PAD screening event

Posted By J. B. Hunt, AAAneurysm Outreach, Friday, September 16, 2016

UMC New Orleans to Host Free Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Screening Event
PAD Awareness Month event will take place Saturday, September 24

 (NEW ORLEANS) – Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD), a condition that develops when arteries become clogged with plaque, affects one in every 20 Americans over the age of 50. Those with PAD are at greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke. This condition does not always come with symptoms, so many people who have PAD don’t know it.

In recognition of PAD Awareness Month, UMC New Orleans will host a free ultrasound screening & prevention event on Saturday, September 24 from 9 a.m. The screening will take place in UMC Conference Center, Room J. It is presented in partnership with AAAneurysm Outreach, New Cardiovascular Horizons and Amerigroup Real Solutions, will include a quick, painless, and non-invasive procedure to measure systolic blood pressure in the limbs.

 

Pre-registration is preferred for the September 24 event, but walk-ins are welcome. To schedule an appointment for screening, call (888) 871-3801.

There's Still Time to Register for the 2016 Greater New Orleans Fundraising Conference!

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Make plans now to attend the

 AFP Greater New Orleans Fundraising Conference

It's an excellent and inexpensive professional development opportunity for anyone working inphilanthropy. 

 

Held at Boomtown Casino, New Orleans 

 

  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Keynote Speaker - Kim Klein

 

Making Movement Building a Key Component of Fundraising Professionalism: In the broadest terms, the work of the nonprofit sector is about creating vibrant, interesting and safe communities for everyone who lives in them.  We do this through the arts, education, advocacy, direct service and research.  There is constant pressure to raise more and more money which often requires hiring more staff.  This has created a spiral of costs which is not sustainable.  Fundraising programs have simply tried to adapt to whatever was going on in the economy, but now we have to lead the way out of this unequal society—engaging our organizations, our donors and our sector to agitate and advocate  for real change.  Fundraising provides a way to do that, and a broad base of donors is key to building power. Looking at fundraising through the lens of social justice will make us better fundraisers and organizations more likely to actually bring about the changes we talk about.  In this provocative keynote, Kim Klein asks us to recommit ourselves to creating the world we want to live in even if this means we have rethink the nature of professionalism.

 

Sessions:

Brightspots - Kim Klein  (for professionals with 8 or more years of fundraising experience) 

Three years ago the Underdeveloped report revealed that many nonprofits are stuck in a vicious cycle that threatens their ability to raise  resources. Bright Spots for Fundraising, a follow-up study, identifies potential solutions to the sector's challenges. Co-author Kim Klein will discuss the report's findings, which will be released in late April. 

 

Donor Engagement:  Pyramid or Vortex? - Marc Barnes

When we think about donor engagement, the pyramid always comes to mind, but is there another way?  In this session, we will explore the vortex as a new model of donor acquisition and engagement and compare/contrast it to the well-known pyramid.  Attendees should leave with a new understanding of ways to capture donors and move them through the continuum of donor engagement.  

 

Write with Love - Jen Love
Join me and share (well, I’ll share and you can steal) everything you need to know about writing stories that shine. You’ll learn simple, effective ways to improve your stories right now, and ways to build on your knowledge over time and hone your storytelling craft. I’ll give you my well-curated and (until now) top secret list of interview questions that I promise will get you to the emotions you need in your next story. And, with full hearts, we’ll dive into crafting unforgettable thank you letters.
Give NOLA Day: Fundraising Lessons Learned - Blathrae Gillin and Allie Betts
Giving days are growing in popularity across the country with both nonprofits and do nors, providing a single day where millions are raised in and for the community. In 2016, more than 700 nonprofits participated in the third annual GiveNOLA Day, a 24-hour, online giving event. In this session, we will delve into the fundraising tactics nonprofits have used to find successon GiveNOLA Day and beyond.

Be the Best You Can Be:  Strategies for Continuous Improvement - Jenny Bigelow, Alan Brickman and  David Schlakman
(for professionals with 8 or more years of fundraising experience)
Do you really know how effective your staff, board, and programs are? Do you have honest conversations about what's working and not working? Do you have the data and the internal systems to assess effectiveness and implement the necessary changes? This interactive workshop will provide key concepts and practical tools to help you create a culture of continuous improvement in your organization that will increase your effectiveness and ensure your sustainability.

