October Workshop – Southern Utah Training Event
“Successful Fundraising & Development: Strategies for Sustainable Nonprofits”
Presented By: Mary Migliorelli
St. George –The Southern Utah Committee of Utah Nonprofits Association’s next educational workshop will be held on Oct. 2, 2014 at DXATC from 8:00a – 12:00p. The workshop will focus on successful fundraising and development. The workshop will provide local NPO’s with information and strategies to create long term sustainability and success for their organizations. The session will be led by UNA’s Professional Development Manager, Mary Migliorelli who will be traveling from Salt Lake City. Said Migliorelli, “All successful nonprofits want to engage donors in a way that creates a lasting impact in their communities, their programs and those they serve. Our goal at UNA is to provide the tools, research, education and opportunity to help nonprofits with donor strategies and retention programs that work.”
As a state wide organization UNA offers a variety of opportunities to engage with the nonprofit community. Locally, UNA provides opportunities for nonprofits to attend training, network and collaborate to help create success and longevity for the many valued services and programs they provide to our community. This workshop is one of many educational opportunities UNA has to offer.
When: Oct. 2, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. to Noon
Where: Dixie Applied Technology Center, 1506 S Silicon Way, St George, UT 84770

Workshop Details: All nonprofit leaders have a vested interest in creating sustainable, high-impact organizations. Join us for a lively, interactive workshop about how the philanthropic landscape is changing, and how we as leaders, fundraisers, and grant writers can engage donors across our communities to create lasting impact.
We’ll map the changing landscape & see the world through each other’s eyes, for new insights about:
- thinking like a donor/investor
- what makes a successful funding proposal
- what can improve or derail donor relationships
- and what innovative strategies and tools help build sustainable nonprofits.
Advanced topics include:
- an overview of nonprofit lifecycles and capacity-building grants
- understanding the power of story to communicate impact
- connecting to new development resources from UNA and our community partners
- deciding your next steps for year-end success and 2015 priorities
Why else should you attend?
This hands-on, half-day workshop is designed for both new and seasoned professionals, to share what’s already working, and to build on your best ideas from other conferences and experience as an NPO professional. This workshop encourages networking, peer learning, cross-pollination, and implementing practical next steps to fit your organization’s unique situation. What we accomplish together will shape our future workshops and probably even spark a number of innovations and collaborations we haven’t imagined yet.
