24 Fundraising tactics NOT to use…. Asking from “weakness” or deficit situation, i.e. our budget has been cut, we have no money… Asking for a large gift on the “first date” Demanding a gift Not listening very carefully to the intent of the donor and respecting that intent

25 Plant the Seed Early Cultivate Creatively Harvest a Legacy

26 Offers reach for WSU into every community in the state Has secured some of WSU’s largest private grants to date Strong team with strong leadership from dean, Linda Kirk Fox, and formal partnership with CAHNRS alumni/development effort Partnerships with a variety of colleges on Extension programs WSU Extension Successes

27 Non-traditional alumni base doesn’t fit standard university models Undiscovered prospect pool of individual donors Institutional challenges managing gift/grants Has a fundraising culture at the local level; building one at state level along with increasing staff and training Need to differentiate our niche when easily confused with publicly supported university and in competition with local non-profits WSU Extension Challenges
