Fundraising for a Secular Cause: Because It Takes Money To Change the World

It takes money to scale an organization up from its seeds as a good idea into a major player with local and/or national impact. Organizing a successful conference entails similar costs. But fundraising is hard, and very few people enjoy asking others for money.

This panel will show you not only how to ask people for money, but also to understand who you should be asking in the first place! Presenters range from those serving as volunteer fundraisers for a local group, to organizers of highly successful conferences, to professional staff with responsibility for raising a million-dollar budget.

Panelists: Neil Wehneman (moderator), Amy Boyle, Nick Fish, Maria Greene, Harry Shaughnessy
