         Keep Your Donors: Building Profitable Relationships that Last

Thursday, May 13, 2010
8:00am to 3:00pm
Grappone Conference Center
Concord, NH

Topics to be covered in the morning session:

  • Why relationships are more important now than ever before: donor choice, and fundraisers who are tactic rich but strategy poor
  • How to create a donor-centered organization: donor interests, emotional triggers, and the Donor Centric Pledge
  • How to develop meaningful relationships: donor research, genuine conversation, cultivation strategies, and donor-centered communications

Topics to be covered in the afternoon session:

  • How to identify those who might be interested: a lifestyle issue for staff and board members, and no trespassing
  • How to involve board members in fund development: defining the measures, participating in the planning process, and nurturing relationships through story telling and conversation
  • How to help board members do this work: effective enabling by staff
  • How to ask for gifts: using personal, face-to-face solicitation
