Barrier Breaker Learning Session 4
Volunteers and Interns: How to get the most out of them
Speaker Donna Mitchell will be talking about how to organize volunteers, tips and tricks for volunteer engagement, and how to manage interns at a nonprofit organization.
A word about our speaker: DONNA MEINDT MITCHELL founded SponsorLink in July 2012 to fill a growing need of non-profits as a resource for major corporate gifts and sponsorships. Two other areas emerged as priorities, as most non-profits don’t have the ‘band-with’ to raise major funds, citing staff capacity and effective volunteer engagement as barriers to growth especially from a fundraising perspective. Donna is known for her proprietary systems that are considered ‘best practices’ as they ‘do the work for you’ to make the most efficient use of resources and effective use of staff’s time — which she employed at non-profits like the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Join us to find out more about how you can make the best use of interns and volunteers — including your Board, to truly advance fundraising and programmatic initiatives and engender a greater commitment to your organization — freeing up staff time to ‘manage’ instead of being ‘stuck in the details’ of constantly ‘doing’.
