Create A Fundraising Team at Your Organization

May 10th, 2017
8am Networking
8:30am Program
NHC Arboretum 6206 Oleander Dr Wilmington
How many times have we heard a fundraising colleague say, "The people that I work with have no idea what I do!" Or, "I wish that they could understand that my work is more than going to lunch or planning events."

Come and listen to an important conversation between your colleagues and their co-workers about how they created a culture of philanthropy in their organization.

Director of Development Vann Pearsall and Executive Director Camilla Herlevich from the NC Coastal Land Trust have planned many "frolics" in their six years together. Executive Director JC Skane and Construction Manager Tom Burns work together at WARM (Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, Inc.) and Tom is in charge of the implementation of all rebuilding projects. "Because Tom works with volunteers who are often donors, too," said Skane "it is critical that he understand how donations fuel our mission."