  

Capital Campaigns: Are We Ready? -  Holly Lang and Michelle Buchanan

Your executive director is saying “We need to increase fundraising!” Your board is saying “Let’s do a campaign!” And you’re saying “Let’s make a plan for success!” If this sounds familiar, rest assured that you’re in good company. Whether you’re considering your first campaign or the first in a long time, you will benefit from this information-packed session on the essential preparations for successful campaigns. Topics will include evaluating your organization’s campaign readiness, understanding the factors that influence campaign success, generating buy-in from executive staff and board, and steps you can take to ensure you’re on the right track.

 

Donor Retention: Current Rates are Startling! What Can Every Fundraiser Do to Improve It - Chris Painchaud

This session explores the Fundraising Effectiveness Project report commissioned by AFP and the Urban Institute. The dismal news in this report can and should be an eye opener for every nonprofit engaged in fundraising.  We will focus on the root causes of poor retention rates, and offer tips for improvement based on the principles of Dr. Adrian Sargeant and Tom Ahern: two worldrenowned authorities on building donor loyalty. Sargeant and Ahern’s principles are based upon years of research conducted in the sector and can be used by any organization, whether you are a oneperson shop or a large department. We will show examples of their principles in action. The results can be astounding when put into daily use!

Diversity - Tony Enterante and DeShanna Brown, MPA
This session will take a brief look at diversity trends employers are facing in regards to hiring and staffing employees for an organization.  We will also discuss some of the external diversity trends facing fundraisers in the local, regional, and national markets in the United States.  Diversity trends are no longer just racial backgrounds.  These trends now include racial, ethnic, age, sex, sexual orientation, and cultural backgrounds – just to include a few.
Design with Love - John Lepp
The look and design of your communications can have a huge impact on your donors - and their giving. It can make them feel excluded - or - charm them with surprise and delight. Design and creative are  important, critical parts of loving your donors.  And failing to understand some of the basics of design can seriously hurt response rates and the effectiveness your fundraising! Join John Lepp, of the Canadian firm Agents of Good, to learn how to use design to enhance and actually nail a fundraising campaign. He'll show you how design can catapult a regular appeal into something so special your donors will never forget it. With a primary focus on print design and creative, we will take a look at a few case studies through Jane Donor’s eyes and learn a TON of things you can do right now to make your fundraising raise more money tomorrow.

 

Setting yourself up for Corporate Donations & Sponsorships  - Amy Collins
In this session, we will take a look at what makes powerful partnerships work – both for corporate sponsors and for nonprofits. She will offer tips and examples on how to set your nonprofit organization up for success. Collins is passionate about putting people and ideas together. At the end of this session, you will understand what corporate sponsors look for and be better able to build powerful partnerships that are mutually beneficial and sustainable.
 
Strategic Planning for the organization, staff and YOU! - Charles Heim, FAHP 
(for professionals with 8 or more years of fundraising experience)
An in-depth look at your relationships with the CEO, Board, and Staff along with the work ethic.  Taking a closer look at managing  the fund raising program, developing work plans, accountability, research, and making sure the “team” is dedicated to the mission together.

Savvy Fundraising Techniques for Primary/Secondary Education - Emily Farris and Josh Fertita
An examination of aligning development best practices with political savvy and grit to overcome the challenges of fundraising in primary and secondary education.
 
PR & Marketing on a Budget - Jennifer Bond
Need to market your organization, but have a limited budget? This session will showcase the fundamentals of public relations, specifically focusing on marketing initiatives on a dime. From media relations to community outreach to social media, gain valuable insight and understanding of PR campaigns that get the most bang for your buck.


SOS:  You Can't Do It All!  - 
Lucinda Flowers, Susan Mancuso, CFRE, and  Lynn Spearman
The good news: Your fundraising efforts are going gangbusters with a variety of programs and events to help you meet your goals. The bad news: You and your staff feel overwhelmed, stretched thin, and headed toward a burnout. The question: Are you using your resources effectively to get the most bang for your buck? This interactive session will explore when to consider bringing in an outsider (from volunteers to temps to experts) to help expand your capacity and grow your success.  

 
Capital Campaigns: Push the Envelope to Get Creative! - Holly Lang and Michelle Buchanan (for professionals with 8 or more years of fundraising experience)
The silent phase comes before the public phase. The campaign committee should meet every month. Eighty percent of the money comes from twenty percent of the donors. It’s true that following these tried-and-true “rules” of campaigning often produce a campaign victory. But in today’s modern world, many of the most successful initiatives are pushing the boundaries of the expected. In this discussion-oriented session, Michelle and Holly will share case studies of campaigns that required outside the box thinking to realize success. Discuss what your organization is doing that’s creative campaign – or join us to spark new ideas for your shop!

