While many donor stewardship professionals are part of a large team or institution with vast resources and large budgets, those of us at small nonprofits find ourselves stewarding our donors without those luxuries. If your role at your nonprofit includes not only Donor Stewardship, but Annual Fundraising and Planned Giving, this session will show you how you can effectively engage donors while you juggle numerous priorities and constantly change hats throughout each day. Join this interactive presentation to learn how you can find creative ways to increase personalization and implement an outstanding stewardship program in 20 hours a week or less.
