FUNDRAISING WORKSHOP | $60

8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Lead by Chuck Loring, MBA, CFRE, Senior Founding Partner at Loring, Sternberg & Associates

WORKSHOP:  Effective Fundraising For Staff and Volunteers   – It’s Not About Asking For Money!

Leadership from the staff, volunteers, and Board Members is a critical component in nonprofit fundraising success.  Is your team comfortable in their fundraising role?  Do they know the steps to successful fundraising?  Do team members know that fundraising is really not about asking for money?  Do you know how to engage your supporters in meaningful fundraising? 

This interactive workshop will answer these questions and identify resources to assist you in helping your team fulfill its responsibility to fundraise, including:

  • the reality of today’s nonprofit environment
  • why the organization must have a culture of fundraising
  • why having the right team members is critical for effective fundraising
  • the importance of the staff & volunteer team in fundraising
  • why mission is critical in fundraising success
  • that donor cultivation and stewardship trumps solicitation
  • why the Fundraising Committee does not fundraise
  • why Board members and volunteers must make leadership gifts 
  • the critical role that planned giving will play in philanthropy’s future
  • how income inequality and tax changes have impacted fundraising

Who should participate in this workshop? 

Anyone involved in resource development for your organization. This includes board members, volunteers, and staff.

*Continental breakfast and beverages provided.

THE ARTS AND COMMUNITY HEALTH: HOW THE ARTS CAN HELP BUILD HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES
Jill Sonke
Director, University of Florida, Center for Arts in Medicine Assistant Director, UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine, Gainesville, FL
 
CONNECTING TO SELF AND OTHERS THROUGH THE ARTS
Hope McMath, BFA, MAT, Founder and Director, Yellow House

This Keynote presentation will explore the ways that engagement in the arts, for students and adults alike, can build stronger communities.  The link between the arts and social justice is vital and can provide an avenue for youth to not only develop their own voice, but amplify it through civic engagement.  And as educators, artists, and administrators we also need to be reminded of the powerful connections between creativity, healing, empowerment, truth-telling, wonder, hope, and courage.  Acknowledging and embracing these connections can have a profound impact…on ourselves, those we teach and lead, and the world around us.

RE-HUMANIZING SOCIAL MEDIA AND ON-LINE EDUCATION WITH VR
CHANCE GLASCO
Co-Founder, Doghead Simulations; Co-Founder of the VR collaboration app rumii and Call of Duty
For the entire history of humankind, people have been communicating through a nuanced exchange of body language, vocal intonation, and facial expressions. It wasn't until recent history that we began stripping out these aspects for the sake and convenience of communicating over long distances, whether by phone, social media, or video conferencing. Chance Glasco, co-founder of the virtual reality collaboration app rumii and video game franchise Call of Duty, will share how virtual reality will be re-humanizing social media and on-line education.  He'll cover how the issues of disengagement, lack of focus, and retention are all addressed by attending on-line school using VR technology.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS

United by the Beat: Serving Marginalized Communities

Ulysses Owens, Juilliard Faculty; Founder, Don’t Miss a Beat; Grammy Winner, New York

It is my opinion that environment plays an important role in the development of any child. Statistically, African American children, especially males, are incarcerated at a disproportionately higher rate compared to other ethnic groups within the United States. However, when you look at the factors that play into the environment of many African American males, it's clear to see that poverty, crime, poor education systems, over policing of neighborhoods, lack of job opportunities and other factors contribute to this disparity. 

 

Ten years ago my family and I created our solution to combat the disparities we saw in our community. Don’t Miss A Beat (DMAB) is a performing arts focused non-profit currently operating in Jacksonville, Florida in the Brooklyn Riverside and Beaver Street community.  Since our inception in 2008, we have expanded to over twenty partnerships, operate at (2) Community Art Centers; our Flagship Music, Art and Academic enrichment Summer Camp, and have after school homework assistance programs.  In addition, we have the DMAB Academy of Arts, which offers free instruction to students. We need to understand that one community or demographic is not at a disadvantage. We are all in a very vulnerable place and the only thing that will allow us to overcome is through community and unification of thought, and prioritization of an agenda that is for all. I believe creativity is the agent of change by which we can find unique solutions to this global problem.
