Learn how NYU went from near bankruptcy in 1975 to a Global University
raising approximately $400 to $500 million a year.
This is a rare opportunity for Development Professionals to learn from the distinguished Ms. Naomi Levine, faculty member, New York University School of Professional Studies, consultant to the President of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and the Morse Foundation.
Today there are 1.4 million or more nonprofit organizations, including hospitals, universities, museums, performing arts centers, and thousands of groups that take care of the aged, the poor and the ill.
All of those organizations need money to survive and fundraisers have the responsibility of finding such financial aid for these organizations. Without fundraisers they could not exist.
This intensive One-Day Workshop is valuable to new entrants into the world of development and is particularly relevant to seasoned professionals in the development world. The workshop will be led by Ms. Naomi Levine, nationally regarded as an innovative leader in the field of development.
For 25 years, Naomi Levine was Senior Vice President for External Affairs at New York University (NYU). In this capacity, Mrs. Levine was responsible for development and fundraising; press and public relations; alumni relations; and all special events relating to and involving alumni, trustees and donors.
In 1978, when Mrs. Levine came to NYU, the University was close to bankruptcy – raising between $20-30 million a year, including funds for its medical center, hospital and law school. Under Naomi Levine’s direction, and with the help of an extraordinary Chairman of the Board, Board of Trustees, and several very involved Presidents, NYU began to raise $400 million a year and has become a great global center of learning.
This full day workshop on fundraising will include a networking lunch.
