When good stewardship is the key to good fundraising, why don't we do more of it? Especially when we're worried about losing donors?

Stewardship is more than a thank you note. Every donor has a hand in our every success. Our job is both building better donors and retaining them.

The best prospects for future gifts are current donors. Well, yes, BUT the real reason for good stewardship is really . . . it is the right thing to do.

So why is stewardship often just an afterthought instead of an integral part of our development plan?

In our seminar I'll contrast stewarding the donor with stewarding the gift and how this fits into your overall and specific prospect plans.

Learn to retain and grow your donors in a tough economy!

I’ll discuss ongoing stewardship as part of enhancing major gift relationships and increasing our giver’s connectivity and enjoyment in their philanthropy.

We will highlight elements of a thoughtful stewardship plan that serves donors across the gift pyramid.

Participants will:

  • Learn the key elements of a thoughtful stewardship plan.
  • Hear examples of how good stewardship is practiced.
  • Discover the importance of donor satisfaction and how to satisfy donors.
  • Get new insights and strategies for retaining your donors.

Who Should Attend:
Development directors, development staff, major gift chairs, board members, major gift officers.
