Learning & Event Calendar
This webinar series will take place Tuesdays, June 4 and June 11 from 2-3 p.m. CT.
NDANO is pleased to partner with Washington Nonprofits to offer you this two-part webinar series.
In fundraising, it is all about relationships...right?
Fundraising is about getting to know your donors' values, beliefs, and experiences. Knowing and understanding their generational tendencies (i.e. Matures, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z) is one way to help build stronger relationships.
Learn the characteristic differences between each generation and how to build upon those in your development and communications plan implementation. Develop your events to target audiences and segment your appeals to speak the language of your donors. For example, why send a direct mail piece to a Millennial, if they don't have a checkbook? We will talk about social media platforms too, and how to effectively boost your donor engagement.
Our world keeps changing and as nonprofit organizations we need to be nimble and continue to adjust our approach, staying true to the fundamental rule of fundraising: it's all about the people.
• Knowledge about each of the five generations and their tendencies to apply to your own donor data
• Fundraising strategies to address each generation in a targeted way
• New ideas on how to engage your audience through different social media platforms, with a generational lens
• Reasons why personalizing and segmenting your donor development and communications activities by generation will yield deeper relationships with your donors
All sessions take place Tuesdays from 2-3 p.m. CT.
Session 1 - June 4
Review of the different generational categories (i.e. Matures, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z). Learn the different characteristics between each generation and how to build upon those in your development and communications implementation plan. Develop your events to target audiences and segment your appeals to speak the language of your donors.
Session 2 - June 11
Focus on “old” and new ideas to engage your generational audiences through different mediums. There are traditional, tried, and true fundraising methods we can rely on and there are new and emerging strategies to complement the best practices, during this session take a look at both. Personalization and segmentation will increase your fundraising success.
Sessions will be recorded and the recordings will be made available to all registered participants. Participants who are unable to attend one or more of the sessions will still have access to all course materials.
