Speed Networking & Summer Social for Nonprofits!
June 19 @ 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.Free
Join us this June 19 for a great way to share info about your nonprofit… get to know your nonprofit colleagues better… and to look for collaborative partners!
Instead of an instructor led session, this month we’re mixing it up, speed dating style — for a fun session that’s all about you, and packed with purpose (plus your positioning statement!)
Who Should Attend:
To make this a success, bring a colleague!
THIS is definitely a session to share with a dedicated board member or volunteer, or to bring a staffer who’s new to the event.
What to Expect:
Expect to get about 3 – 4 minutes with each nonprofit “date” before the bell rings and you move on to the next person! This is your chance to practice your pitch, to perfect a positioning statement that truly sets you apart from similar organizations…. and to look for partners!
How to Prep for the Event:
Practice summarizing your organization in a strong one or two sentence description – name of the org, who you help, why you’re needed in the community. (This is a mini version of your Mission Statement and/or Elevator Pitch.)
Prep your Positioning Statement!
In the May SIP at NLI class, we explored how the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy defines a Positioning Statement, and why it matters so much. **This is a pressure-free chance to try it out on colleagues, and get some feedback from your peers!**
If you weren’t with us in May for the “Vital Tools for Fundraising Success” class, here’s a reminder of what a Positioning Statement is, and is not:
“Your Positioning Statement is the marketing strategy of differentiating your organization in the minds of prospects and donors; it determines your niche—the distinctive role your organization plays based on its unique abilities. It is what sets your organization apart from others who may offer similar services. A positioning statement is not the same thing as mission statement.”
So join us with thoughts on who might be a great partner for you, either for a key event, something year-round, etc… Think about how you could leverage the power of collaboration… if you found the RIGHT partner!
Register today for this FREE event and bring a guest.
