As director of the Tallahassee Senior Center and Foundation, which includes 15 satellite sites throughout the capital city and Leon County, she has facilitated the growth of the Foundation from $60K to over $600K in her 19 years, including 110+ business partners.

We all know funding drives our ability to offer programs and that senior centers have a lot to offer our funders and donors. Attendees will explore a variety of fundraising and partnership development ideas. During the workshop they will be guided through a process to identify and inventory resources specific to their centers.
They will learn to develop a customized sponsor package that includes benefits they might offer to their partners. Ideas will be shared to help with building relationships with businesses and non-profit organizations.
Talking points will be suggested to help formulate their presentation to potential funders. Participants will come away with the ability to create a winwin- win resource package for their participants, programs, and partners.
