    Given the rapidly evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, and in an abundance of caution, VAFRE is cancelling our regularly scheduled April 7th luncheon. We are looking into the possibility of bringing the speaker in for an upcoming meeting, as we know the topic is of great interest to our membership. 

    Are all your donors and potential supporters reflected in your organization's work? Does their absence communicate a message about who and what are your organization’s values? When certain groups of individuals are always represented and others are missing in your communications, whether intentional or unintentional, it sends the message about who does and doesn’t belong. There are countless donor stories connected to diverse communities of supporters. This session will help fundraising professionals explore how to look for those stories through equity and inclusion. More specifically, participants will consider how to eliminate disparities connected to historically marginalized social identities and when addressed how they work effectively together, producing the best outcomes in fundraising.  

    1 hour CFRE credit pending.
