Do you ever find it challenging to have conversations with prospective donors and develop their interest in your cause? As fundraisers, we send out hundreds – maybe even thousands – of mail to our donors and constituents every year along with many, many other efforts to gain interest and support, but what if you aren’t getting the results to match your efforts? Learn how to cut through the clutter, avoid wasted time, energy and money and get better results with prospective donors by breaking down the best donor cultivation strategies, the importance of donor correspondence and its best practices, campaign timelines, key dates and action deadlines that you need to know and how to maintain recognizable consistency. This workshop will also touch on great know-hows for running your organization including incorporating new budgets, developing and employing strategic plans, and general internal and external communication plans that are effective. Register online or call Madhu Gupta at 860-447-1411, Ext. 3.
