Professional fundraisers can’t begin to match the power of a campaign spearheaded by a leadership group of volunteers. An Annual Fund Cabinet provides fundraising strength because it’s made up of constituency-based teams—leadership donors, parents, alumni families, grandparents, teachers, and staff—each chaired by a representative of that group. When these volunteers communicate, peer-to-peer, donors hear the message.
In this Webinar, thinking about your own volunteers, you’ll create a preliminary structure for your school’s Annual Fund Cabinet, based on size, staffing, financial resources, and fundraising experience.
When your cabinet is effectively recruited, structured, trained, and supported, it’s a force multiplier that not only brings in funds, but develops leadership, creates strong bonds with the school, and enhances your overall culture of philanthropy.
