  • Donor Retention Workshop

    August 13, 2018
    8-5:30 pm
    UA Foundation
    1815 Bragaw 

    Topics covered:

     Understand why organizations lose donors and money
     Learn how to retain & upgrade donors to increase fundraising
     Determine the effectiveness of your fundraising efforts
     Prepare a successful donor retention plan for your organization

    The AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop is based on data collected from the Fundraising Effectiveness Project. The annual survey indicates that nonprofits are losing nearly as many donors and gifts as they gain each year.

    This 8-hour workshop will include small group work on a fictional case study based on real fundraising data. The goal is for you to develop a donor retention plan. You will learn the value of tracking overall gains and losses in gifts and donors – and then use that information to develop cultivation strategies to improve donor retention at your organization.

    Who Should Attend?

    The AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop is designed for fundraising professionals who want to learn how to prepare a donor retention plan to keep and cultivate donors to increase fundraising success.

    Space is limited to first 25 participants
