Your legacy as a fundraiser: an interactive exploration” Penny Cowden,MPA, CFRE, FAHP

You’ve committed to a career that focuses on helping donors leave a legacy that speaks to their values and their aspirations for the world. As philanthropic professionals, we have our own values. Aspirations. Dreams. Desires. What are they and how will you live them? Penny Cowden will inspire you to think about your own legacy—your gift to donors, to yourself and to the world. Your work has so much impact—likely more than you realize. What can you consciously do to understand and value your own legacy to the world of philanthropy? To explore and think about one’s Destiny, Character and Calling – or our “Why-Be-Do®” – is liberating and empowering; it inspires us and therefore others. Penny will offer some ideas and thoughts on our amazing legacy as fundraisers as well as some interactive fun with looking at your own “Why-Be-Do.” Join us for this opportunity to be inspired and inspiring!