 
Why People Give-The Motivating Factors and Psychology of Giving - Brian Kish
Philanthropy etymologically means the "love of humanity." It is an emotional act that can be found in all of us—some more than others. Learn about the psychology of giving and discuss the motivating factors that drive this behavior.

Your top questions about the Fundraising Intensive Program, ANSWERED!

Posted By Nora Ellertsen, The Funding Seed, LLC, Thursday, April 28, 2016
Have you been wondering whether the Fundraising Intensive Program is right for you?
Check out the answers to these frequently asked questions.


 

1. What is the Fundraising Intensive Program?
The Fundraising Intensive Program is a eight month training program that combines group learning and individual coaching to help bring your nonprofit's fund development to the next level.

During the program, participants meet once a month for a discussion on a shared topic and receive tools and homework assignments related to that topic.  Following this, participants also receive a 90-minute individual coaching session and 30-minute follow-up phone call each month to help them to apply that topic to their own unique organization.  
 
There are two goals of the program: to help your organization to raise immediate funds, and to help you develop lasting skills and habits that allow you to raise more money for the long haul.
 
Course Curriculum:
June- Creating your Fundraising Plan
July- Telling your Story
August- Individual Donors
September- Fundraising Letters and Emails
October- Review month
November- Fundraising Events: House Parties
December- Major Donor Development
January- Staying on Track

Program description and application
2. Why do you have both group and individual sessions?
Combining group and individual learning means that participants can learn from each other in a safe, trusting environment while also getting support from a professional to trouble-shoot issues specific to their own organization. 

Program description and application

 

 

3. What are the sessions like?
The group sessions are discussion-based; there is no PowerPoint and no lecture.  Program members largely work together in small groups, doing practice exercises, reviewing case studies, and sharing lessons learned from personal experience.

The individual sessions allow program members to receive guidance and support implementing ideas from the group sessions at their own unique organizations.  The focus is on making monthly homework assignments meaningful and productive and on monitoring progress towards the goals each participant has created in their personal fundraising plan.

Program description and application
 
4. Why do you make us do homework?  I thought I was done with school!
The Fundraising Intensive Program uses the saying, "Use it or lose it."  It's not just learning about fundraising theoretically; it's about actually making real change in your nonprofit's fund development program.  The homework assignments are all practical and designed to help you truly ingrain the skills we discuss into your own actions and habits.

In addition, the program is designed to help you raise money as you go.  For example, in the month dedicated to fundraising letters and emails, the homework is to write and send a fundraising letter and email.  This means that, if you do your homework, you are actually raising money while the program is happening.

Program description and application
  

 

5. I've already been to a bunch of The Funding Seed's workshops, and it seems like a lot of the topics you cover in this program are the same.  What would I get out of the Fundraising Intensive Program that I wouldn't get from the regular workshop series?
About half of the people who have participated in The Fundraising Intensive Program's first three graduating classes have participated in one or more of The Funding Seed's regular workshops.

The Fundraising Intensive Program provides an entirely different way to learn.  Because participants receive a special individual coaching session every month, you have the opportunity to take the ideas and tools from the group session and work with a professional to help you implement them.  This added accountability means you are more likely to actually do the things you need to do to make real progress.

In addition, because the same participants meet every month, you become a part of a genuine learning community, a group of people who are comfortable sharing ideas and experiences to help everyone fundraise better.

Program description and application

 

 

6. This seems pretty expensive.  Can I justify spending the money for this program?

The Fundraising Intensive Program is an investment, both in terms of time and money.  However, the $250 per month tuition (a second member from the same organization may also participate at a 50% discount) covers more than 40 hours of group and individual coaching, which is significantly less than the cost of similar coaching outside the structure of the program.  In addition, remember that part of the intention of the program is that you will be actively working to raise funds as you go, not just spending money for something you may not ever get around to doing.

Program description and application
 
7. I'm not in New Orleans.  Can I still apply?

You don't have to be based in New Orleans to apply for this program.  However, please be aware that the sessions take place in New Orleans, so you must be able to travel to your sessions every month.

 

Program description and application

 

 

8. Bottom line: Why should I consider doing this program?
If you are ready to make a real leap forward for your nonprofit's fund development efforts, The Fundraising Intensive Program is for you.  Every nonprofit needs to know how to raise money.  Whether you're an Executive Director, development staff,  a board member, a program manager or a volunteer, having the skills to fundraise successfully and sustainably makes you an asset to your organization, and allows your nonprofit to serve your community even more effectively, making the world an even better place for the future.
