The Orcas Island Community Foundation is hosting a fundraising workshop on May 8 with Susan Howlett from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Parish Hall. It will be a full day of fundraising skills building.
Howlett has been helping organizations thrive since 1975. Her consulting has helped hundreds of groups clarify their missions and goals, create plans, and raise money from every type of source – joyfully! She offers simple, low-cost solutions that are easy to implement with the resources you have on hand. And she always brings chocolate.
Howlett’s practical solutions to recurring problems faced by boards and staff have earned acclaim among grassroots organizations, major institutions, grantors and businesses alike. The most common refrain heard after one of her consulting sessions, retreats or classes is, “Now that makes sense. We can do that!”
The cost is $25 per participant and includes lunch. Seating is limited to 50. Reserve your seat by sending in a check or paying online. OICF will be polling attendees ahead of the event to gather hot topic issues to include on the agenda. Due to the limited space, they ask that each organization send no more than three participants.
