What We Can Do Together
You don't have to go at this alone. I'll show you how to get off the hamster wheel of fundraising, get unstuck, and focus your time and energy in the right places to maximize your organization’s results leading to greater donor engagement and retention and way more FUN in your fundraising efforts.
Are you wanting more sponsors? Want to keep the sponsors you already have? Want to grow your current sponsors to higher levels of sponsorship? Oftentimes we engage with our sponsors from a very organizational centered perspective. With a shift in perspective and approach you can WOW your sponsors and engage with them in ways that center their experience and their needs.
This strategy gives you and your organization a deeper and more meaningful relationship with your sponsors and potentially turns them into larger and longer-lasting sponsors. Ready to WOW your sponsors and raise more through sponsorship than you ever thought possible?
Engagement and Retention
Most nonprofits spend a considerable amount of time trying to find new donors. But did you know it’s more cost effective to put those efforts into keeping the donors you have rather than chasing the elusive “shiny new donor”? And did you know that the longer a donor stays with your organization, the more likely they are to become a monthly donor or to even leave a bequest to your organization?
According the the Fundraising Effectiveness Project, on average, nonprofits are losing 55% of their donors each year. And of the donors they keep the gift retention is under 50% (meaning that half of the gifts coming in will be less than the year before). You can buck this trend by engaging with your donors in meaningful ways. Together we can make a plan to WOW your donors all yearlong and turn them into a donor of your organization for the long haul.
Do you emphasize your organization’s powerful stories at your event? Do you take time to carefully curate experiences for each type of donor at your event? Do you know how and when to communicate to your donors before, during, and after your event? Don’t let the biggest night of the year for your organization go by without taking every opportunity to WOW your donors.
Together we’ll work to develop a strategy to engage guests before, during, and after your event so your guests never stop talking about and thinking about your event all year long...and so that they can’t wait to come back next year, invite their friends, and give even more..
