Leading with Fundraising

Presented by Jane Stein, President of JPS Consulting

 Thursday, February 13, 2020
Networking, Registration, and Full Breakfast 8:00 - 8:30am
Program 8:30 - 9:30am
This session is designed to give Development Directors, CEOs, and Executive Directors (even if they are all the same person!) a hands-on guide to what it takes to lead with fundraising as their top priority. Participants will not only share a lot of laughter, but they will come out knowing they can not only survive as an extraordinary leader in a nonprofit organization, but also thrive as they confidently raise all of the funds they need to meet all of their mission goals.

This session is approved for 1 CFRE credit.


With vast experience in the nonprofit sector, Jane Stein has been providing consultation and training services to nonprofit organizations for more than twenty years.

After the Center became part of the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, Jane opened JPS Consulting. Her experience also includes a tenure as a national director for major gifts for the American Cancer Society. Jane is a past national chairman for campaign training for the United Jewish Appeal, a volunteer position which she held for three years.

Jane has guided nonprofits through the process of strategic planning, board/staff retreats, and all areas of fundraising. She has given keynote addresses, motivational speeches, and training workshops throughout the US. Jane shares her secrets for success in these turbulent times, inspiring her clients and her audiences to solve challenges in the nonprofit sector in a humorous and heartfelt manner.
