Using the Books to Tell Your Story: A Fundraising and Finance Partnership

Join UVA’s Vice President for Advancement, Mark Luellen, and Vice President for Finance, Melody Bianchetto, in exploring how the fundraising and finance offices work together. From their experiences at UVA, as well as with community nonprofits, Mark and Melody will explore how to communicate budgets, finances, need, and opportunity for different audiences.

The discussion will explore:

  • Presenting for boards and donors
  • Advocating for investments in operations and scale
  • Contextualizing risks and potential rewards related to strategy and scale within the fundraising and finance context.

Fundraisers, CFOs, and CEO/EDs should all find value in this session.

This training is part of CNE’s Finance Academy, in partnership with CFA Insitute.
