GP Talks: The Future of Fundraising Events

The world has changed. Events and galas, a major source of fundraising for non-profits, have been cancelled leaving organizations wondering what to do.

We’ve assembled a panel of leaders from notable non-profits to discuss the current situation, how they communicate with their sponsors and donors, ways they can continue fundraising efforts, and if and how they will have in-person events in the future.

The panel:

  • Aliza Ameer – Alzheimer’s Association, Director of Relationship Events

  • Stephanie Astic – Astic Productions Founder, President and Chief Development Strategist

  • Bryant Bradshaw – City Parks Foundation, Director of Individual Giving and Special Events

  • Abigail DeAtley – Planned Parenthood, Vice President of Individual Giving and Events

  • Tamar C. Podell – Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Chief Development Officer

  • Brian Ricklin – Creative Art Works, Executive Director and CEO

Moderated by Linda Abbey, Great Performances, Executive Vice President
