Are you a “small shop” development program leader? By small shop we mean you manage few staff members (maybe just one!) with limited resources. As such, you are a committed fundraiser challenged every day to achieve large results.
If so, then AFP NYC’s workshop series focused on Small Shop Fundraising is perfect for you!
Together you will learn from your peers how to successfully navigate fundraising challenges unique to the professional in a small shop setting, as well as develop a network of support that will continue long after the series is over.
This is a four-session series and individual sessions are not available for purchase. This series is focused on engaging a small group of only 18 attendees maximum, so register early. We ask that registrants commit to participating in all sessions.
Sessions are tentatively scheduled for both online and in-person, from 8:30-10:00 am ET, and will be facilitated by Melissa A. Benjamin of Fiver Children’s Foundation, Susan Shapiro of shapiroassociates, Anne Townsend of ART + Strategy, and Gary Weinberg of DM Pros.
