Let's be honest. There are always more fundraising ideas and projects in a year than there are hours to get the work done. However, you can increase the outputs, outcomes, and impact of your fundraising team by utilizing an Agile mindset.

Scrum is a decision-making framework for fundraising teams to help increase the efficiency of your work - whether talking about writing grant applications, managing drafts of appeal letters, or planning and implementing a special event.

In this on-demand webinar you will learn how to:

  • Increase the impact of your fundraising efforts
  • Increase the happiness of your fundraising team
  • Use Scrum to help create your fundraising plan
  • Manage large fundraising projects using Scrum
