Asking Rights

Tom Ralser, author of ROI for Nonprofits: The New Key to Sustainability,
will give the first public presentation of his upcoming book Asking Rights on Tuesday, August 20 at the Orlando Museum of Art.  Non-profit executives, development staff and board members receive complementary registration for the morning session as Tom Ralser discusses current trends in philanthropic development.

The follow up book to ROI for Nonprofits, Asking Rights explores how earning the
right to ask people for money takes more than emotional appeals and measures of
activity. Tom will share how his experience in hundreds of campaigns has led to
his ability to capitalize on the motivations of the “other side of the desk,” that of the
nonprofit investor.

Trends in Philanthropy will provide complimentary registration for all non-profit executives, development staff and board members. REGISTER AT

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at the Orlando Museum of Art, the morning event beings at 8:30 a.m.. REGISTER AT

About Donna Marino, CFRE

Donna has advocated professionally for Valencia College students since 2000 as part of College and Community Relations and joined the Valencia Foundation in 2007. Colleagues have been known to tease about her love of all things Valencia: the opportunity it gives students, the role Valencia has in the community, and especially the FLAIR! Donna began her direct work with the Valencia Foundation in 2007. She enjoys interacting with alumni and community members who make educational opportunities happen for Valencia students every day. Currently her passion lies with utilizing new ways to connect with donors, facilitating scholarship and endowed chair donations, writing grants in support of student programs and implementing a donor society to honor those who wish to leave a legacy of learning for future students. In September 2009 Donna was awarded the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) designation. She serves as president for the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), board member with American Association for Women in Community Colleges and is a member of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Donna has an MBA from Belhaven University and a BS in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida. It's important to note that Donna's foundation for excellence was obtained from Valencia where she earned her first college degree: Associate in Arts.
