Building Donor Loyalty: What it takes and how your database can help

Date/TimeTuesday, June 18, 2013 3-4pm ET


Most nonprofits work so diligently to secure the first gift with little plan for how to develop a deeper relationship with the donor. This personal connection results not only in increased commitment and donor loyalty, but also in as much as doubling the lifetime value of your donors.

This session will explore the fundamentals for creating Donor Loyalty. We will share the latest findings from the Fundraising Effectiveness Project report commissioned by AFP and the Urban Institute. The dismal news in this report can and should be an eye opener for every non-profit engaged in fundraising.

We will also explore the Donor Loyalty principles of Dr. Adrian Sargeant, the world-renowned authority on donor retention and donor loyalty! Dr. Sargeant’s principles are based upon years of research conducted in the sector and can be used by any organization — whether you are a one-person shop or a large department.

You will be surprised at how simple it can be!

Show Me the Money: Fundraising That Taps into The 90% of All Wealth That Is Not Cash

Date/TimeTuesday, January 22, 2013 3-4pm ET

Want some great reasons for your charity to take any and all non-cash donations? Wonder why other charities seem to increase their fundraising in good years and bad years, quickly build up their endowments, have the resources they need? Well, find out in the webinar. Here’s the real story:

This is personal. Russ’s wife was diagnosed with a rare terminal disease some years ago. She owes her life to the extraordinary work of the charity that supports her illness. That charity has had the resources to provide so much because it takes advantage of almost anything a generous donor wants to contribute.

That got Russ to thinking: What if the charity had not taken those donations? Would his wife and other needy people still be alive? Would she be doing as well as she is doing? Why are charities leaving so much money on the table? If 90% of the wealth is not cash, why shouldn’t charities be thinking out of the (cash) box? What would it do for the world if all charities took advantage of the 90% of wealth that donors want to contribute?
