The Dynamic Duo: Partnering with Your Executive to Maximize Fundraising Success

July 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


About the Webinar

The relationship between the CDO and CEO is so important when it comes to philanthropy and philanthropic revenue. When the CEO is not engaged in philanthropy, there are usually major challenges with the fundraising enterprise and Board engagement. When the CEO is engaged in fundraising, and the CDO is partnered properly with that individual, the possibilities are endless. The dynamic duo of CEO and CDO partnering together to elevate fundraising and build the culture of philanthropy throughout the institutional is the ideal scenario. Join this engaging discussion around the ways the development professional can more effectively engage and partner with the organization’s CEO in fundraising. The discussion will also offer ways to overcome some of the natural resistance to fundraising engagement that exists for many CEOs.
