Casey Davis, the Executive Director at the Diabetes Research Connection, joins the Responsive Fundraising Podcast to discuss her experience leading a growing nonprofit through transition and trials. During our conversation we discuss Casey’s “partner with” fundraising approach, the importance of having a holistic fundraising strategy, and why Casey is optimistic about the industry’s future.
Diabetes Research Connection empowers people affected by type 1 diabetes and supports highly innovative research, for which seed funding is notoriously hard to obtain. This unique, disease-specific crowdfunding platform was established by leading diabetes scientists and advocates. This one-of-a-kind community is uniquely focused on funding innovative, discovery research and supporting early career scientists in type 1 diabetes research.
Traditional fundraising strategies no longer work. This blueprint explains why today's donor expects more, and how nonprofits are shifting to responsive fundraising.
