Workshop opportunity: Engage your donors with style!


By Dr. Pressley Rankin

The Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at City University of Seattle is presenting TWO opportunities as a kick off to the Institute!

ENGAGE YOUR DONORS WITH (SOCIAL) STYLE! Attend our workshop on Wednesday, May 31 at 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at City University of Seattle downtown

Have you ever wondered about your social style?  Are you a driver? Or are you more analytical?  Perhaps you might be expressive, or amiable.  It is possible that you might have different styles at different times.

In this workshop we will explore four social styles and how to apply these styles when approaching donors. We’ll also look at how to be adaptive and versatile when working with donors, board members, and others.

In addition to looking at your personal social styles, we will also discuss how to evaluate the style of your donors and then apply that information to make deeper and stronger connections.  For example, is your donor analytical?  Then it is not a good idea to rush them in making decisions.  They need more time to think about things and will need data to help them make up their minds.

It is the intersection between your style and others that we will be discussing in depth at this workshop. All this and more will be explored!

The Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at City University of Seattle is proud to offer this workshop based on the T. Denny Sanford’s vision.
