TREC is here to support the environmental community as we all face the new challenges presented by COVID-19. See our resources and stay up to date.

Thriving in Fundraising in Extraordinary Times

We’re all struggling to feel and stay healthy right now, including our supporters. Fundraising professionals have the burden of ensuring that their organizations are financially healthy, as well, and have the necessary funds to do their work despite what’s happening in the rest of the world. Fundraising is a fairly static field, with many tried and true strategies, but some of these strategies are no longer effective or relevant in the new world of 2021. We’ll discuss strategies to support you in surviving and thriving in your fundraising work this year, as well as in your experience of doing this demanding, yet fulfilling, work.
