About the Event

This session focuses on high-payoff, cost-effective and creative strategies for achieving extraordinary fundraising results-in good times and bad. When the economy is slowing or in a slump, nonprofits must garner additional resources to fulfill their missions and, in many cases, respond to an increased demand for services. In good times, nonprofits want to move forward in achieving their most visionary aspirations.

Participants will learn the critical steps for designing and managing a significant and growing annual campaign. Just as important, development professionals will learn how to integrate a major gift initiative into the plan-one based on capital campaign principles-into the plan. In this fast-paced session, participants will learn how to recruit movers and shakers who will help identify, cultivate and successfully approach major gift prospects. Information presented will help assure that top priority, recession-proof activities are accomplished. Suggestions will also help fundraisers focus on dramatically increased expectations and results. Volunteers will join us as we say, "Let's have some fun and raise a lot more money."

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn how to:

  • Design and implement a comprehensive annual campaign that includes a highly effective major gift initiative
  • Stay focused on the priority actions needed to increase net contributed income
  • Recruit volunteers who will actually make their calls
  • "Recession-proof" your annual campaign
  • Overcome your organization's "poverty mentality" and raise pace-setting major gifts-on an annual basis

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn:

  1. What "Donor Touchpoint Management" means and how the term redefines donor relations
  2. How to plan and manage "touchpoints" with donors
  3. How to involve members of the development staff and others in the organization - including leadership volunteers - in planning and implementing "donor touchpoint management"
  4. Ways to expand their existing donor relations programs by using the "donor touchpoint management" approach
