Do you want more donors? The path to more donors starts with generating more leads.

While there are plenty of ways to generate more leads, there are only a handful that actually attract the best prospects. These are methods that attract donors to you, instead of you chasing them, which makes fundraising easy and, yes, FUN!

Too often, nonprofit leaders spend time and money trying to convince people to care instead of connecting to like-minded prospects. They are doing a whole lot of work and not getting much back for it.

Donor Attraction Forum is a select group of experts who know how to generate REAL results. So, you can stop chasing donors and start attracting them so you can ask for and receive all you want, need and deserve.

This is a free, LIVE, virtual event – join from the privacy of your home office, in your comfy clothes. Stay for both days, or just a few sessions – whatever works for you. And because it’s LIVE, you’ll be able to ask questions of each expert. You’ll walk away with actionable strategies you can start using immediately.

You'll learn:

  • Video and Events — create exceptional experiences to inspire new donors
  • Auctions — how to find new revenue and donors at your next auction
  • Data Mining — segmentation strategies to find new prospects
  • Storytelling — using stories to connect with new donors
  • Marketing — generate support for your marketing efforts to increase impact
  • Major Gifts — finding major donors in your current database
  • Grants — building relationships with grantmakers…it’s not that hard!
  • Corporate Sponsors – engaging sponsors on a deeper level (they are people too!)
  • Influence — how to best connect with loyal, long-term donors
