All the Books Are Wrong: Raising Serious Money for a Serious Cause

TRAINING DAY: PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED
TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 1:30-3:00PM
TRACK: SHELTERING FOR CHANGE

SPEAKER: Bruce Roney, Executive Director, Ottawa Humane Society

The OHS shelter cost just under 16 million dollars, and more than half was raised in the community from donors just like yours. But, along the way, OHS discovered that the books and the standard models for capital campaign fundraising just didn't work. This workshop will explore some of the processes that charities use, what worked and what didn't, and what has to be adapted for a humane society now competing in the "big leagues". Participants will receive sample campaign materials that they can use in their own communities.
