Love your donors and they’ll love you back!
The start of a new year is the perfect time to review and refresh your donor relations, engagement and stewardship plans. Kristen and Pam will walk the group through the core elements that should be included in any donor relations plan - acknowledgements, stewardship and impact reporting, recognition and engagement - and provide the framework needed to develop or enhance your existing plan for the coming year and beyond. You’ll leave with a practical, simple, hands-on plan that can be easily executed in a small shop. Join us for an engaging and interactive workshop and learn how you can love your donors.
