Whether your coalition has $1 million in the bank or is barely getting by on a “shoestring” budget, the idea of more funds coming into your coalition is an enticing one. And, whether your coalition services a rural county or the urban core, you, too, can be a fundraiser. How, you ask? Because coalition fundraising is very much about connecting the coalition’s mission with the interests of potential stakeholder organizations and people and then building lasting relationships with those stakeholders. On a shoestring budget? Greg Puckett, Executive Director, Community Connections, Inc. in West Virginia will be helping coalition leaders to find creative ways to economize and fundraise that support the framework for community change by teaching the course, “Shoestrings, Velcro and Duct Tape…Understanding How to Budget for Sustainability,” from 1:30-5 p.m. Aug. 6.
It is just one course at CADCA’s Mid-Year Training Institute in Indianapolis, Aug. 2-6 in Indianapolis.
“I feel the workshops at the Mid-Year clearly propel coalitions from just the ‘how-tos’, to the ‘let’s dos’. Simply put, the energy that comes from sessions at the Mid-Year move coalitions forward in new direction never thought of before,” said Greg Puckett,. “My course will hopefully guide coalitions forward with a renewed vigor or spark, as they change each of the seven behavioral change strategies within their communities.”
Coalition staff and members are natural “sellers” to convince investors, Puckett said.
“Join us as we discover the nuts and bolts of fundraising through dynamic lecture, group activities, and role playing. This session will explore the fundamentals of fundraising with plenty of time for applying fundraising principles to your coalition including determining your coalition’s readiness for fundraising, building an integrated fundraising plan and mobilizing members to implement the plan,” he concluded.
