Crossroads and Turning Points – Cultivating the Bench Strength of your Development Team
On Friday, March 3rd, The Fieldstone Leadership Network hosted its first Crossroads and Turning Points for 2017. Featuring Kathy Drucquer Duff from KDD Philanthropy, over 40 San Diego nonprofit leaders participated in a half day session to receive training and guidance on nuancing donor strategies and outreach.
The session provided practical ideas and advice on the “art” associated with the science of moves management within an organization’s donor development strategy. The session also addressed: asking the right questions, incorporating transitional language into donor meetings, portfolio management strategies and tools to assist in the growing, and upgrading of portfolios and the discipline needed to be successful in this work.
Kathy Drucquer Duff’s unique experience across healthcare, higher education and nonprofit organizations allows her to assess the opportunities within each environment and provide trainings on a wide range of areas. KDD Philanthropy is one of the few consulting firms that regularly builds practical exercises, real-life scenarios and tailored role plays into trainings – allowing participants to take away practical, ready to implement tools for their work. We are proud to have partnered with KDD Philanthropy to bring this learning opportunity to nonprofits across a wide spectrum of focus areas to support them in reaching their fund development goals.
