Nonprofit Workshop: Donor-Centered Storytelling with Mike Westby 

Telling your story with purpose and meaning results in commitments and beyond. In this informative workshop for development professionals of nonprofits, Mike Westby, President & CEO of Westby Associates, will help you learn to cultivate and manage relationships in a systemic way to explore and expand involvement and investment with new and current donors.

This presentation is for organizations currently in or looking to be in a capital or capacity building campaign. Donor-centered storytelling can raise your vision through effective development and creation of marketing collateral to strengthen your story.

About the Presenter

Following a six-year career out of college as an award-winning sports columnist, Mike has logged 28 years of experience in the development field with a distinct focus on major gifts and strategic fundraising campaigns. Over the years he has represented a diverse group of organizations and missions. Combined, Mike has represented projects that have generated in excess of $180,000,000 (and counting).

Early in his development career Mike had the opportunity to rejuvenate several stalled capital campaigns and developed a reputation for this distinct talent. He drew on this experience and success in forming the core business strategy for Westby Associates, Inc. By identifying the common failures in underachieving campaigns, Mike created a focus for a consultant/practitioner model that “corrects the mistakes before they happen.” It is a model that has grown rapidly throughout the Pacific Northwest, and is responsible for some great facilities and endowed programs across the region.

Mike and Patti have three children, Juliea, Jack and Jordan. They live in Battle Ground, Washington.
