First Wednesday of every month from 4 P.M. to 5 P.M.

The Fund Development Network is an opportunity for fundraising peers to connect, interact, share best practices, develop skills and knowledge, gain guidance and insight, support each other, and grow professionally. Each month, facilitator Linda Grizely (The Art of Tenacity) will present a vital topic related to fundraising, followed by a collaborative round table discussion.

  • To create a strong society of fund development professionals that help nonprofits in McHenry County prosper and better serve their causes in an effort to create a community that will be better for all people to live now and for generations to come. 
  • To provide a collaborative and welcoming environment where fund development peers can discuss ideas, get feedback, and make connections.

February 6, 4 p.m.-5 p.m.  Social media can be so exciting and yet so frustrating. Take the guesswork out of LinkedIn at our February Fund Development Network meeting! We'll discuss how to use LinkedIn for Fund Development and brainstorm how we can use the platform to reach more potential donors. Join us for a brief presentation followed by discussion and networking!

Upcoming Topics:
  • Fostering Corporate Partnerships and Sponsorships
  • Donor Cultivation and Stewardship 
  • Planned Giving and Estate Giving
  • And more!
