Greetings from quarantine…
Hopefully, you’re getting used to this new normal, and staying happy and healthy.
We are here to help while you’re adjusting to working remotely and learning how to tackle new challenges associated with your role during this crisis.
Our team has been hard at work creating a remote work resource library to support our friends in advancement, including live Q&As (don’t worry, we have recordings!), examples from other institutions, role-based advice, and so much more.
Check out our remote work resource library and keep checking back for more. Here’s what to expect:
Over the last few weeks, we’ve connected with industry leaders like Josh Newton of Emory University and Lynne Wester, Donor Relations Guru. We’ve talked about how prospect development and research should handle a stock market in flux with Julie Craig of K-State and Dan Stevens of Windfall Data.
We chatted with Josh Lassiter, Associate Director of Development at Baylor University about life as a remote gift officer and Chris Campbell, Senior AVP of Information Strategy at the Oklahoma State University Foundation about how advancement services can support both the team and alumni in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On top of all those incredible Q&As, we’ve compiled advice for advancement services, prospect development and researchers, frontline fundraisers, annual giving, alumni relations, fundraisers at medical centers, and more.
Interviews with industry professionals.
Wondering what your peers at other institutions are up to during the crisis?
Well, we have that too. We’ve interviewed Eric Holderness of K-State, Heather Kopec of Virginia Tech, Ashley Budd of Cornell University, Angela Wimmer of University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and Susan Armacost of the University of Memphis.
They’ve provided countless ideas, insights, and guidance for how to handle the COVID-19 crisis. Check back for more as they’re posted.
We’re in the lucky position to be able to talk to all sorts of people at institutions across the country and hear the creative ideas and initiatives they’re undertaking during the COVID-19 crisis. And we’re sharing it with you.
In addition to the interviews and live Q&As above, we’ve compiled some of our favorite ideas into quick-hit articles chock full of ideas. Here are some of the ways universities are supporting students during this time, how advancement leaders are supporting the shift to virtual visits, and stewardship ideas for building donor relationships while remaining sensitive to the COVID-19 crisis.
Here’s EverTrue’s take on the novel coronavirus pandemic and its impact on advancement: We don’t have all the answers, but we’re going to learn from each other and share best practices for remote fundraising, working from home, and handling uncertainty.
