Not Your Parents’ Wallet:  
A Three-Step Plan to Embrace the Future of Giving 

Speaker:  Aly Sterling, CFRE

Co-sponsored by Community Foundation of Elkhart County

 

Description: While still containing money (the plastic kind at least), the wallet held by today’s donor only slightly resembles that of their parents. And while some of our nonprofits may choose to lament these changes, others see immense opportunity for success and real mission transformation. As nonprofit consultants, our team is close to the pulse of the sector. By listening to nonprofits and monitoring how donors are responding to our clients, we understand how to raise money, motivate donors’ decisions and organize scarce resources for impact. And we’re constantly evaluating our efforts against the changing landscape to distinguish fleeting trends from actual paradigm shifts and shape best practices that are vital to your work. Join us to explore the “wallet” concept, discuss how to implement a three-step plan with your nonprofit, and most importantly, embrace a new era of giving!

Aly Sterling is an accomplished speaker, published author, active board member, and proud owner of Aly Sterling Philanthropy and the Board Catalyst Institute in Toledo, Ohio. Her expertise includes fundraising, strategic planning, search consultation, board leadership development and corporate giving consultation for organizations of varying sizes and capacities.

*Registration closes on August 17.
