Every month, I compile the internet's biggest list of free nonprofit webinars.

 

2021 will be starting off strong with lots of free content on how nonprofits and membership organizations can continue to adapt, innovate and make the best of the upcoming year. 

   

January webinar topics include nonprofit trends, virtual events, recurring donations, volunteer management, nonprofit branding, social media and much more. 

 

Please also note that since we're publishing this webinar quite early in December due to holidays, not everyone has had a chance to list their January webinars. Be sure to bookmark this page and come back to it in the first few days of January — I'll be adding more webinars as they become available. 

    

Now onto this month’s webinars. Please note, all times are indicated in EST.

If you’re hesitant or unsure about monthly donors, this FREE interactive webinar will answer the questions you, your boss or board may still have about the value of adding a monthly donor program to your revenue stream.


The presenter, Erica Waasdorp, has worked with organizations of all sizes in starting and growing their monthly donor programs. During this webinar, Erica will show you examples of how very small nonprofits have created successful monthly donor programs with minimal effort.

It doesn't take much for small nonprofit to reap the benefits of monthly recurring donations.


Erica will share examples and results with you from small to mid-size organizations and how their program has grown.


After this webinar, you'll  know that you have what it takes to grow the number of monthly donors in your organization. Your donors will love it and you’ll reach your fundraising and donor retention goals sooner. But you must start NOW.


4. Asking Styles: A Revolutionary Concept in Fundraising

January 7, 1:00PM


There is no one right way to ask for a donation. Some people take great care preparing well-organized and complete presentations. Others prepare with just a few talking points and then use the energy of the prospect to guide the conversation. Some people are energized by the prospect of tying down a gift. For others it is a great act of courage.


You have your own Asking Style, and if you learn to ask in your Style, you will be more comfortable, confident and successful as an asker. Are you a Rainmaker? Go-Getter? Kindred Spirit? Mission Controller? A mix of two Styles?


Join Brian Saber, President of Asking Matters, to learn about the revolutionary concept of Asking Styles created by his company.


What You Will Learn from this Free Nonprofit Webinar:

  • The unique strengths you bring to the table and how to apply them to the ask
  • Which prospects are the best match given your Asking Style
  • How to craft your Case for Support in your own words and Style
  • What to watch out for along the way

5. It's Not Either/Or: Raising Money with an Anti-Racist Approach

In this webinar, we’ll help you assess and revitalize your development program to take an anti-racist approach that results in successful fundraising and a high return on investment. In addition to providing practical advice and anti-racist actions you can take in your fundraising, we’ll also consider the roles that culture and systems play in our fundraising. Two of the most burdensome traps that many nonprofits fall into are doing things as they’ve always been done and making assumptions. Participants will learn strategies that help you overcome these tendencies.

  • Understand that “Anti-racist” doesn’t mean a lower ROI
  • Learn how to de-couple money from power and still raise lots of money
  • Discover how to be anti-racist in your prospecting

7. The rise of Millennial major donors in nonprofit fundraising

January 12, 12:00 PM

This webinar is worth 1.0 CFRE credits.

A subset of the Millennial generation, such as bankers, consultants, tech workers, etc, are very well off and poised to become major donors. This generation is also much less likely to be married or have children than previous generations, making them ideal prospects for major gifts.

In this webinar, we'll cover:

Famously, the US pays more for healthcare than any other nation, 17.7% of the economy in 2019, yet its quality falls far short of other nations. Increasingly, healthcare’s shortfalls are recognized. This year, the American Medical Association formally recognized racism as a public health threat.

  • What does good community-based health research look like? How does poorly conducted health research in the past continue to cause problems in the present?
  • This year the AMA and many US cities have declared that racism is a matter of public health. But what is required to convert words of concern into action?
  • Is COVID-19 teaching us new things about healthcare in the US, or is it mostly confirming what was already known? If it is teaching us new things, what are they?
  • What are the structural causes of healthcare injustice in the United States and what can be done to address them?
  • What principles guide the US healthcare system, as it currently operates? What should those principles be?
  • How do we get from “here” to “there”? In other words, what kind of transition policies are required?
  • What role can nonprofits and philanthropy play in supporting economic and racial justice in the healthcare sector?

Whether you’re a nonprofit leader, board member, or engaged in community-based organizing, this webinar will provide you with real-life examples and lessons learned that can inform your work in your own community.

36. Managing Cash Flow

January 27, 1:00PM


While standard nonprofit financial reports – the budget, income statement, and balance sheet – provide important management information, these statements alone do not tell whether there is enough cash on hand to pay for an unexpected expense, to take on a new opportunity, or even to cover payroll next month.

Leadership transitions are an inevitable part of every nonprofit’s life cycle. While these transitions can be daunting and often carry an emotional weight, the leadership transition and development process can benefit both the people involved and the organization. Transitioning from one nonprofit leader to another is an opportunity for investing in your overall organizational strategy and growth. Leadership transition is a time-bound, four-phase transition from one leader to another.

    Great List of varied and interesting webinars. Please try to make this monthly list available before the month starts. There were a few webinars at the beginning of the month I missed because I didn't know about them until after they ran.
  • Tatiana Morand

    Tatiana Morand:
    Hi Greg, thanks for your comment! We always send out the email with the list of webinars prior to the end of the month, so if you sign up for it you're guaranteed to see them in advance.

    Hi Rhonda! We're glad you find this list helpful. We publish it every month, so keep checking back to see if any of the webinars are happening again (they aren't all run by us, so it depends on the company administering them).
  • Shawne Albritton:
    Hi, I was wondering how to get a webinar added to your site for the month of July Webinars. We are doing a Webinar - Q&A with Industry leaders. John Taylor from United Way Worldwide and Joan Hestneses from Institute on Aging. We will be discussing the current crisis, its impact on Non-Profits, and how to handle IT and technology concerns going forward. Learn tips to navigate through the fog of a crisis so you can focus on the community you serve.

    Hi Tatiana,
    Thanks for putting out this info as a resource. I realized I put out my question on the wrong page earlier. I was wondering if you could bring back the upcoming webinars info for the last week of July? I remember seeing them yesterday and there were a couple that I was interested in but hadn't had a chance to sign up yet and now I just see one. Thank you!
  • Tatiana Morand

    Hi Chitra, please leave your email and I can send you a screenshot of the webinars from July. (I won't approve that comment so your email will not be publicly shown, but I will see it.)
