Reputation Matters

a free communications class at the Loeb School

Presented by: Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications

More than ever, reputation is the currency of the realm. But how is reputation created?

Reputation is not claimed--it is bestowed by the people and organizations that rely on it to meet their needs or to make them successful. It is earned over time through consistency in actions, quality in products, services and solutions that unite to consistently earn the trust of stakeholders. This class will provide an overview and framework of the factors that lead to an organization, and its people, being viewed as excelling in reputation. The instructor, Clark Dumont, M.S., APR, is a communications leader in FORTUNE 500 companies spanning the Health Care, Aerospace & Defense and Hospitality & Entertainment sectors. 


Date: Thursday, February 17, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Adaptive Fundraising Cohort Experience

8-week fundraising course on adaptive fundraising

Presented by: Wright Collective

With the philanthropic landscape shifting on an almost daily basis, nonprofit professionals need to be equipped with the creativity, versatility, and vision to achieve their fundraising goals.


At Wright Collective, we know this to be incredibly important. We’ve supported organizations just like yours during and after many crises. From working with nonprofits in New York and New Jersey when Hurricane Sandy struck to supporting West African NGOs as they rebuilt after the Ebola crisis, we know it takes out-of-the-box ideas, decisiveness, bravery, and a certain level of tech-savviness to ensure fundraising success. And, we’ve learned a ton over the last year as we’ve navigated racial injustice and Covid-19 with our colleagues.  


That's why we run our cohort on 'Adaptive Fundraising’' as a community-driven program where we teach, facilitate, and guide development professionals together around a common goal: creating structures that will raise the resources necessary to achieve mission fulfillment during any time of transition, frustration, or crisis.

This program will guide you to success over the course of 4 bi-weekly sessions with our team of seasoned development consultants and with guest appearances from a few key influencers in the philanthropic sector.  

The course is ideal for:

  • Nonprofit Professionals 

  • Development Directors 

  • Executive Directors 

  • Board Chairs


And you will recieve: 

A comprehensive toolkit on how to pivot fundraising plans over time
Scripts and draft emails for communicating with your funders during and after a crisis
Access to (2) case studies from organizations that have fundraised successfully during the pandemic 
Access to a network of over 30 other seasoned development professionals
(3) personal, monthly 30-minute sessions with a Wright Collective consultant to discuss the exact needs of your organization
Access to an internal alumni network for ongoing collaboration

Meet the Coach:

Date: Friday, March 18, 2022 - 12:00pm to Friday, April 29, 2022 - 12:00pm
Location: Virtual - Zoom
