The Heritage Management Organization – Training Heritage Leaders is organizing an Executive Leadership Development in Heritage Management Workshop entitled “Successful Fundraising for Heritage Managers: Strategies and Best Practices”.

The workshop will take place on 15-17 February, 2019, in the Library of The Friends of Music Society of Megaron Mousikis Athinon (The Athens Concert Hall, Vasilissis Sofias & Kokkali 1, 115 21 Athens, Greece).

This 3-day workshop combines lectures, case studies, class discussions and interactive exercises to develop and apply successful fundraising strategies and skills for increasing contributed revenues to advance, support and sustain your organization.

H2Growth Strategies LLC principals Linda C. Hartley (MBA, Stern School-NYU) and Vivien Hoexter (MBA, Wharton School-UPENN) will conduct the workshop. The H2Growth Strategies team has partnered with over 100 non-for-profit organizations to raise over $ 1.5 billion through capital campaigns, program initiatives, and leadership development.

Hoexter and Hartley have co-authored a new book, Big Impact: Insights & Stories From America’s Non-Profit Leaders, after interviewing nearly 50 non-profit CEOs from across the United States, including international foundations such as the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The authors share successful strategies for leadership, large-scale problem solving, and effecting social change with the aim of inspiring readers to lead and support causes in their own communities.
