2017 APC Summer Forum Recap

M. Gale & Associate’s President and CEO, Missy Gale, attended the Association of Philanthropic Counsel’s Summer Forum in St. Louis last month, and had some great takeaways from the sessions!


“How to Tell Your Nonprofit’s Story in a 140-Character World,” presented by Mary Ann Dersch of 501creative, focused on how to make your message concise, yet effective. Mary Ann’s key point was that your mission is NOT a marketing message! 


“How is the Philanthropy of American Families Changing Over Time? How is it Likely to Change in the Trump Administration?” was an incredibly timely topic, with the recent release of the 2016 Giving USA data. Dr. Una Osili of The Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University shared great examples of what we mean when we suggest that nonprofits should be thought leaders! Learnings from the 2016 political season showed nonprofits seizing opportunities to comment on issues that were being debated by candidates and using their own cases for support. Including easily identifiable giving opportunities resulted in an outpouring of support and gifts. Key point: listen and respond with your case in a way that invokes action! Read more of Dr. Osili’s insights in this recent article from Philanthropy News Digest.

Sustainers in Focus – The real value of giving programs: online, monthly, and annual gifts.

Description: Annual giving programs take time, energy and resources to create and sustain. Many nonprofit execs find themselves questioning the ROI for giving programs.  This month we’ve got sustainers in focus — who are they, how do we acquire and keep them and what we should be doing to deepen the relationship between these loyal givers and our organizations.  We’ll take a look at some of the latest statistics on donor retention and giving program ROI, as well as share best practices on how a giving program fits into your overall development plan.
