AFG Continuing Education Dialed-In Webinar Series
Wednesday, March 17, 2021 1:00 PM – ET

Developing a Grants Strategy in 2021 (What Now?): During the time of COVID-19, many organizations are trying to figure out how to fundraise, and whether they need to change their approaches. For those who are interested in pursuing grants as part of their fundraising strategy, we’ll explore what that means and how you can be best prepared. Even those who are successful grant seekers, it is important to understand the trends in the philanthropic sector and how funders are adapting to the “new normal” in the area of grantmaking.

AFG Members be sure to register for the AFG's GET DIALED-IN Webinar - "Move4Her"

After 10 years of hosting a signature National Race to End Women's Cancer fundraiser in Washington, D.C., COVID-19 forced the Foundation for Women's Cancer to rethink how it would host an annual critical fundraising event that would happen virtually, but still felt like the community was doing something meaningful and truly together. With a fresh piece of paper and no box to work in, Move4Her was born. In this session, join Pam Speer Lewis, Chief Development Officer of the Foundation for Women's Cancer, to hear how the event was conceived, produced and measured, as well as how industry sponsors and the community responded to the enormous change.

Presenter: Pam Speer Lewis, Chief Development Officer, Foundation for Women's Cancer

Virtual Walk/Run-FUNdraising
Learn how to make it all fall (or walk or run) into place. During this webinar, we’ll talk about a key ingredient to raising money – having FUN! We’ll demonstrate how one organization successfully pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic and held a Virtual 5K Walk/Run FUNdraiser instead of their annual in-person fundraising events. We’ll walk you through all of the do’s and don’ts, take you through the action steps to pull off a successful Virtual Walk/Run event, and share our winning story.

Presenters:
Nancy J. Minghetti, Executive Director, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
Beverly M. Ryan, Director of Development, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
