Fundraising Expert Andy Robinson
Returns for Three Workshops

Co-presented by the
Fund for Santa Barbara
and Santa Barbara Foundation


Building a Board that Works

To be effective, nonprofits must recruit board members who support their ideals, represent the diversity of the community, and bring a wide range of skills. This workshop covers roles & responsibilities of board members, finding & filling gaps on your board, creating & using a board “job description” and training & motivating your board to raise money.
WHEN: Tuesday, October 7th
~ 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
WHERE:
Cornerstone Community Room, 705 South McClelland St, Santa Maria
Space is limited so register now at:

The Nuts and Bolts of Fundraising

80% of charitable funds come from individual donors, not foundations or corporations. Learn to build a fundraising program that honors your mission, engages potential donors, and raises more money.
WHEN: Tuesday, October 7th
~ 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
WHERE:
Cornerstone Community Room, 705 South McClelland St, Santa Maria
Space is limited so register now at:

Creating (and Using) Your Fundraising Plan

Like anything else in life, fundraising works better if you have a plan — and even better if you follow it. In this workshop, we’ll discuss identifying the best mix of income, building an annual fundraising calendar, identifying ways to benchmark your results and using your plan to educate your board, deflect random fundraising ideas, and stay on task.
WHEN: Friday, October 10th
~ 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
WHERE:
Orfalea Downtown Center, 1221 Chapala St, Santa Barbara
Space is limited so register now at:

http://creatingandusingyourfundraisingplan.eventbrite.com

NOTE: Sliding scale tickets are available for all workshops / no one is turned away for lack of funds. Please contact the Fund for Santa Barbara office at 962-9164 to purchase.
