Federation Holds First Executive Roundtable
A dozen member agency Executive Directors participated in the Federation’s first ever Executive Roundtable for Individual Fundraising on November 15, 2007. The purpose of the Roundtable was to encourage participating agencies in developing individual fundraising activities to compliment their regular development efforts. The session examined the advantages in developing an individual donor base, the rationale and strength for individual giving, and strategies for conducting a face-to-face major donor campaign. Interested agency executive directors were encouraged to continue participation in the roundtable, facilitated by the Federation, as an on-going network for mutual support, experience sharing, and exchange of best practices, while each pilot its own individual donor fundraising campaign. The Federation will also coach each participating agency in more technical and logistic details throughout its campaign period.
