Expert Webinar: How to Put Funding Muscle Behind Your Strategic Plan

 

Strategic plans and the strategic planning process are vital to organizational relevance and value. And they often create new energy and enthusiasm among staff and volunteers. But without new resources to implement them, these plans often fail to meet heightened expectations, or risk becoming the dreaded binder gathering dust on a shelf. Tom DiFiore, President of National Community Development Services (NCDS) will present in this webinar five-steps to making sure your strategic plan gets funded and fully implemented. 

NCDS is America’s leader in community and economic development fundraising. Since 1977, they have raised over $1.7 billion for EDOs, Chambers of Commerce, and other local & regional organizations in communities of all sizes across the U.S.

Since joining NCDS in 1995, Tom DiFiore has worked directly with scores of community and economic development organizations, helping them acquire hundreds of millions of dollars in support of their missions and strategic plans. Tom is particularly skilled in navigating community dynamics and the process engineering required to galvanize business leaders around programs and projects designed to create shared prosperity and opportunity. Tom earned a B.A. in Economics from the University of Virginia and a M.B.A. from Georgia State University and has served on the Board of Directors of The Giving Institute, which establishes professional and ethical standards for the fundraising industry.

Free Demo Webinar - Universal Reporting: How to Gain Four Hours a Week in Productivity

Generating reports for site selectors, grant administrators, private funding groups or board members can take hours—especially if the information is scattered across multiple locations.

Wouldn’t you like to have all the information in a single location in a ready-to-use report generator? What if that information was located on your website and pulled existing, relevant information?

Golden Shovel Agency’s Universal Report tool for responsive sites makes it fast and easy for users to create customized reports using content from your website.

By only using the 'add to report' link found on all eligible pages, you can populate the content you need for your report. Once you're ready, view your report and you can review and sort your content as well as adding a custom cover page content.

“This is a nice way to use the information on the website. It is so easy to use and customizable. We use it weekly.” –Maureen Nelson, Grow South Dakota.
