What to do...too many jobs and not enough time. As nonprofit professionals, we are charged with the huge task of juggling many different segments of donor activities: major donors, direct mail, marketing, events, board relationships and even planned giving. This presentation will help prioritize and give clarity to those individuals who always feel they are reacting instead of being proactive in their work to ensure the greatest return. Learn how to focus on the top areas to direct your efforts.

Paul A. Dunne, CFRE

After a successful business career and inspired by the need to serve after the event of 9/11, Paul joined the nonprofit sector as a Senior Development Officer for the Denver Rescue Mission. He furthered his career serving as Executive Director of Development for the Inner City Health Center where he started the development department and quadrupled donations in a 3 year period before leading them in a $ 5.5M campaign for a new clinic. Mr. Dunne followed up this success by accepting a position with the North Hawaii Community Hospital and guided them through a tumultuous year and managed to cap off their $ 19M campaign by raising the final $ 6M. Paul then returned to the mainland to Ability Beyond Disability on the East Coast where he was one of the primary architects behind their present campaign and introduced the “Power of Ten” concept to the board resulting in over 250 new donor prospects. Throughout his varied fundraising career, Mr. Dunne has been involved with different boards and assisting them in their development needs. He currently serves on the AFP International Fundraising Board along with other national committees. Paul has been awarded the Colorado Chapter AFP Outstanding Fundraiser and was nominated for the Colorado Outstanding Professional in Philanthropy. Driven by the need to give back to his alma mater, Mr. Dunne served as the Vice President for Development for Howard Payne University in Texas, where he and his staff quadrupled their donor base and helped design, identify and raise the first $6.2 million dollars of their new $18M campaign. Before coming to Need Him Global, Paul was the Vice President with the Kempe Foundation in Colorado - a world leader in the fight against child abuse and neglect. After some “gentle nudging”, Mr. Dunne started his own consulting firm, thinkpadsolutions in July 2016.
