The Value of Donor Acknowledgment—Don’t Take Gratitude for Granted

A common fundraising mistake made by nonprofits is focusing on acquiring donors and not paying attention to donors they already have. The donor relations cycle includes both cultivation AND acknowledgment. The prompt expression of gratitude should be a structured part of your fundraising system. But where do you start? How can you fit thanking donors into your day-to-day activities?

This webinar will be facilitated by Denise Clark, Telluride-based nonprofit consultant and coach. We will explore how to acknowledge donors and incorporate gratitude into your fundraising program. We will discuss creative ways to thank donors and why acknowledgment is key in turning your supporters into loyal, recurring donors.

Planned Giving For Small Nonprofits with Stan Yogi, of Roth & Klein Consulting

Join National Speaker Stan Yogi of Klein & Roth Consulting for a customized approach to nonprofit fundraising.

Do you dream of a wealthy benefactor leaving your organization $1 million in their will? Chances of that happening will increase greatly if you actively ask supporters for estate gifts. We are in the midst of the greatest generational wealth transfer in U.S. history. Wouldn’t you like some of that wealth directed towards your efforts? Even on a small budget your organization can reap large rewards by encouraging supporters to remember your group in their estate plans.

Description: During this two-hour online workshop, you will learn about various legacy gift options, the infrastructure that should be in place before launching a planned giving program, ways of encouraging donors to make estate gifts, maintaining relationships with planned giving donors, and the administration of planned gifts after a supporter passes away.

This workshop is designed to demystify planned giving and to provide easy-to-implement strategies to encourage estate gifts. It is especially suited for organizations with an established base of at least 100 donors who contribute regularly, regardless of the size of their gifts.

Foundations in Equity with The Gemini Group

This interactive session is designed to deeply educate all participants on the horrific and insidious racial history and how the ghosts of the past are foundational to, and still exist in present-day policies, practices and procedures. This is done with a focus on the institutional and systemic aspects of racism. It is not done from an approach of “blame” or instilling “guilt” neither of which are specifically beneficial to changing outcomes, and equity is concerned with outcomes, not intent. It addresses values and how to lead, and create or influence policy, from an equity perspective or using an Equity Lens and demonstrates how to apply equity principles across any identity.
