    Throughout the day, at every break, faculty will be available to you to meet one-on-one to discuss any question you may have. We call this ParkBenching! There’s limited registration to ensure extensive 
interaction and provide maximum personal attention.

    Our commitment is to work with you during these very challenging times.  Our faculty have all faced challenges.  We understand what your organization is going through.  Together we will work through these challenges.  Between today and when we are together, we will have a clearer understanding of what we must all do to reach our greatest potential.

    Your Experience Will Be Unique

    Each Seminar in this ICG series is a combination of lecture and small group participation. Programs designed to take you through a series of strategies covering every element of major gift fundraising— from asking for the gift, Moves Management™ strategies, technology, data, and analytics.  Every step will address how we approach what is happening in fundraising today.

    Prioritizing High-Impact Strategies to Secure Your Greatest Success

    It is quite clear that difficult times emphasize the urgency and drama of compelling needs. Here’s what you need to remember. If you are not properly prepared, your fundraising program is almost certainly doomed to failure.

    In good times and bad. Is there a good time for your organization to raise money? Yes. When you are ready. That is a good time to raise money. Not one day before. These challenging times may necessitate a modified and targeted approach included in a special gift initiative, a mini-campaign or a capital campaign.
