Organizing a Virtual Auction

by Aly Sterling

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, many nonprofit organizations scrambled to find a solution for suddenly non-feasible fundraising efforts. Fundraising campaigns were paused and, as we're going to discuss in this guide, many fundraising events were canceled outright. These include charity auctions and galas, high-profile events that draw major donors and major dollars. They give a nonprofit's most ardent supporters the opportunity to donate by bidding on items while networking with other impactful supporters.

Making the Case to Advocacy Funders

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Fundraising for advocacy can be particularly challenging! Systemic reforms and policy change can take years to accomplish, if ever, and often depend on factors outside of your nonprofit's control—while most funders want to see meaningful progress each grant period. The pool of advocacy funders is distinctive, but the good news is that those interested in investing in advocacy typically do understand that change requires a longer timeline and are willing to award larger grants to support it. The question is: how do you find and pursue them? In this webinar, Alayna Buckner, CEO of Elevate, will do a deep dive into the nuances of how to effectively find, pursue, and win more grants for your advocacy organization. By the end of this webinar, you'll have a solid understanding of how to clarify and articulate your theory of change for advocacy in order to demonstrate your progress more clearly, how the cultivation and solicitation processes look different for advocacy-based fundraising, the difference between advocacy funders and direct service funders, and the difference between raising money for a 501(c)(3) vs. a 501(c)(4) organization. This webinar is ideal for grantwriting professionals in the advocacy space, including anyone new to fundraising and grantwriting as well as experienced grantwriting professionals looking for a refresher.


Shifting Practices, Sharing Power?

How is the U.S. philanthropic sector responding to the public health, racial justice, and economic crises of 2020? The answers to this question can be found in a new report by the Council on Foundations, Philanthropy California, and Dalberg Advisors called Shifting Practices, Sharing Power? How the U.S. Philanthropic Sector Is Responding to the 2020 Crises. Based on a survey of 250 foundation leaders and more than a dozen in-depth interviews, this report assesses how the sector is changing in three ways: resources, priorities, and internal operations.
