WARRENSBURG — A workshop aimed at helping nonprofit organizations, community organizations and churches build relationships with potential donors will be offered Thursday at the University of Central Missouri.
The Artful Askers Workshop, entitled “Building Relationships with Funders, Resources and Donors, ” will run 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the UCM StartUp Center, 117 E. Hunt St. Trainer Bob Vickers, of the Johnson County United Way, will provide technical assistance for capacity-building, fund development and non-profit sustainability.
The workshop will cover the psychology of giving, getting ready to receive, sharing a vision in writing, and determining the right time to ask the right people for the right things. Participants also will learn about the value of tracking and utilizing volunteer hours, access to free items, the power of a thank you note, and following up, whether rejected or approved, in building relationships with supporters and donors.
Pre-registration for the workshop is required at BobVickers.UPCsites.com, as seating is limited. A registration fee of $49 covers print materials, a CD of templates, sample proposals and resumes, drinks, snacks and lunch.
