AFP-NNE & CONFR http://www.confr.org Wed, 04 Feb 2015 18:06:17 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.8 NH Grants Institute – March 30-April 1, 2015 http://www.confr.org/2014/11/nh-grants-institute-january-12-14-2015/ http://www.confr.org/2014/11/nh-grants-institute-january-12-14-2015/#comments Sun, 16 Nov 2014 18:01:52 +0000 http://www.confr.org/?p=2640 Writing a grant can be a time-consuming, hair-yanking experience with a hit-or-miss outcome. Yet so often board members or executive directors believe that “getting a grant for that” will be the answer to your nonprofit’s financial needs.

How can you make sure that your grant writing efforts are strategic and effective? How does it carry out the initial approach to a foundation? What should you do if your proposal is rejected? Accepted?

This three-day workshop will cover grant writing from research to writing to stewarding the relationship with your funders. We’ll spend time on the different kinds of foundations, organizational readiness and pre-grant planning, the nuts and bolts of writing the proposal, budgets, logic models, thinking strategically about what a funder is looking for, evaluating outcomes, and grant writing as an organization-wide responsibility.

This workshop is perfect for novice or intermediate grant-seekers.

Workshop participants will learn from experts in the field and hear from the funders themselves how to make the most of the opportunity to win grants.

This is is a 3-day workshop that runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM from Monday, March 30th, through Wednesday, April 1st.

Presented by:

Betsy McNamara
Principal, Senior Consultant
Full Circle Consulting

With over twenty years of nonprofit fundraising and campaign management, Betsy has raised more than $10 million for community investments that have improved the lives of low-income and disabled populations, constructed community arts facilities, and secured underdeveloped farmland from future development.

Key Performance Indicators: How to REALLY Measure Success!

Kathleen will challenge you to look at your own ‘dashboard’ reporting.  What data is being measured; what are you trying to manage; does your board feel empowered with the information provided in your reports; how do you address the necessary conflicts between finance reports and development reports? Do these numbers accurately reflect your department’s success (or failure)? What are the success factors you should be measuring and reporting to the board?

Join Kathleen and your colleagues to consider

  • How to identify your Key Performance Indicators
  • How to measure what you manage?
  • How to prepare reports that will MOTIVATE your board

Kathleen Kelley, CFRE and CPA, has been a Development Director, a Finance Director and a Treasurer of several non-profit boards.  She has managed fund raising campaigns over $2,000,000, has developed budgets over $2,000,000 and related board reports, has successfully written government grants and private foundation grants, and has been responsible for audits of towns, small non-profits and universities. She has studied various dashboards and reporting schemes to support or encourage more engaged board members.

A.  Planned Giving Beyond the Jargon: Incorporating Legacy Giving into Small Shops

*Levels 1 and 2; Special emphasis on Executive Directors and Development Professionals of Small Organizations

Presenter: Al Cantor, Principal, Alan Cantor Consulting LLC

Presentations on planned giving often get bogged down in technical discussions of various gift vehicles. This knowledge is important, of course, but it’s critical first to understand the larger picture: how do planned gifts work, and how to they fit into an individual donor’s personal financial and philanthropic planning? We will cover the basic tax incentives, the importance of appreciated stock and other assets, and ways of recognizing a planned giving opportunity. We will discuss the central importance of the simple bequest. We will talk about how staff and board members can raise the subject delicately but effectively with their donors. And we’ll do all of this in English, not legalese!

Topics included are:

  • Two simple and effective steps you can take now to jumpstart a planned giving program
  • How to recognize a planned giving opportunity
  • How to raise the subject with your donors – and how to explain the concepts to them
  • The characteristics of a planned giving prospect
  • How to integrate planned giving into the rest of your development program
  • The role that stock gifts play in introducing the subject of planned giving

B.   Best Practices for Development Professionals

*Level 2: Essential for current and aspiring Development Directors

Presenter: Rick Blain, President, Richard R. Blain & Associates

This intensive workshop will explore the role of an organization’s primary fundraiser and the principles and procedures that he/she will use to create the best fundraising program possible.

