Category: Coffee & Conversations

Were you inspired by the energy at the Forum on Strategic Fundraising around culture and community? Come continue the conversation at the next Coffee & Conversations. 

We'll be exploring how to create a workplace environment that promotes inclusivity and how to support one another in preventing and dealing with difficult situations – both internally and with your donors. We'll also be sharing some tips for all frontline fundraisers and managers on how to manage donor interactions safely.


Coffee & Conversations

Do you like small groups having deep discussions? Then Coffee & Conversations is the program series for you! This is a new program series we are trying in 2018 that is specifically designed to foster in-depth conversations around trending topics in our sector. The conversation for June 19 will be announced soon. 


Registration Fees

Members and Non-members: $5.00

In order to facilitate a good group discussion, this event is limited to 15 attendees. Pre-registration is required, as attendees will receive an article or paper to read in advance.


Program Summary 

Start your work day feeling inspired, energized, and connected! Coffee & Conversations is a facilitated discussion about the triumphs, challenges, and questions we face in our work as fundraisers. At each session we’ll explore something different: current events in the sector, board engagement, addressing and preventing burn out, strategies for making our fundraising accessible and inclusive, and more.

Before the Conversation, your facilitator will email you a short article or paper to read. At your Conversation, your facilitator will start things off with some discussion questions about the reading material, but where the Conversation goes is up to you and your peers!

While the topic of each Coffee & Conversations session will be different, the objectives of each Conversation are:

  1. Facilitate networking and build community among fundraisers in our region.
  2. Share and build knowledge through the cohort learning model.
  3. Provide fundraisers an opportunity to receive support and offer support to each other.

 Intended Audience

Coffee & Conversations are designed for individuals of any background or experience level.
