Yes, you can dramatically improve your diversity, equity, and inclusion at your nonprofit through proven fundraising methods.
There have been calls for DEI in the nonprofit world for 20 years. There has been a lot of hand wringing but little change.
There is a lot of white guilt but not a lot of clear direction as to how to make change happen at your nonprofit. Yes, you can create a positive and welcoming atmosphere but beyond that, there are few answers.
This training is about the next step. How to analyze your organization's DEI needs, identify key diverse leaders and major donors. Go beyond tokenism and recruit wealthy, philanthropic, and connected people of color to your board. This is the only way to equity. This same process will help diversify your fundraising as well. 90% of Board Members are white, 73% of donors are white. Break the trend. This training is highly practical and immediately useful. It's designed for Development leadership including Prospect Research leadership but will be especially effective if you include Board Member and other non-development leadership. This is two hour webinars.

Class 2: DEI and Major Gifts Workshop- Live creating a DEI/Major Gifts plan with Armando. Answer specific questions and issues.
