5 Simple Strategies to Boost Donor Retention
Registration is now open for the AFP February Luncheon.
Plymouth Congregational Church, Waveland Room
4126 Ingersoll Ave, Des Moines, Iowa
Join your colleagues for an AFP hosted webinar “Five Simple Strategies to Boost Donor Retention” followed by roundtable discussions.
About the webinar: Do you ever feel like you're on a fundraising treadmill? That you're constantly looking for new donors because you aren't keeping the ones you already have? Then you may need to change your stewardship approach. Because taking good care of donors, listening to and respecting them, is how you'll raise more money (and get off that pesky treadmill). It's as simple as transforming how you thank donors, how you share the impact of their giving, and how to keep them delightfully engaged with your cause. Learn how during this webinar with Shanon Doolittle and leave with actionable steps you can take now to start building more gratifying, long-term relationships with your donors.
At the conclusion of this session, participates will have learned:
- How to write better thank you letters
- How to make donor thank you calls
- How to easily share impact stories with donors
- How to ask donors for feedback
- How to add delight and surprise to the donor experience
