Operation Rubber Tree

Thursday, January 26 | 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. | Hotel Captain Cook


Facilitator: Tammy Zonker

Just as the proverbial growth in the right environment, philanthropy can also experience transformational growth with the right conditions, pruning and cultivation. This deep-dive  session will guide participants through a case study of a three-year philanthropy operations turnaround, which resulted in 300% growth in net contributions in just 36 months. Participants will walk away with tools and strategies for maximizing their philanthropy efforts and attracting individual, corporate and foundation investment. 

About Tammy:

Picture of Tammy ZonkerAfter 15 years of providing consulting services and fundraising training to nonprofit organizations across the U.S., I felt a calling to return to direct, hands-on fundraising in 2008 in one of the most challenging economies in the U.S. - Detroit, Michigan. The purpose of Fundraising Transformed is to share my fundraising experiences, observations, and strategies towards helping you create, sustain and transform your nonprofit organization's fundraising results in a measurable and meaningful way, and ultimately those you serve through your mission.
