PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EVENTS

Roundtables go virtual

Calling all community college fundraising professionals! Professional development roundtables provide Network members with an informal setting to collectively explore "hot topics" in the community college advancement arena. Hosts will facilitate a focused, informed and interactive discussion. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. Use this opportunity to learn from your colleagues, offer your proven strategies and keep your finger on the pulse.

Presented by Sally Cox, Foundation for Grossmont & Cuyamaca Colleges

 

The Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges has been managing large grants for their district for more than 20 years.

Table for one? If you are all alone in your foundation’s office – you are not alone!  Many CA Community College Foundation teams are tiny but mighty.

Foundation offices of any size can learn from these experienced professionals, so bring your burning questions.

 


NETWORK ROUNDTABLE: YOUR DONOR IS READY TO MAKE A MAJOR GIFT – ARE YOU READY TO ACCEPT IT?

MARCH 30, 2022 1:00 - 2:30 pm 

Hosted by Shannon Hill

 

In higher education, we recognize donors by naming the student center, endowed chairs, bricks and even bathrooms. District bond measures have helped pave the way for new and updated facilities that can create opportunities to recognize your major donors. Do you have all the tools you need to shepherd a major gift through your governance process to your Board of Trustees?

Join us as we walk through processes for recognizing major gifts from the perspective of a multi and single college district. Please bring your documents and processes (or share a lack there of) to see where you can tweak (or create) your procedures to keep donor legacies alive. This will be an interactive Roundtable for you to bring your best practices.
