OCT 10: Fundraising inspiration and strategies from Marshall Howard

Does asking for funding make you uncomfortable? Do you need new inspiration to remember why you got into fundraising in the first place? Are you an executive director, development professional, board member or volunteer?

Marshall Howard will be in Austin on Oct. 10 to share his fundraising techniques.

ACC’s Center for Community Based and Nonprofit Organizations is bringing Marshall Howard, author of “Let’s Have Lunch Together,” to Austin to lead two fundraising seminars.

Howard speaks across the country, teaching thousands of staff and board leaders how to raise a lot more money, easier and quicker, through the power of relationship-centered leadership.

Leaders lead, not push.  They engage the right people in the right way. Leaders create traction and build buy-in. Nonprofit leaders create partnerships that continually raise lots of money, year after year.

This is a great opportunity to spend a day investing in your fundraising skills – just when you need it the most! (Get pumped for end-of-year fundraising, y’all.)
