Changing Hearts and Changing Minds:  Inspiring Principal Giving

Sept 17-18, 2020 | 2-Day Workshop

Take a walk with us.  Appreciative Philanthropy is pleased to partner with Advancement Resources to offer Changing Hearts and Changing Minds:  Inspiring Principal Giving.  Take a walk with Jim Hodge and Scott Arthur as they share the essential shifts they drove at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus to inspire greater philanthropy, invigorate staff, and transform how the organization thinks and works -- especially in principal and major giving. Ideal for development leaders, principal gift professionals, and major gift professionals who aspire to lift benefactors to higher levels, this two day learning experience will explore the skills necessary to thrive at a time of challenge and change in philanthropy.  Attendees will leave with a renewed sense of purpose, as well as tools and collateral material that will make the work of qualitative, relationship-based philanthropy both accessible and impactful. Check out the syllabus here.
