NCPC 2019 Quarterly Program March 29 Workshops & Luncheon

WORKSHOPS – Attendees select one of two options
Option 1: Cultivating Donors: Inspiring the Ultimate Relationship
Audience: New to experienced development staff, board members and volunteers
Many think fundraising is about asking people for money, but it’s so much more. This workshop will provide a new paradigm that replaces fear with joy in fundraising.
Presenter: Liz Sheahan, Vice President of Development, Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and North County Food Bank
Liz oversees all development initiatives for the Food Bank, providing food to 370,000 San Diegans every month. She has worked in hunger relief since 2006 – originally in Wausau, Wisconsin, and then with Society of St. Andrew, a national gleaning organization. She joined the San Diego Food Bank in 2015.
Liz earned a BS in Social Work from Augsburg College in Minneapolis and a master’s degree in Philanthropy & Development from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.

Option 2: Organizations that Inspire Generous Gifts
Audience: Mid to Senior level development professionals

Prior to arriving in La Jolla, she enjoyed a long career in development serving the University of Hawai’i Foundation, Stanford University, Harvard University and Cornell University. The subject that has most interested her in her work is philanthropic motivation; what motivates individuals to make very generous gifts and how can we shape our institutions and practices to inspire and accept this generosity? She chairs CASE’s long-standing conference on this subject “Inspiring the Largest Gifts of a Lifetime.” Rebecca earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature and a master’s degree in theology at Boston University.
