Exclusive KNN Member Benefit 

KNN offers free Fundraising Peer Huddles for member organizations’ staff and board members to strengthen their fundraising practices. Using KNN’s Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Kentucky tools as the basis for discussion, the Fundraising Huddle meets on the second Wednesday of every other month from 2-3:30pm ET. See below for dates.

The Fundraising Huddle offers KNN members a virtual opportunity to discuss recommended fundraising practices with their peers and discussions are facilitated by Tawanda Owsley, seasoned fundraising executive and Senior Vice President/Chief Development and Marketing Officer at Hosparus Health. Tawanda has more than 20 years of fundraising experience and proven results, including a wide range of nonprofit leadership and philanthropic expertise.

On the May & July huddles - 2-part discussion: Having an organizational savings account by way of an endowment can an important tool for not going belly up when people are relying on you. Building a successful legacy giving program will want to start with the board of directors. We'll talk about how to get your program off the ground, strategies for engaging and building excitement with the board, and easy ways all nonprofits can keep legacy gifts front and center with your donors and volunteers.

Note: We will continue this topic of conversation on the July huddle. You are encouraged - but not required - to register for and attend both sessions in this special two-part series! Register for the July huddle here.
