2022-23 United Way–Dini Spheris Development Workshop Series
2022-23 United Way–Dini Spheris Development Workshop Series
Multiple dates between September 13, 2022 and March 07, 2023

Philanthropy and giving shape our lives. Just in the last few years, extraordinary generosity has provided life-saving food and resources, supported our healthcare workers, funded research to find treatment and vaccine options for the COVID-19 pandemic, lifted our spirits with artistic performances, educated our neighbors, and sustained our spiritual, mental and emotional health.


Capturing this spirit of giving and telling the story of your mission is fundamental for every development program. And as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have learned many lessons about giving and fundraising in a hybrid world.


Whether you’re just starting out, looking to boost or pivot your fundraising program or preparing to raise millions for transformational plans, this six-session series will provide practical tools to raise more money in today’s environment. In each of these sessions, staff from Dini Spheris will explore the topics, sharing our experiences and knowledge from over 50 years of partnering with nonprofits.


To get the most out of this series, we encourage registrants to enroll in all six sessions, though each course may be taken individually. Registrants will be given online access to a development assessment and the opportunity to visit with a member of the Dini Spheris team in a 30-minute session.

Committed volunteers play an active role in shaping an organization’s fundraising. With the right people in the right roles, donor-centered fundraising is not only possible, it thrives.

Often called the “donor cycle,” the process of establishing and measuring fundraising activities has four fundamental phases: identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship. This final session focuses on prospect identification methodologies, building relationships, asking for the gift, and managing and maintaining relationships.
