Upcoming Workshops


Workshop: Maximizing Direct Mail Fundraising

January 27th & 28th, 2021 from 1-5:00pm ET (Online)

Despite the growth of digital fundraising in recent years, direct mail continues to be the number one driver of donors and dollars for most annual giving programs today. That’s why it’s so important to produce campaigns that balance timeless best practices with the latest and most innovative techniques. Doing so will not just increase the chances that your appeals will be opened, it will also ensure that they resonate with donors and produce results.

Workshop: Increasing Support from Parents

February 24th & 25th, 2021 from 1-5:00pm ET (Online)

Parents are an important source of philanthropic support for most educational institutions. But the window of opportunity to cultivate parent donors is often short—limited to the time when their children are in school. Identifying the strongest prospects, engaging them in meaningful ways, and soliciting them at the right time and for the right area will improve fundraising results today and increase the likelihood that parents will stay involved and supportive for years to come.
