Inspire, Connect and Grow Your Fundraising Impact: Fundraising, Communication, and Project Tips and Strategies

As part one of CLCC's Land Trust Advancement Initiative Series, the focus will be on establishing the context for outreach and community engagement to help ensure our pledge of conserving the land in perpetuity.  This is a two-part training, focusing on tips and strategies that land trusts are using throughout the region and country, to inspire, connect, and grow their impact.

Specifically designed for all-volunteer and small-staffed land trusts, we will identify ways to enhance what you are doing as well as provide tips and strategies for your year-end appeal and next year’s projects and fundraising. Topics will include: tools related to communication and fundraising; building a welcoming and responsive organization, including programming ideas; establishing a rhythm of communication and fundraising; and introducing the concept of Ambassador Landscapes using fee-owned lands.
