Theory behind the session

  • Fundraising professionals and communications professionals sometimes find themselves confused or at odds over various aspects of engaging an organization’s constituents
  • We believe that collaboration is the key to strong fundraising and will ultimately help both fundraisers and communicators to better perform and achieve an organization’s mission

Theory in action

Teams can better work together by:

  • Settling debates by focusing on audiences
  • Creating purpose statements for each department
  • Using shared editorial or marketing calendars to plan across departments
