The Silent Phase of Fundraising with Katie Novak of Katie Novak Cooperative Coaching
September 29, 12 pm
In the start-up co-op world, the “silent phase” of our fundraising efforts – the contributions committed BEFORE the capital campaign goes public – is often not talked about in much detail. Yet success in the “silent phase” is a reliable indicator of overall fundraising success. So, let’s talk about it! Fundraising expert Katie Novak will discuss details of the silent phase and how to know if your co-op is ready to start your fundraising efforts.
