The Scioto Foundation is pleased to announce its 1st annual Southern Ohio Nonprofit Conference. It will be held on March 29, 2018 at the Shawnee State Park Lodge. Our focus for the inaugural conference will be nonprofit fundraising.
Headlining our event at 9am will be Lee Ellen Martin, CFRE. She will begin our conference with an interactive session focusing on the "Seven Strategies to Development". The session will be a mix of best practices and practical applications. The seven strategies include: Prospect Identification, Annual Giving, Special Events, Major Gifts, Planned Giving, In-Kind Giving, and Stewardship. Participants will leave equipped to make a development plan that will help to organize their fundraising activities for efficient and effective strategies. Staff should encourage their development chair, board chair (or both!) to attend with them. Development is a team effort and participants will have a chance to brainstorm their plans. Lee Ellen brings 30 years of practical experience in grassroots and larger nonprofits. From annual giving and special events to major gifts and planned giving, Lee Ellen has experience in them all.
After lunch, our conference will focus upon Nonprofit Event Planning. At 1pm, Kim Cutlip, Executive Director of the Scioto Foundation, will facilitate a conversation around event planning best practices. Following this, a panel of successful event fundraisers will share the ABCs of Successful Fundraising Events. Included in the panel are Debbie Smith, Ohio River Valley American Red Cross, Patty Tennant, Scioto Foundation, and Kevin Johnson of Main Street Portsmouth.
The cost is $25.00 per person which includes the cost for breakfast, lunch and materials. To register, visit here or mail your check with SONC in the memo line and list of attendees to: Scioto Foundation, P.O. Box 911, Portsmouth, Ohio 45662. Deadline to register is March 22!!
