Cindy Miles is the Executive Director of The Nonprofit Chamber of Service. Established in 2005, more than 175 nonprofits and funders came together to discuss how they could collaborate on building strong nonprofit organizations and develop joint activities that could build the capacity of nonprofits. Sedgwick County Government provided the opportunity for a "working group" of 20 local nonprofit directors and representatives to explore the development of a nonprofit association that could assist and be a voice for the nonprofit community in Wichita. As a result of this work, the Nonprofit Chamber of Service was established.

You Got This Fundraising - S2, E4 - Marci Penner, Kansas Sampler Foundation

June 19, 2020

In this episode of You Got This- Fundraising Dawn talks with Marci Penner, co-founder and director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation.

Marci Penner is a big fan of exploring Kansas, promoting (and living) rural culture, and reframing the challenges of sustaining community into opportunities. When she and her father, Milferd Penner, researched their first Kansas guidebooks in the early 1990s, they saw a need to educate Kansans and network and support rural communities. They formed the public, non-profit Kansas Sampler Foundation in 1993 to meet those goals.

Bloomerang is donor management software that will have you building relationships with donors. https://bloomerang.co/partners/you-got-this-fundraising/

2 Donor Relationship Ideas and Remote Working

The podcast with some great examples of relationship building from California.

 

Being an entrepreneur means I have time to help many organizations optimize their fundraising systems and technology allows me to do it from a trip with my husband to California.

On our trip, two really great things happened to show me that there are examples of donor relationship building all around us.

The first one was a music festival moment where board members and volunteers were invited to dance as a group. The organization was fortunate to have a leader that understood the value of cultivating a strong family bond in the board of directors. The dance they participated in, bound them together in a way that few things could.

The second, was an invitation from a church for congregants to sign their name in the walls of the new wing of the church. Wow, what an opportunity to grow the relationship with the members of the church.

These are just a few of the examples we come across all the time. Take a moment and note the times you were brought closer to the groups you participate in. What brought you closer? When we cultivate those relationships, the donors to your organization are emotionally bound to your impact and they grow in their interest and care of the partnership they have with you.

This month, we are introducing the You Got This Fundraising Membership! Come visit us at www.dawngabel.com
