I was enlightened by the importance of having a case of support and liked that I was given the tools, and direction, of how to get started.

Very helpful for the beginner who has no idea what a Case for Support is, what it should contain and how you can utilize it.

Lots of great information on what needs to be in the different case statements

Great webinar. Anyone needing information on how/where to start with creating a case statement should start here!

OMG it is like you are reading my mind – the pdf resource you shared is EXACTLY what I need, and just when I need it. Thank you so much!

GREAT WEBINAR!!! So many are just ones that take time without really learning things, this one is 110% worth it!!!

Great information, I see what we are doing right and what we can improve on!

Lots of info! Looking forward to trying to put it to use.

It was very informative and included a lot of good takeaways.

Amazing and to the point! Thank you for the topic and the information cannot wait to review the slides again.

“I’ve been involved in more webinars, conferences and trainings than I can count, this one is one of the best I’ve attended!

Great webinar with lots of suggestions and ideas to help make this year’s end of year campaign a much bigger success.

That was terrific! Lots of food for thought… and action! Thank you so much for offering this webinar.

Her webinars are always the best!

The presenter was so great and the material so easy to digest. We have some work to do, but with the recommended tools, I know we’ll get there! Thanks!

I am new to capital campaign fundraising. The seminar and Ms. Cabral’s presentation provided a detailed road map as to the necessary steps and plan as to how to put together a successful campaign.

This webinar opportunity appeared in my email at the best time because The Safe Center LI is just embarking on a $3 million capital campaign and will be working with a consultant closely on achieving our goals. It is useful to know best practices so that we can engage with the consultant in a way that will yield a successful campaign.

Thank you so much for conducting such an educational webinar. I’m inspired and excited to begin our campaign.

Thank you for a very informative webinar.  I found a lot of the information useful and something to further discuss with the Executive Director before “jumping” into campaign mode.

Robin’s presentation was educational AND thought-provoking for me! It was helpful to learn that we’re doing some things right, but could make improvements. I can’t wait to get into the supplemental materials, as I think those alone justify the cost of the webinar. Highly recommend!

Being involved for years on a few non-profit boards, I’ve seen good and I’ve seen bad practices. This webinar was excellent in providing me with useful data and understanding of what it means to be a board member and how to get the most out of it for myself as well as the organization.

As a new board member, the webinar formed a good foundation of information of how I can fulfill my role as a board member.

As someone who has served on numerous boards and is a current board chair, I was a little reluctant to take this course when I saw that it was described as a basic course. But although many of the concepts are pretty old hat for anyone who has board experience, there were several “basics” that my boards had never done and I as a leader was not doing. So even if you are a seasoned board member, I think you find that there are “basics” that you are either unaware of or not following to the fullest extent.

The content was excellent, and the download material will no doubt come in handy.

She was organized and had definitive ideas on how to engage my BOD

This was an excellent overview of an important subject – How to have an Effective Board. My organization will be using many of the suggestions made by Robin Cabral.

I finally got a job offer! And I thought of your advice so much, about envisioning a situation – and I did, and it worked, and you’re my heroine! Thank you so much for being so helpful and kind during what was a very difficult time. Hope you’re still enjoying your fabulous self!

Great overview for board members. I wish I could have convinced some of mine to attend!

All those who are new to being on a board would benefit from this.

This is a great introduction on what is required when sitting on a board.

This webinar brought up some new details for our board. We are covering 99% of this, but great to learn more about that 1% we can work on and also always improve on other elements. Thank you

The webinar exceeded my expectations. I wish our whole board could have participated.

Wow! A great webinar and I am so excited to share this info with my executive team!

This webinar was a great resource for best practice knowledge of board development. I am excited to take many of the things I learned and the shared tools and use them in the field with my Board of Directors. I highly recommend this for anyone in governance or who engages with your organization’s board.

Organized, creative use of interactive polls, encouraged questions and comments so we learned from each other, excellent information!

How to Engage Your Board members provided excellent information that was easy to understand and implement. The documents and templates will be extremely helpful as we move forward.

For a current Board member, this is a helpful and refreshing review. I would recommend this as part of the Board review of its own effectiveness. Thanks so much!

Great overview of Capital Campaign for beginners.

It made me “back up” and think through some things that will be integral to our success. Just in time!

Even though I’ve been involved with capital campaigns before, this was good as a review with great reminders as we gear up as well being useful for someone just starting their first one. And love having access to the tools so I don’t have to resurrect past campaign materials.

This webinar was excellent. It far exceeded my expectations. I came away with practical applications to use with our capital campaign.

Great basic overview of how to start a Capital Campaign! Great methodical step-by-step approach!

I appreciated all facts and thoughts on policies when dealing with Capital campaign.

We received a great template for how to move forward with realistic benchmarks for where we are in the process. The presentation was very engaging, with presenter soliciting audience responses to poll questions

The downloadable documents alone were worth the price of the webinar.

Thanks again. The presentation was great, and the material is perfectly timed for us!

The polls keep things interested. Presenter was very gracious about sharing information via the polling feature.

Absolutely essential for small non-profits where development office has many roles. Many ideas for planning introduced that I had not thought of. I believe this will greatly impact the success of our upcoming campaign.

Great presenter, good information that is very useful. I am not big fan of webinars but this one was excellent!

I thought Robin was excellent. Looking forward to seeing the materials as well.

I have been in my position for a long time. I found Robin’s presentation gave me renewed energy to restructure my board.

I wanted to share I sat in your webinar Making a Case for Support Webinar and it was excellent. I already used a number of your suggestions to enhance my ability to build a case for support for one of my clients. Thank you!

We have already used your presentation to our advantage here in the office, having posted the seven categories of donors on the “upcoming challenges” bulletin board! Lots of good ideas.

Robin presented one of the more practical workshops that I have attended in a long-time.

Her presentation had excellent coverage of fundamentals as well as actionable development plans.

She provided a very practical and enthusiastic approach to key topic area.

We thoroughly enjoyed her workshop and learned quite a bit about organizing and presenting our case of support and case statements. We are now energized and ready to begin to organize our next capital campaign!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! This morning was wonderful! Everyone was telling me how much they loved it. Would you believe all the evaluations came back with “excellent” plus several asked for “longer program”!

I just had the time to quickly peruse the Case and of course I’m blown away.  I have been trying to do this for over a year!!!!

You are by far the BEST speaker and all your handouts are wonderful.

Your webinar was one of the best I ever heard! It was informative, high energy, engaging and thought provoking!!”

You detailed all aspects of the Case and broke it down which made it so easy to understand. I have paid hundreds for the courses and I still did not understand it as I did through your webinar.”
