posted Wednesday, August 14, 2013 by Janice Fonger

AFP Webinar presented by Christopher M. Cannon, CFRE

Fundraisers must balance dozens of daily priorities. Operational issues often require more than their fair share of attention, which can diminish time with donors. How can a busy fundraiser get operational issues under control? This session will guide fundraisers toward the most efficient strategies to manage data, technology, reporting, and business processes. These issues cannot be ignored, but fundraisers will learn effective assessment and solution techniques during this session. Participants can expect a post-session road map for resolving operations issues that will allow a quick return to donors and dollars.

In This Session:

  • Discipline: fundraisers need to focus on those things that help raise money. Sometimes, involvement in fixing operations is essential, but fundraisers need to be careful about getting into the weeds.
  • Discernment: fundraisers encounter dozens of challenges each day, but many of these will have little to no impact on the bottom line.
  • Delegation: fundraisers need to know how to empower team members to solve problems.
