Why do some fundraising programs soar when so many struggle?
Is it lack of money or talent?
And it definitely isn't for lack of using "best practices".
It's about where we start - our mental paradigm. Fundraising isn't effortless or without challenges. Technique or tools alone, however, won't lead you to lasting, scalable success.
Join Larry C. Johnson, founder of The Eight Principles, and author of the award-winning book, The Eight Principles of Sustainable Fundraising as he shares what happens when you put first things first. Learn:
- What makes philanthropic revenue truly sustainable
- How to adopt the right fundraising Zen or paradigm
- How to avoid confirmation bias in building a fundraising program
- How to identify the right donors - the ones who will stick with you through thick and thin
Larry founded The Eight Principles to make strategic fund development easier to understand - for professional and volunteer alike, to make training coaching more useful and specifically applicable and to provide the experience of joy and fulfillment to fundraisers and donors alike.
He serves on both nonprofit and corporate boards including the advisory council of The Carter Center, the philanthropy of the 39th President of the Unites States.
Larry has coached the staff and volunteers of hundreds of nonprofit organizations in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. He speaks nationally including keynotes at the National Nonprofit Leadership Conference, the North American YMCA Development Organization, the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Society of Charitable Gift Planners. He is a guest speaker and lecturer at institutions of higher learning.
Larry is a graduate of Yale University and has held the CFRE distinction since 1997.
