Successful fundraising initiatives are rarely staffed completely by your internal team. You need to expand your circle to include volunteers and champions. These wonderful people are an army of authentic, enthusiastic voices and are your secret weapon in extending your influence and voicing gratitude!

In this webinar, we’ll:

  • Uncover channels for building your champion base
  • Cover different strategies to empower your champions
  • Review the components of a toolkit to use as the foundation for preparing your Champions to spread the word
