Pivot Your Fundraising: Go Past Disruption and Into Action

Add to Outlook Calendar

C&A PivotLeading an organization out of any type of unexpected disruption requires aligned, cohesive thinking by the leadership team as well as clear and concise direction and strong tactical approaches. Cramer & Associates’ Pivot Plan™ helps nonprofits shape a collaborative mindset by breaking down silos and identifying innovative new approaches to fulfilling their mission.

The Pivot Plan revolves around five “pivot gears” that are at the heart of every nonprofit: programs and services, leadership, finance, fundraising, and marketing & communications. At the core of the plan is the understanding that mission fulfillment is the number one priority as these gears must work together in sync to create a path forward during times of crisis.

As a participant of the Pivot Plan, your organization will benefit from the following:

  • Creating a cohesive plan forward, past disruption and into action
  • Focusing and syncing all the “gears” on mission fulfillment to ensure financial sustainability
  • Removing barriers and tearing down silos, which typically exist in nonprofit organizations
  • Providing Board members and leadership a cultivation tool, which may be leveraged with stakeholders 

Regardless of the size of your organization, participants will have the tools necessary to implement the planning process and ensure your organization moves forward with intention and confidence.

AFPNEO Chapter’s Pledge to Diversity Inclusion, Equity and Access

Our pledge is to be a welcoming Chapter and abide to the Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Access (IDEA) policies and procedures set forth by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

  • Recognize others as different but equal.
  • Respect and have empathy for all.
  • Trust and expect integrity that facilitates the integration of different and multiple voices in organizational discourse.
  • Demonstrate appreciation and respect for different voices through actively listening, being open to disparate viewpoints and opinions, and facilitating dialogues among the diverse groups.
  • Practice and encourage transparent communication in all interactions.
  • Develop participative decision making, problem solving, and team capabilities.
  • Explore potential underlying, unquestioned assumptions that interfere with inclusiveness and unconscious bias.
  • Address unconscious bias in fundraising through continuous education for professional fundraisers.

Our role in support and resources is to actively encourage and promote the contribution of all, provide training and resources to empower our members with tools to intentionally raise consciousness of unconscious bias, and abolish systemic racism through our action and service as professional fundraisers.
