This session will provide as a framework the five “shifts” every nonprofit leader needs to make (and the most effective leaders have already made) to be successful in positioning their nonprofit to raise more revenue in a sustainable way. Participants will leave the workshop with new knowledge, skills, and tools to begin to shift their nonprofits into position to raise significantly more funds. Executive directors, development directors, board members, and aspiring leaders of nonprofits of any field, type, and size are invited to attend.
