Fundraising can be the bane of your existence as a social entrepreneur, but it doesn’t have to be so bad. In this very practical session, we’ll dive into everything from how to develop a smart pipeline, to how to focus your goals, and even how to use various different legal structures for and against your advantage. Come prepared with examples and questions as we’ll use real case studies during this session.
This workshop will be led by David Burstein (Gallatin '12). David is the founder of Run for America, a citizen-powered movement to reimagine politics, reinvigorate government, and restore the promise of America for the 21st century. Run for America strategically recruits, trains, and works to elect a new generation of leaders to Congress who are committed to a solutions-first, future-focused, and innovative approach to tackling our major national challenges. David is also the author of Fast Future: How the Millennial Generation Is Shaping Our World and the founder and Former Executive Director of Generation18, a nonpartisan young voter engagement organization.
