SALT LAKE CITY, UT, August 31, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Giving Principles - Investing in People Telesummit is designed to inspire and empower nonprofit leaders and volunteers in the work they do to raise money for their charities. For this inaugural virtual event we have assembled a panel of experts who share the strategies that make their charities truly impactful and the fundraising techniques that fuel their success. Each organization has been selected because they have a unique story to share which will add to the overall richness of the community experience and learning opportunities.
With an impressive lineup of presenters, the telesummit is open to everyone wanting to increase their knowledge of fundraising and social good ideas and spark unimagined support of their cause. The telesummit registrants are expected to be from a broad swath of cause-affiliated organizations who will engage with thought-leaders sharing invaluable information.
For the free event, one interview will be released each day, Monday through Friday from September 12 to September 30. Each interview is 30-45 minutes in duration and will include a free gift from each speaker. Each interview will be available for 3 full days to accommodate busy schedules. These interviews are packed with wisdom and advice that will be valuable for any nonprofit seeking to make a difference.
"As the world continues to change rapidly, and new technology shakes up the global marketplace, fundraisers must evolve to meet donors where they are," said Andrea Barnes, CEO of AB Funding Solutions the driving force behind this conference. "I believe that connecting people in the field who perform humanitarian, artistic, educational, and social services work -- with people who care is the key to large-scale impact."
This three-week event includes presenters like Lynne Twist, Founder of the Soul of Money Institute and Pachamama Alliance; Devin Thorpe, author and new media journalist known as a champion of social good; and Jean Oelwang, President of Virgin Unite (the non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group - Global champions of business as a force for good!) & Senior Partner, The B Team.

About AB Funding Solutions and The Giving Principles
Andrea Barnes founded AB Funding Solutions after having spent her entire career raising money for worthy non-profit organizations. Our company exists because we believe in the nobility of raising money for great charitable causes and facilitating the growth and development of the people who do this work - board members, executive directors, development staff, volunteers and social entrepreneurs. Our programs develop fundraising and advocacy competencies, strengthen the individual's personal conviction and resolve to do the work and help to develop institutional cultures that respect, support and nurture the fundraising role to ensure the highest possibility of success. Only when the development role is competently and passionately staffed can the vital work of the life-changing, life-saving charity be realized.
Andrea created a comprehensive fundraising course called, The Giving Principles | Learn to Raise Money for the Cause You Love to support founders of new nonprofits and fundraising staff members who are new to their positions.
