The challenges of the past year have led to a global reorganization of philanthropic priorities. How has does your community’s fundraising strategy approach this seismic shift? If your answer is that you’re not sure yet, you’re not alone! This Learning Network, led by Rachel Swartz Robinson, Director of Donor Engagement at Reconstructing Judaism, will explore both best practices and innovative new strategies from around the Reconstructionist community and broader nonprofit sector to help set your congregation up for success in the months ahead. Topics include online fundraising events, maintaining donor relationships virtually, new membership approaches, and more. Included is a workshop session to gain practical feedback to help your community implement a new strategy or pandemic-proof your biggest fundraiser of the year.
