The Ask Podcast Panel
Thursday, May 16
8:00AM - 9:15AM
We are delighted that KCI will again be live-recording an episode of its podcast The Ask during the Thursday Breakfast Plenary. Hosted by Nicole Nakoneshny, Partner and Lead, Knowledge + Insights at KCI, this year’s panel will focus on the ever-important, but often overlooked, topic of how to best involve volunteers in our work.
As one of the most powerful tools that foundations have to advance their fundraising ambitions, volunteer engagement is critical to success. And yet, finding and attracting senior level volunteers is becoming increasingly challenging, and once volunteers are involved, it can be hard to know how best to work with them. The panel will explore the trends and best practices in engaging volunteers, both board and fundraising, in fundraising. The speakers will sharing tips and anecdotes from their experiences.
Nicole will be joined by panelists Louise Aspin, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Offer at Toronto General and Western Hospital Foundation and Ken Mayhew, President & CEO of William Osler Health System Foundation along with a volunteer from each of their foundations.
How do I find and attract volunteer leadership? What is the role of the fundraising volunteer today? Am I kidding myself to think my board will engage in fundraising? What do volunteers want from staff? To hear answers to these questions and more, be sure to attend Convene Canada 2019!
