Get Your Fundraising House In Order: Building a Strong Foundation

Friday, April 5, 2019
8:30am – 12:30pm

Why is it that some fundraising programs do better than others when the organizations have the same basic plan?  Whether your organization is just starting out or one that has never been terribly successful with your fundraising efforts, sometimes figuring first or next steps can be a hurdle.

Often organizations overlook the basic building blocks that are essential in designing your fundraising strategy.

This is not your typical basic fundraising workshop! Together, with presenter, Kimberly Parker, CFRE, Executive Director of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, we’ll explore the fundamentals that need to be in place before you start or revive a struggling fundraising program.

If you are an Executive Director or staff member that needs to work on fundraising without a clue of where to begin or a Board member or committee chair that has been assigned the task of leading the fundraising effort, this four hour session will share tools to assess your organization’s fundraising readiness as well as tips to help you create or elevate your basic fundraising program.

Info Session: Employment Law Update

 

Navigating the minefield of employment laws is becoming increasingly difficult when each passing year brings change and more change.

In this 90-minute Info Session, attorney, Steven McFarlane, will cover three topics of importance for every organization, regardless of size.

The majority of the session will focus on the new interpretation by the CA Supreme Court of the laws governing the designation and use of Independent Contractors.  Steven will also touch on the current status of California’s minimum wage law, provide an update on the new requirement around Sexual Harassment training and to whom that applies, and cover other labor law changes pertinent to the not-for-profit community.**

It is more critical than ever that you are armed with the information you need to protect your organization; join CNL at this session and make sure you are ‘in the know.’
