You have worked with a top-notch fundraising consultant… Your feasibility study showed your donors open and interested in your major donor or capital campaign plans… You are ready to launch the quiet phase of your campaign with your most important major donors. But when you do, your case falls flat—and no one is sure why. A good case balances reason with emotion, with the right amount of energy thrown in for good measure. In this presentation Jennie Winton from Mission Minded will show you how to create a case that has all the right ingredients. You will learn why need alone will not ensure campaign support and how to use emotion to draw your donors into an appeal that is irresistible.



Jennie Winton is a 25-year marketing veteran sought for her expertise in branding and positioning nonprofit organizations. Since co-founding Mission Minded in 2002, Jennie has served as a strategic advisor for over 150 nonprofit organizations, and has inspired hundreds more as a nationally sought lecturer. With gifts in the areas of brand strategy, messaging, and fundraising, Jennie excels at helping senior nonprofit leaders clarify how they talk about their work, which leads to greater organizational stability, increased revenues, and an expanded ability to deliver on the mission of the organization.