  • Ensuring ethical and sound practices that match the values of the organization Valuing donors’ goals, dreams and aspirations, and to create relationships and transparency

Positioning Your Organization for the Transfer of Wealth:
An Insider’s View of Estate Planning

With guest presenter: Robert A. Wells, JD

The long-anticipated transfer of wealth not only has started but will continue to flow over the next fifty years. The Boston College Center for Wealth and Philanthropy estimates that by the year 2055 some $41 trillion will change hands as Americans pass their accumulated assets from one generation to the next.

How might it affect New Hampshire’s philanthropic and nonprofit sectors? Is there a way to prepare for this phenomenon that will enhance the potential for personal satisfaction on the part of wealth holders–and benefit the community as a whole? Are there ways for individual organizations to gain the attention of wealth advisors and estate attorneys?

Join Bob Wells to consider:

  • what will motivate donors to include your organization in their estate planning
  • how the good work of local New Hampshire nonprofits can get on a donor’s radar screen
  • how to build relationships with the future heirs of this wealth

Bob is a director of the firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton and is a member and former chair of the Trust and Estate Department. He is a frequent lecturer before professional and civic groups on the topics of estate planning and probate law. Bob received his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School (1967) and his B.A. from DePauw University (1964). He has been named as a Super Lawyer and as Best Lawyer of the Year in 2012 for Nonprofit/Charities Law.

Whether you’re an executive director who is also responsible for doing the fundraising or the development director of a one-person shop, being responsible for everything – from grant proposal writing, to individual giving, to database management, to online giving and creating a website – adding a social media component can feel overwhelming. But a strong social media presence can help all the other facets of your organization, so how do you find the time to make it happen?

A. What Does Exceptional Fundraising Look Like?
* Levels 1 and 2
Presenter: Mario Capozzoli, Director of Development, League of NH Craftsmen, will facilitate a panel of seasoned development officers talking about some of our biggest issues in a peer-to-peer fashion.

You have a job description; you know what to do. But do you wonder if you’re doing it right? Is there a Best Practices model for development and does it come with a “Best Failures” list as well? A panel of some of New Hampshire’s seasoned fundraisers will share their nuggets of fundraising wisdom learned from decades of experience in the field.

Topics included are:

  • How do you work through the challenges posed (internally) from your own organization?
  • What are our biggest fears and how do we deal with them?
  • What are some ways to partner with your program colleagues so that they are sensitive and supportive of development?
  • How to stay balanced with an impossible workload.
  • How and when to say “no” – to yourself and others.

B. How You Can Use Assessments & Evaluations to Demonstrate Impact for Your Organization
* Level 2
Presenter: Jamie Forbes, Opus Advisors

There’s a lot of talk about assessments, metrics, and outcomes, especially from donors and funders who want to know the effectiveness of their gifts. But once you have this information, what do you do with it? How does it help to answer the inevitable question, “What difference does your organization make?” To be successful and invite additional investment, nonprofits need to use their data to illustrate the impact the organization is making in its community and in peoples’ lives.

Topics included are:

  • Which self assessments and evaluations are most effective
  • How to ask the right questions so you’ll get back the data you need
  • How to translate numbers into demonstration of impact
  • How to use data to tell the story of your success to the world

C. Sophisticated Social Media Plans
* Level 2
Presenter: Jayme Simões, President, Louis Karno & Company, will facilitate a panel of consultants and users

Social Media has been seen by many in the nonprofit sector as the silver bullet to both friend-raising and fund-raising. As a result, your organization already has a presence on the web, through Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, MySpace, blogs, message boards, forums, wikis and on and on. With all the tools available to you, how do you choose what works and what doesn’t? Learn how to measure your current plan, determine if you’re receiving the ROI that you’re seeking, and hear which combinations work best for others.

Topics included are:

  • With so many choices, what helps you to stay focused on mission
  • Are you sending the right message in the right way
  • Measuring whether you are getting the most bang for your buck
  • Staying credible and trustworthy while enhancing your image
  • Integrating your social media plan with your development plan
  • Tips for successful blogs

* Level 1 is introductory; Level 2 assumes foundational knowledge on the topic; Levels 1-2 is appropriate for all learners.
