Audioconference: Keep Your Donors Part 2: The Secrets of Successful
Thursday, September 18, 2008
10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Presenter: Tom Ahern, ABC
Location: Centro Latino (audio only)
Improved donor retention and increased giving depend heavily on one thing: doing
your donor communications the right way. This session, taught by one of North
America's leading experts, shows you exactly what it takes to tune up your "donor-
communications" program into a high-performance machine. Great donor
communications cost no more than poor communications. All that's required is
some training. This webconference, based on a landmark new book from
AFP/Wiley, teaches you the essentials of communicating well with donors. You'll
learn what donors really care about; why reading is not the point of
communications (shocking!); and how emotions dominate giving decisions. You'll
be introduced to planning for success and measuring your effectiveness. And you'll
discover the real role of donor newsletters (virtually every organization gets this
wrong). This is totally practical. It applies the latest research. It teaches you proven
practices and tips from the world's top fundraising communicators.
Target Audience: Entry to mid-level
