The Suncoast Chapter purchased selections from the AFP Audio Conference/Webinar Series that are available for member use by request. The recorded conferences now available have taken place in 2011, and more will be made available as they are recorded and received throughout June of 2012.
How it Works
The pre-recorded webinars are on CD-ROM and may be “checked out” from the existing collection with the expectation they will be issued and returned at our monthly meetings. The check-out period is one-month; the expectation is that the CD-ROM will be returned at the following meeting to allow for scheduling of the next request.
To make a request, email Ruth Bannhard.

How to Raise More by Selling your Impact
Why does it cost nonprofits $20 for every $100 raised, when companies spend $4 for every $100 raised? The answer is that we may well be raising money from the wrong people. Most nonprofits focus on selling the "psychic benefits" of our work to donors and foundations who have no direct stake in our outcomes. Today, we need to offer more than “feel good” if we want to create leverage. This webinar teaches nonprofits how to convert their good work into high value outcomes and how to identify a new set of stakeholders who directly value and are willing to pay for those outcomes.

Raising More Money from Your Business Community
Although corporations and businesses contribute just over 4% of all philanthropic dollars (over $14 Billion in 2009) in the United States, much more is given through gifts in kind, corporate sponsorships, and through the personal donations of individual corporate leaders. And, in a typical capital campaign, businesses often provide a much more significant percentage of the overall goal. However many nonprofits fail to touch their local business community for a variety of reasons. In this webinar, we will discuss how to approach corporate leaders, how to motivate them to become involved in your organization, and how to develop a corporate appeal.

Donor Centered Planned Gift Marketing
This seminar will define what "donor-centered" planned gift marketing is and explain why it is superior to traditional marketing. Participants will evaluate their organization's planned giving potential so that they can determine whether or not they are realizing their full potential and, if not, to more easily justify the investment of resources into gift planning efforts. This session will also review the five stages of successful donorcentered planned gift marketing. Participants will learn simple tips for how to identify planned giving prospects; easy to implement ideas to educate and cultivate potential supporters; useful techniques for how to more effectively ask for more gifts in-person, by mail, and even by telephone; and practical tips on how to incorporate good stewardship into the gift development process. By adopting donor-centered techniques, development professionals will be able to more easily raise more money while making more donors even happier.

Building a Major Gifts Program through Integrated Solicitations
A successful organization provides its donors with many opportunities to support its mission, and solicits them multiple times each year through multiple channels (staff, board, volunteers, direct mail, e-mail, etc). However, donors can easily become confused and burned out by uncoordinated and “competing” solicitations for memberships, special event sponsorships, auxiliary dues, capital campaigns, annual fund, planned giving society, etc. One of the greatest challenges, and therefore opportunities, in establishing or growing a major gifts program is to integrate, or "blend," these solicitations into one coherent donor strategy and solicitation. In this webinar we will discuss how to do so, which will result in more meaningful philanthropic discussions with our major gift donors and prospects, and greater support for our organizations’ mission.
