Resiliency and Sustainability: Exploring Best Practices in Development and Fundraising [HRA Members Meeting, Virtual, Fall 2020]

For the first time, the members’ meeting planning committee is organizing a session dedicated exclusively to development and fundraising. In this interactive session, we will discuss best practices and proven strategies for fundraising and navigating through challenging periods. The panel will address questions like:

• What kinds of strategies can we put in place now to overcome inevitable situations that will negatively impact our abilities to fundraise?
• How do we make our organizations as catastrophe-proof as possible?
• What is the best way to plan for long-term sustainability while addressing short-term organizational needs?

In this session, Ray Happy, Principal and Managing Director from CCS Fundraising, will set the stage and then moderate a panel discussion by HRA members who will share their experiences and lessons learned.
