With the help of our expert instructors, assess and revitalize the effectiveness of your donor relations program.
With increased donor scrutiny on how campuses are allocating their resources and how their gifts are being used, the function of donor relations is more important to an advancement operation than ever before. Properly informing, communicating, and stewarding donors helps to ensure continuous giving. However, few institutions are strategic in identifying which donors need attention, and when and how that attention should be paid.
Join us in St. Louis to assess and revitalize the effectiveness of your donor relations program. Whether you are just getting your program started or are looking for an infusion of new ideas, this comprehensive conference will help you:
Identify which donor groups to prioritize
Effectively communicate with those groups
Work through tense situations with difficult donors
Integrate student philanthropy into your operations
WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING
To make the most of your conference experience, we recommend you bring various reports on LYBUNTs, SYBUNTs, and future donors. We also recommend you submit examples of “challenging scenarios” from your own experiences to inform a role playing session on Day 2. We will share more information with you prior to the conference about which specific donor information to bring.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This conference is ideal for all advancement professionals—especially those in donor relations—who are building or revamping a stewardship program. Our expert instructors represent the perspectives of both public and private institutions, large and small, and will provide useful advice for you whether you are new to the field or have worked in advancement for several years.
