Donor acquisition, retention, and growth are major focuses for every nonprofit. Between individual fundraising efforts and major giving campaigns, many nonprofits spend time worrying about how to raise funds to support programs and the organization’s health. This session will provide a framework to understand your nonprofit’s value and worth to your community and how that can be used to build effective communication and fundraising strategies. During this session we will:
- Provide you with the tools to determine why people give
- Share how to prove your impact to potential and existing donors
- Discuss how to retain donors year after year
- Suggest ways to build your community for long term growth
