Nonprofit Seminar Series: Post-2020 Fundraising


Join trainers Joyce Cellars and Shana Trombley of CPG Enterprises, Inc. for an interactive discussion on current fundraising trends and a look ahead to what the coming 18-24 months might have in store. No crystal balls here, but we will analyze trends and data, consider the impacts of over a year of pandemic lockdowns, calls for racial justice, and climate action movements, and explore adaptations of traditional fundraising best practices through a 2021 lens. Please come with your questions and your own experiences to share with the group!
