Show Your Donors You Get Them
Date: July 09, 2019
A recent Forbes study shows that 88% of companies now leverage big data to improve their understanding of each consumer. There is no reason nonprofits shouldn’t do the same.
Direct response campaigns are the foundation of most fundraising programs, providing a reliable revenue stream and a healthy pool of prospects who, with proper cultivation, can be upgraded to major donors or long-term sustainers. But with donors receiving more solicitations than ever before, nonprofits need to strategically tailor their engagement strategies to maximize response rates and ROI.
This webinar series will present strategies for maximizing revenue and response for different types of large-scale marketing programs, with an emphasis on how to use data to place donors in the right campaigns and engage them in a more compelling and personal manner.
The Hidden Powers of Donor Surveys
Date: July 8, 2019
As fundraisers, we sometimes suffer from a lack of curiosity about our donors. So many of our donations are from people who we know very little about. And even our longest-running donor relationships continue despite not knowing how they feel about the relationship.
The good news is that research shows that donors actually like it when we ask them questions about themselves and how they feel about our organization. Knowing that information can also be invaluable in guiding our donor communication efforts.
Whether you’re just now discovering the power of donor surveys, or you’re looking to up your game, this session is for you! Steven got his start in the nonprofit sector producing fundraising videos and other digital content for organizations like Butler University, Girl Scouts, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the American Heart Association.
Steven volunteers his time on the Project Work Group of the Fundraising Effectiveness Project and the Study Fundraising Steering Group at the Hartsook Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University. He is also an AFP Center for Fundraising Innovation (CFI) committee member. Steven has contributed content to the National Council of Nonprofits, AFP, NTEN and Nonprofit Hub, and is a frequent conference speaker, having spoken at AFP International, NAYDO, Cause Camp, ADRP, the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference, and Planet Philanthropy to name a few.
