What Lies Ahead for Fundraising Professionals?

After a tumultuous 2016, who knows what 2017 may have in store for fundraising professionals … 

Join Elizabeth Roma and Rachel Dakarian for a webinar on emerging trends in philanthropy and explore the potential implications for charitable organizations. Learn about the so-called “new” Gilded Age of mega-gifts, philanthrocapitalism, impact investing, ultra-high-net-worth individuals, and the migration of the Silicon Valley concept of “disruption” into our field. As development research consultants with The Helen Brown Group, Elizabeth and Rachel will share their observations on the potential impact of these current events on all nonprofits, regardless of size or sector. They will also offer advice on how you can become your fundraising team’s source of critical information and strategic insight while navigating these new challenges and opportunities.
