Registration open for Essential Sponsorship Clinic at College

Nonprofits LEAD, a program of Marietta College, will present an exciting workshop for leaders of nonprofit organizations to learn about effective, best practices for fundraising on Thursday, March 23rd. 

Appropriate for any size nonprofit, the Essential Sponsorship Clinic will take place from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in the Andrews Hall Great Room. 

This is a session featuring innovative content and lively interaction.

Whether used for connecting with companies, foundations or individuals, attendees will be introduced to a sustainable, five-step system meant to bring order to the often chaotic fundraising cycle. The process detailed throughout the session is one that is natural, ethical and firmly rooted in an understanding that it is better to connect with those who are most moved by your mission.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring board members, regardless of their fundraising experience, as their first-hand participation often leads to increased success.

The session will take attendees through the entire process of assessing challenges and opportunities through to preparation with the Total Toolkit, engagement over a 12-month calendar, and implementation of stewardship and preparations for a second cycle.

Presenter Barbara Harrington, founder of Sponsorship Plus, has created and implemented ethical sponsorship programs for scores of nonprofit clients in markets across the country. Clients often credit her Integrated Sponsorship Path model as the key to aligning real-world solutions for sustainable success.

While registration will close on March 19th, those wanting to attend are encouraged to register before March 10th. Tickets are $30 per person for those that register before March 10th and $40 per person after that date. Those who complete early bird registration will also be entered into a drawing for a Sponsorship Makeover, a one-on-one session with Harrington, valued at $500.
