About The Event
This hourlong discussion centers the experiences of Black nonprofit leaders as fundraisers and executives building relationships across the private sector and with elected officials to raise dollars for their organizations. While there are many offerings around the tactics to fundraise, this discussion offers an opportunity for leaders to ponder what paths to access exist within their current social networks.
This discussion is moderated by Erinn Corbett-Wright, a professional with a decades’ experience in government and philanthropy. Panelists are Portia Fullard, Executive Director at CCS Fundraising and Donna Frisby-Greenwood, President and CEO of the Fund for the School District of Philadelphia. All three women have worked in fundraising and grantmaking across the private and public sectors.
- Receive practical resources from nonprofit executive directors and development staff on how to steward lasting, authentic relationships with elected officials and corporate volunteerism/giving teams that yield financial support for their organizations
- Learn actionable tasks that teams can undertake to develop clear maps of social networks and create stewardship plans that are actionable for Boards of Directors and Development teams.
- Cultivate a conversation among three practitioners with experience across Development, Grantmaking, and Nonprofit Leadership on bringing social capital stewardship to life and its impacts on the greater Philadelphia region
