Then we will focus on understanding the seven faces of philanthropy to help you learn what motivates your donors so that you can ensure you have a donor-centered plan that incorporates one-on-one donor engagement and stewardship. Finally, we’ll take time to evaluate your current development plans and work in small groups to incorporate fresh ideas as we learn from our peers.  Participants should bring a current development plan to the workshop. Don’t have a plan? We will provide you with a template to begin your work! You might consider bringing multiple people from your organization responsible for development, so you can work together to build your plan for the future.
