Adapting to Rapidly Changing Philanthropic Realities

Advancement and fundraising professionals dedicate their entire profession to building sustainable partnerships.  They cultivate relationships and facilitate the time, talents, and treasure of others to benefit your programs and your students. But recently, philanthropic behavior has significantly changed. That’s why so many traditional fundraising strategies and tactics no longer work.

Employers, community partners and donors are unsatisfied with transactional giving and one-and-done interactions. They want to do more than give to organizations; they want to make significant, sustainable difference. Join professional fundraiser Jim Langley as he demonstrates how organizations can move from chasing gifts/donations to building meaningful philanthropic partnerships. Avoid the faltering fundraising practices of the past. Learn effective philanthropic facilitation that will allow you to build stronger, more enduring communities of shared purpose.

Employer Partnerships

With tight labor markets, rising education costs, and a widening skills gap, educational institutions and employers have every reason to partner together. Our schools and colleges want to understand, and respond to, local workforce needs more than ever before. Simply convening local industry representatives for compliance is woefully insufficient. Thankfully we know what effective partnerships look like and how to sustain them.


Each masterclass in Employer Partnerships covers a vitally important element about the practicalities and challenges of partnership implementation. Learn how we can engage in meaningful collaborations, innovate new structures, and blur the walls of our classroom so that every learner and local partner benefits.

“Everything that happens to you is a form of instruction if you pay attention“.
