Even the best-run fundraising programs have a few leaks that need to be plugged. In this session, you’ll learn how to perform an audit of your fundraising program, and why it’s important.
In our day-to-day work, it’s easy to get caught up in achieving goals, pleasing volunteers, and acting on the concerns of our more vocal stakeholders. But that can lead us to getting off track. Are we really as donor-centric as we could be? Are we practicing donor love? Are we seamlessly taking our donors on a supporter journey that leads them to higher orders of giving?
It’s time to step back, take stock, and figure out what’s working and what isn’t.
Please join Leah Eustace as she takes you through, step-by-step, her process for evaluating what’s been done, determining the leaks in the process, and setting programs up for future success. She’ll share her top ten things that are holding your program back, and provide solutions to get you back on track.
