Event Description

Recession-Proofing Your Fundraising through Outstanding Stewardship

Laurel McCombs, Senior Philanthropy Advisor, The Osborne Group

Retaining donors should always be an important goal for nonprofits, but in times of uncertainty it is an absolute necessity. A base of loyal donors helps sustain the organization and fuel your major gift pipeline, but most organizations are tapping into only a fraction of stewardship’s power. In this workshop, we’ll discuss retention, communication, and engagement strategies that weave stewardship into everything you do. You’ll walk away with an action plan, fresh doable ideas, and tons of inspiration and motivation to help you close out the year.

Automatic closed captioning via Zoom is turned on by default for all NAO virtual sessions. For other accommodation requests, please contact us at Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.
