We had an amazing time gathering non-profit leaders from around the country to participate in a panel discussion about how funders approach grant-making, grantee relationships and their views on marketing and fundraising. This incredible panel was lead by Derrick Feldmann, Managing Partner at Influence|SG, Kelly Hackett, Managing Director – Head of Family Office Services Division at Tectonic Advisors, and Kathleen W. Buechel, Executive Director at the Benter Foundation. This online presentation is part of Festival of Children Foundation’s Executive Training Seminar series that delivers knowledge-building and skills sets vital for non-profit leadership to continue adapting to an evolving fundraising landscape. Together, dreams are possible 🎠
On December 3rd, a group of voluntary fundraisers will go around and around 50 times on the South Coast Plaza carousel to help CHOC Glass Slipper Guild and CHOC Foundation raise funds for the Thompson Autism and Neurodevelopment Center at CHOC.
