When it comes to asking for donations, most of us get nervous. Not Jane Jordan! She has been working with nonprofits to effectively fund raise and has trained hundreds of SBDC nonprofit clients how to master the craft. Here is a preview of what she will be presenting at our 5th Annual UNF Nonprofit Management Conference on September 18th:
Preparing For and Making the Ask. . .
As a prospective donor, how would YOU like to be cultivated and solicited for a gift? What is most important to YOU in that process? In this workshop, we’ll talk about the “rights” of a successful solicitation, the steps leading to the“ask”, and why we get NO for an answer.
Jane Jordan, founding principal of PartnersWithNonprofits.Org, has extensive experience in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, providing her with a unique perspective on the process of asking for and receiving charitable contributions.
Jane has been providing fund development, capital campaign, board and organization development, strategic planning and executive search consulting services to nonprofit organizations for 22 years.
Before establishing PartnersWithNonprofits.Org, as Vice President of Baptist Medical Center Foundation in Jacksonville, FL, Jane directed the organization through critical years of strategic growth and development.
Prior to that, she served as Vice President, Community Affairs for Barnett Bank of Jacksonville (now Bank of America), over a ten-year period developing the bank’s charitable giving and community outreach programs to the point where Barnett Bank of Jacksonville and its leadership received national recognition for its community initiatives and charitable giving.
