Limited Capacity seats available

Making donors feel great about the gifts they make should be simple right? Most of the time it is, but when it goes wrong, YIKES! Mary will share some cringe worthy stewardship stories and examples and then walk you through how to avoid those kinds of mishaps.

This session will focus on the things a major gift officer can do to avoid your organization being put on blast on twitter by a donor (or being an example of bad fundraising at the next WCFC). We’ll not only talk about how to avoid mistakes but also go through some great, simple stewardship ideas that are sure to make your donor smile. You’ll walk away from this session with; some real hands on ideas of simple ways to reach out and share impact with your supporters as well as the things you need to have in a gift agreement to ensure you capture (and then use) all the information you need to do a great job with stewardship.
