On June 9, firm President + CEO Jeffrey Byrne will be making the keynote presentation, “Sustainability through Story-Talking,” for the 2016 Nonprofit Sustainability Conference at The Keeter Center at the College of the Ozarks near Branson, Missouri.
Through real-life examples, Jeffrey will explore “Relationship Fundraising” in the 21st Century: examining donor-driven philanthropy, the emergence of non-traditional giving mechanisms and the increasing importance of tailored donor engagement. Stories of successful fundraising approaches will demonstrate how organizations can build relational trust—within the organization and with funders and peers—through donor dialogue and peer collaboration to inspire generous and unrestricted donations and major gifts through compelling narrative, funder education and organizational transparency.
Part of Drury University’s Center for Nonprofit Leadership and supported by the Roy W. Slusher Foundation, the Nonprofit Sustainability Conference is a one-day event for nonprofit professionals and leaders focused on fundraising, financial stability and growth. Jeffrey will also be teaming up with Judy Keller, Executive Vice President, and Katie Lord, Senior Consultant, for a session on Planned Giving.
