The Southwest Florida chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association will host Nonprofit Day, a half-day seminar featuring public relations best practices to help enhance the reach and impact of Southwest Florida’s philanthropic organizations, from 8 a.m. to noon, on Thursday, Nov. 7 at Holiday Inn Fort Myers Airport at Town Center, located at 9931 Interstate Commerce Drive in Fort Myers. This event is an opportunity for Southwest Florida’s charitable organizations – and those interested in learning more about the community’s charity landscape – to learn from local experts.
Nonprofit organizations likely get a boost in interest and support during the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, but fundraising happens throughout the year. This seminar, with the theme “The Giving Season,” will provide attendees with takeaways, practical information and tools to help extend the “giving feeling” all year-round and combat challenges, such as donor fatigue, communication issues and ever-changing tax laws.
Speakers for Nonprofit Day include:
• Eric Anderson, Communications and Social Media Coordinator, The Salvation Army
• Julio Barina, CPA, Tax Manager, Markham, Norton, Mosteller, Wright & Company, P.A.
• Duane Higgins, Director of Development, Lee Health Foundation
• Jill Palmer, Executive Director, American Red Cross Florida’s Southern Gulf Chapter
In addition to the presentations from dynamic speakers, Nonprofit Day offers a unique networking opportunity. Nonprofit public relations, marketing and development professionals, and public relations professionals looking to learn more about development and fundraising can network with others who share similar goals for their organizations.
Sponsors for the event include iPartner Media and Holiday Inn Fort Myers Airport at Town Center. Price is $30 general admission; $20 for students (includes breakfast). For more information and to register to attend, go to www.fpraswfl.org/2019-fpra-nonprofit-day-the-giving-season.
