Permission to Launch

A successful Giving Tuesday launch requires three essential parts: strong preparation, effective messaging, and a thoughtful follow-up strategy.

This Giving Tuesday, one advancement team answers the question: just how far is all the way?

This month on the RAISE Podcast:

The RAISE Podcast, hosted by EverTrue CEO & Founder Brent Grinna, is a weekly podcast that features advancement’s most innovative leaders. 

One of our favorite clips from this month’s RAISE convos comes from Joseph Kender, Senior Vice President at St. Joseph’s University.

Brent and Joe discuss how we can collectively fight back against higher ed’s bad PR by showing our audience the impact that our institutions have with stories about diseases cured, lives saved, careers built, and families changed – powered by authentic video.

Also featured this month on the RAISE Podcast: a benefiting member of the Curt Simic mentorship tree, Dana Cummings, Vice President at Franklin College. Reflections on the power of storytelling with Jean Kramer Crosby, Vice President at Ball State. And insights on recruiting and retaining diverse fundraisers, featuring Howard University’s Senior Vice President, David Bennett.

“What if I told you that you can’t plan your life, but you can make small moves each day to ensure a strong, healthy, and authentic path?”

The Development Debrief Podcast, hosted by Kathryn Van Sickle, is a podcast for professionals, thought leaders, and donors in the field of fundraising.

Kathryn kicks off November on the Development Debrief with an inspiring conversation featuring Shanna Hocking, author of the new book “One Bold Move a Day.” They talk about momentum building, dreams realized, and lifestyle decisions.
