About the Webinar

We all know in order to report impact to a benefactor and inspire their continued engagement in our organizations, their gift has to be spent! Unfortunately, sometimes this first step is easier said than done. If you are struggling with unspent or underutilized funds at your organization, this is the session for you! We will provide an overview of how we tackled this issue from start to finish and share our successes, our opportunities for growth, and what we learned along the way. This session will include how to evaluate underutilized funds and create a project plan, training and working with business partners, sample outreach and metrics to track successes, and tools to make the project sustainable.

Learning Objectives

  1. Why targeting underutilized funds within your organization is important and how to identify these funds
  2. Tools to improve relationships and trust with business partners outside of Advancement
  3. Sample metrics for tracking successes and how to make project sustainable
