Fundraising in Higher Ed During COVID

Fundraising during COVID has been difficult for non-profits in general, with no exception for higher education. The October AFP ECI program will specifically focus on higher education fundraising.

Dale Wright, Associate Dean for Advancement at the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign will focus on major gift fundraising with limited travel.

Julie Melton, Executive Director at the Richland Community College Foundation will discuss annual fund messaging in the time of COVID.

Mike Murray, Director of Development at Eastern Illinois University will focus on the loss of athletics and performing arts in both a fundraising and stewardship capacity.

This comprehensive overview of higher education fundraising will provide higher ed fundraising professionals an opportunity to hear new ways to reach out to donors, how to steward gifts, and what the profession might look like over the next few months.
