If you have ever faced the challenge of reaching new donors or engaging existing donors at a higher, more impactful level, then you will want to join us for this conversation exploring what donors expect and what we should deliver. We’ve invited local donors and development staff to share their tools, tips, and experience for strengthening relationships between donors and organizations that will in-turn improve effectiveness and long-term impact. Ensure that your allocation, campaign, and communication activities include information essential for meeting donor expectations.

We will explore:

  • Why donors support issues and the importance of community impact on your fundraising and campaign efforts
  • Essential information donors and potential donors want to know about your program
  • The importance of not only what you say to donors and potential donors, but also when and how you say it
  • Essential information you need to know from donors to improve their donor experience
  • How the donor experience directly impacts the success of your campaign efforts
  • Why donor fulfillment is critical for ongoing donor satisfaction and support
  • How often to communicate with your donors
