CPC Partnership Series: Midwest Playscapes

You can’t build a playground without money. Organizations that understand the fundraising landscape – and have a strategy for meeting their objectives – are typically more successful.

In this session with Midwest Playscapes, keynote speaker Jason Rodham will explore how to identify and communicate effectively with potential donors and review the strategies you can employ to execute a winning fundraising campaign. Jason is a fundraising consultant who has worked with more than 100 charities, non-profits, and social ventures across the United States and Canada. As both a consultant and in-house major gifts officer, he has raised more than $27 million in new funding from foundations, corporations, individuals, and government. Jason has significant hands-on experience in all aspects of fund development, including campaign management, prospect identification, grant writing and donor relationship development. He has worked with organizations from every sector of the non-profit marketplace, including major hospitals, national/local arts organizations, world-class conservation organizations, community-based social services agencies – and more. Prior to entering the charitable sector, Jason spent a decade as a corporate speech writer, public relations specialist, and journalist. You can learn more about his work at: www.5wfundraising.com
