"Win Your Donor’s Affection with a Strategy that Matters"

Friday, May 15th, 2020. - 12:00pm

Presenter: Karla Raines, Corona Insights


Why does your organization matter? Why should it matter to me?

Every time a donor considers your purpose-driven brand and offerings, they ask these two questions. “Why” is the tape running in the back of their minds. Do you know their answers? You can’t afford not to. Welcome to the customer zeitgeist. Donors are dialed-in 24/7, 365. That was true before the pandemic and even more so today since online is our lifeline. Once you understand your donor holistically, you view choice from their perspective. You embrace a customer mindset. What does customer mindset mean for your fundraising strategy? Everything. Mindset determines what matters.
