Are your revenue strategies working for your Main Street nonprofit? How do you enhance those strategies for a prosperous (and profitable) future?
On March 20, 22, and 28 in Berryville, Danville, and Abingdon, the spring edition of the Regional Rev Up promises to load your Main Street program with the tools you need to create sustainable and successful fund development strategies.
Whether you are focusing on facade improvements, training your retailers, or developing a new website, running a successful Main Street program means raising money. But more than just fundraising, organizations need to build and cultivate relationships, show value to current and potential donors, understand their organizational strengths and weaknesses, and properly evaluate their events and activities.
Fund Development is more than raising money; it is the strategic positioning of an organization to sustain and grow its resources through relationship building. Creating a shared vision, clear mission, creative strategies and effective communications help sustain and ensure the success of the organization.
Join the Virginia Main Street staff to learn components of a Fund Development Plan emphasizing partnership, ownership and results, including:
- The difference between fund development and fundraising;
- Board roles and responsibilities in fundraising;
- How to assess and build your organization’s readiness for fund development; and
- The importance of diversifying income to withstand losing an event or major donor.
Registration is free. Lunch will cost $15 and is only payable by cash on site at the event. Registration for each Rev Up session closes one week prior to the event, so register now to reserve your spot!
