Virtual Offering
This live, three-part series will be held from January 17–19, 2023
Appreciative Philanthropy Logo ColorOnWhite

The CU System, in partnership with Advancement Resources, invites you to take a walk with Jim Hodge and Scott Arthur as they share the essential shifts they lead to inspire significant philanthropy, invigorate staff, and transform how their organization thinks and works—especially in principal and major giving.

Ideal for development leaders, principal giving professionals, and experienced major giving professionals who aspire to meaningfully engage, inspire, and co-create with benefactors. This learning experience will explore the essential shifts necessary to assist benefactors in realizing their most meaningful and aspirational goals through philanthropy. Attendees will leave with a renewed sense of purpose, as well as specific strategies, tactics, processes, and tools to facilitate transformational “campaigns of one” for their most significant benefactors.

Dates and Time

The three sessions of the virtual workshop will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. MT on the following dates:

Tuesday, January 17, 2023
Wednesday, January 18, 2023
Thursday, January 19, 2023

Virtual workshops are held live. Participants should attend all three sessions for the full workshop experience. Workshop recordings and/or make-up sessions are not available.

Classroom Engagement

Participants will attend three structured 3-hour sessions in a Zoom classroom. Each session will be followed by an optional opportunity to participate in an open, informal discussion with Scott and Jim. This experience features discussion opportunities, application exercises, and interactive facilitator support. Sessions are scheduled over a three-day period. Participants should be prepared to attend all three sessions, as this is not a webinar, and interactivity is essential to the success of the experience.

Pre-work Assignments

Prior to the workshop series, participants will be asked to complete a brief pre-work assignment to optimize the learning experience.

Technical Requirements

Participants are required to download the Zoom™ application to participate in the workshop. Participants should be prepared to use an individual computer, speakers, a microphone, and a strong internet connection.

A detailed welcome guide will be sent to all participants prior to the first session.
