Each month, we'll bring in new speakers and experts in the field to focus on specific areas of fundraising. Same great content, now virtual!
Where does your organization focus most of its fundraising energy? Chances are, the answer is getting more donors. But what about keeping your current donors?
Research shows that nearly three out of every four new nonprofit donors leave an organization and never come back. This has led many to focus less on acquiring new supporters and more on nurturing the relationships they already have. Given the challenging fundraising environment of COVID-19, this is more important than ever.
Join the Fundraising Academy and Leichtag Foundation's Vice President of Philanthropy & Organizational Development Sharyn Goodson as we explore:
- Why organizations lose donors and money
- How keeping donors increases fundraising success
- Opportunities to build donor relationships and win back lapsed donors
- Elements of a successful donor retention plan and tips for implementation
