Our nonprofits’ networks are often larger and more complex than we might realize, and we often return to the same usual suspects for support. Even when think we’ve exhausted every lead for resource development, we must remember that the Memphis area is comprised of more than a million potential donors, collaborators, and board members. Your new collaborator, donor, volunteer, board member, or advocate could be only a few degrees of separation away. If we don’t clearly map our networks, we’re leaving money on the table and losing more time and energy than we should.
This fast-paced design lab will explore network mapping, a process of visually diagramming your prospects and opportunities. By the end of the session, you’ll leave with a completed network map and an organizational action plan that will streamline your recruitment processes and target your untapped stakeholders.
By the end of the session, participants will:
1) Be able to utilize network mapping as a strategy for increased fundraising and board recruitment
2) Identify key partners or constituents for potential collaboration and engagement
3) Leave with an implementation plan for organizational action
This event is a good fit for: Fundraising professionals, executive directors, program directors
