HOW AND WHY TO USE DATA FOR MAJOR GIFTS 

*RESCHEDULED: MONDAY, JUNE 25, 2018 | 1 P.M. ET

Ryan Woroniecki, VP of Strategic Partnerships | DonorSearch 

In this exciting continuing education webinar, we’ll walk through important data elements for successful outreach to donors and members. It can be tough to pick up the phone and call a stranger, but it’s easier when you can share the bond of brotherhood or sisterhood. After sitting in on this session, you’ll know which brother or sister may be GRATEFUL you called. You will learn some recent trends from this year’s Giving USA Report, understand the value of a quick phone call, and make sure you’re calling people who can give generous gifts.



GOVERNMENT RELATIONS: THE ROLE EVERYONE HAS IN PRESERVING THE
FRATERNITY AND SORORITY EXPERIENCE

THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2018

Julie Burkhard, Chief Legislative Officer | North-American Interfraternity Conference 
The NIC and the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) have joint legislative priorities that comprise government relations and advocacy efforts on behalf of fraternities and sororities. Government relations issues often impact our foundations; this webinar will be especially beneficial for awareness and understanding of current efforts or issues that may arise while Foundation boards or staffs are fundraising on behalf of your fraternal organization. Julie will review:

    • Legislative priorities that encompass the primary issues that NIC and NPC advocate for on a
      federal and state level
    • Sources of funding that support advocacy initiatives
    • Three ways in which Foundation staffs and boards can be involved

ANNUAL GIVING: LESSONS LEARNED AT GREEK RETREAT

APRIL 2018

This webinar covers highlights from the NICF’s 2018 Greek Retreat, an educational program for new and mid-career annual giving professionals. The educational areas of focus within annual giving this year were direct mail, digital marketing and stewardship. After the program, attendees were surveyed about which elements they felt to be most valuable from their time at Greek Retreat, and those key points of information and takeaways were used to create the presentation.
