Event Description

Agile Engagement: Strategies for Building Lasting Donor Relationships

Matt Lehrman, Managing Director, Social Prosperity Partners

As nonprofits adjust to the "new normal," building and maintaining lasting donor relationships in times of change and uncertainty is critical. This highly interactive workshop offers a practical and innovative framework for emphasizing adaptability in donor relationships. Discover practical tools and techniques grounded in tenacity, agility, and humanity that will help you build strong donor relationships designed to endure whatever the future holds.

This workshop culminates in attendees participating in a live donor focus group—a thought-provoking and entirely unscripted conversation with real individual donors from our community. This panel is not a discussion you’ll watch anonymously from behind a mirror. You’ll participate in an unrehearsed, unfiltered conversation with a diverse panel of donors supporting local causes spanning animal welfare, arts and culture, and social services. These donors have agreed to share what they’re thinking and how they're behaving in the current environment. This is an incredible and unmissable opportunity for “everything you always wanted to know about donors but were afraid to ask." 

For accommodation requests, please contact us at Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.
