Improving Your Fundraising Health: A Preview of the Vital Signs Philanthropic Health Assessment


Become a more effective fundraising operation by assessing your philanthropic health.

To assess physical health, medical professionals mind vital signs such as body temperature or pulse rate to help you course-correct and become healthier. Similarly, what if a fundraising operation could assess its philanthropic health through philanthropic vital signs to cultivate more giving from donors and prospects?

Join us online for this free webcast recording to get an overview of the four cornerstones of philanthropic health: appreciation, affiliation, agency, and accountability. You will learn more about Jim Langley’s Vital Signs Philanthropic Health Assessment offered through Academic Impressions and how you can use this for your own philanthropic check-up. You will leave the webcast with sample questions from the assessment that offer a preview of your shop’s overall health.
