Charitable giving expert Gail Perry knows that times are tough for many charities, and board members and non-profit leaders face the uphill battle of keeping funding levels at a level where they can continue to serve their community. In a nod to those organizations tightening their belts on travel and education, Perry has added inexpensive but content rich on-line webinars to her busy travel and speaking speaking schedule.
“Even in this still shaky economy, you can double contributions by getting board members active and engaged, and these webinars are designed to do just that. I'll give step-by-step strategies and easy to implement information to all the people who give of their time, talents and energies helping others by serving on the board of their local charity...and to make it easy and convenient to learn by utilizing this on-line technology”, said Perry, who has worked for decades in the non-profit arena.
May 13th at 1pm E.T., Perry will host a webinar that will detail six “no ask” strategies for easy fundraising, especially for board members. “This session will focus on specific “no-ask” fundraising jobs, like hosting tours, throwing parties for their friends, creating community buzz, asking everyone they know for help, and how to personally thank donors,” says Perry, who adds that there are many vital tasks that board members can perform, without having to solicit. “They can serve at all levels and get as close to or as far away from the actual moment of solicitation as they want—and still make a huge difference.”
Registration for the webinar and resource materials is offered at an early bird discount rate of $49.00 prior to May 11th at http://www.gailperry.com.
