Surprising Best Practices to Keep Donors Giving

Presented by: Lori L. Jacobwith, Fundraising Culture Change Expert & Master Storyteller | Ignited Fundraising

The plain & simple truth to why your donors stop giving: they lose interest. They just don’t feel their gift matters enough to keep giving. Our job, then, is to make certain each contact we have with our supporters makes them feel special. Whether you have a small, medium or large donor list — making them ALL feel special is a tall order.

This high-energy session will take a deep dive into some surprising best practices that will help you raise more money.  We’ll focus on how to make your regular communication stand out in the daily noise.

Plan to:

  • Take a look at your donor communication and stewardship practices from a different lens
  • Get re-inspired about your mission
  • Spend time sharing at least one “real-life” example of someone’s life that’s different because your nonprofit exists

Mind the Generational Gap: Qgiv’s Generational Giving Study

Presented by: Abby Jarvis, Nonprofit Education Manager | Qgiv

What motivates your donors? How can you build communications that appeal to all your constituents from the Greatest Generation to Gen Z? Can a single campaign transcend the rift between Baby Boomers and Millennials? And what the heck does Generation X want?

Come find out! This session will cover Qgiv’s 2020 Generational Giving Study and how you can use its findings to change the way you interact with your donors. You’ll learn:

  • How different donor segments prefer to communicate, donate, and keep in touch
  • How you can structure your next campaign to inspire donors of all ages
  • How to account for donor preferences in your follow-up and retention efforts
  • How to communicate with all generations to inspire action on Giving Tuesday

Appealing to different generations of donors is important, but it doesn’t have to be hard! Come learn how to target each of your communications to the different segments of your donor base.
