Treating Employees as we Treat Donors

What constitutes a top donor for you? Who are your top donors that you personally manage? That your staff manage? How many top donors are you responsible for? What is the number one challenge you face with your top donors? Should employees and co-workers also be treated as we treat donors?

Agnes McGlone Swanson offers a fresh perspective where you will learn new tactics for finding and cultivating a pipeline of candidates, how applying your skills in stewarding your donors can translate to how you steward candidates in the hiring process, and fine tune your management skills to retain staff for longer tenures with your organization.

Our Presenter

Agnes McGlone SwansonAgnes McGlone Swanson was raised in Long Island, New York and moved to Southern California at the age of 14. She was the first person in her family to attend college and received her degree from California State University, Fullerton.

After college, Agnes secured a position at the American Heart Association Southern California where she remained for 27 years serving in many capacities, including Special Events Director, Senior Vice President, Staff Recruiter, Major Gifts Director and Executive Director. Agnes says her passion lies in working with corporate and individual donors to fulfill their philanthropic desires and coaching non-profit staff to be their best.

Agnes joined The Shea Center, the largest therapeutic riding center in the world, in 2018 to become the first Chief Development Officer at The Center. In 2019 the Center had its most successful year financially and programmatically.

Agnes builds rapport and trust with others quickly and enjoys gathering supporters interested in helping The Shea Center grow. She comments, “These Shea Center friends want to be involved with our organization and see their generosity make an impact. I love to raise funds for this extraordinary place and work with many wonderful staff, volunteers, and donors.”

When not busy raising money for The Shea Center, Agnes enjoys time at home in Laguna Niguel with her husband and two daughters. Her hobbies include walking, traveling, entertaining, and hiking!
