Nonprofits and the California Consumer Privacy Act

by Kevin Peters

In the past decade, our lives have become more "extremely online." From Myspace to Facebook to whatever hip new app the kids are into these days, we keep putting additional little bits of ourselves out into the public information space. But recently, more and more people have become aware of the dangers of oversharing. Data privacy laws have sprung up in response.

How to Build Relationships With New Donors (NEW)

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Relationships are the life-blood of the charitable sector. It doesn't really matter what segment of the market you work in (individuals, foundations, corporate giving, or even online fundraising). A successful and long-lasting donor partnership almost always boils down to a few key ingredients: a basic alignment of interest, engagement with the right stakeholder, ongoing cultivation/stewardship, and—of course—a well-timed "ask." This webinar will show you how to develop your "prospect pipeline," bring new donors to the table, and enable repeat giving. Participants will learn how to assess the alignment of a prospect, develop an optimal outreach strategy for each prospect, engage effectively with their prospects over time, and recognize and steward donors to enable long-term giving. This webinar is targeted towards beginner to intermediate-level grantwriters, major gift officers, executive directors, board members, and prospect researchers.
