CCRDA WEBINARS

At CCRDA, we believe it is important to learn from each other regularly as we are community of Christ-centred organizations who desire to share skills, knowledge and support one another. In order to facilitate this mutual learning relationship, in May 2017, we introduced our first series of monthly webinars which feature one of our members or an expert in a relevant field on a topic of their expertise. All our webinars are FREE for members and cost $30 for non-members. Click here to register.

Strategies to Improve your Digital Fundraising Campaign
October 22, 2019 at 2:00pm EST/11:00am PDT

Graeme Watt, Anthem Creative

With #givingtuesday just around the corner and year-end looming in the not-so-distant future...you’re probably neck deep in planning one or more digital fundraising campaigns (and if you’re not, you probably should be).

This webinar will unpack 7 deadly mistakes that many non-profits are making with their digital campaigns and give you practical strategies for how you can avoid them this year. If you’ve tried running a digital fundraising campaign and gotten underwhelming results, there’s a good chance that you’re making one or more of these 7 mistakes.

Development and the Environment: Incorporating the Environment in our Work
November 20, 2019 at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PDT

Jennifer Fernandes, Consultant

The Asian Development Bank reported that unabated changes in the environment could reverse achievements in development and improvements of living standards in developing countries. What can we as NGOs do to ensure our work has a lasting impact? This webinar will look at development work using an environmental lens and will provide practical tools to incorporate environmental sustainability in our work.

Rooting for Rivals
December 11, 2019 at 3:00pm EST/12:00pm PDT

Chris Horst, HOPE International

In an age of surging individualism, it’s never been more important for Christians to come together and link arms across our organizational boundaries in our shared mission. We have an incredible opportunity to look beyond the organizational names etched on our business cards and embrace the bigger calling we share as brothers and sisters in Christ.
