Communicating with Alumni and Donors During the COVID-19 Pandemic (FREE Recording)


As school advancement teams adjust to the COVID-19 Pandemic, one of the many challenges they face is how to best communicate with alumni and donors. To explore this issue, Dan Allenby (AGN) led a conversation with industry experts Reggie Bustinza (Northern Illinois U.), Vanessa DiCarlo Carta (UMass Boston), and Laura Tepper (Penn Law) in which they shared their experiences, offered perspectives, and tackled some of the following questions:

  • What are the most appropriate messages and channels for communicating with constituents?
  • When and how should you go about postponing events—or can you simply hold them virtually?
  • What’s the best way for advancement units to stay in sync with deans, presidents, boards, and other institutional leaders?
  • How can advancement teams remain focused and productive as they work from home?
  • And more!
