It’s Our Role: How Peer-to-Peer Campaigns Can Inspire, Empower, Activate

Suzanne Graney, Executive Director of Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, has a firm belief that all people want to do something good in our world, but many don’t know what to do. She believes that it’s the role—and great opportunity—of those of us in the nonprofit sector to create a path for them to fulfill this desire.

Learn how the Penn State Dance Marathon and the Four Diamonds Mini-THONs are using this philosophy to inspire, empower and activate more than 100,000 students each year to help conquer childhood cancer.

Development Wisdom: In P2P Fundraising, It’s the Secret Sauce

You could settle on being a successful P2P fundraiser. Or you could be memorable. Game-changing. Epic.

What’s the secret sauce, you ask? Is it your ability to do X—like send the perfect “thank you” note after a meeting? How about designing that winning combination of words that makes an appeal letter hum? Nope. The secret sauce is this incredible combination of emotional, social and relational intelligence we mix together and call wisdom or in this case, P2P wisdom.

Join Crouch & Associates’ Scott Koskoski, Regional Director and Performance Consultant, and Lauren Pesce, Performance Consultant, for this inspiring session, where they will be highlighting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s 50 Finest campaign.

Remember the Zac Brown Band song, “Whatever It Is?” “It” is a big thing, but they are going to teach you how to use “it” to make yourself — and your work — look amazingly good.
