Upcoming Sessions

Solicitation Mailing

Intermediate

The busy fundraising season will soon be upon us! Join us to refresh your skills on creating meaningful solicitation letters from Bloomerang along with recommended filters to select the constituents most likely to respond and give to your organization. If you use a mail house, we will also go over preparing a file for you to send them, and how to create interactions for them.

Tue 2/25 – 2:30 pm eastern

Fri 2/28 – 11:00 am eastern

List Segmentation

Advanced

It’s that time of the year! If you are getting ready to plan your spring appeals to your constituents, you won’t want to miss Ron Newlin’s session on pulling out the right group of people from Bloomerang for your mailings and appeals. The class will take a look at interests, frequency of giving, and average gift size as means of segmenting your list.

Tue 3/3 – 2:30 pm eastern

Fri 3/6 – 11:00 am eastern

I took the “Creating Letters” session awhile ago, but needed a refresher as we haven’t done thank yous through Bloomerang yet. We’re about to start doing thank yous through Bloomerang, so this was an excellent refresher. Thank you!

Definitely need to retake the “Adding and Editing Timeline Information” class as it was filled with so much great information. Dorothy is a great teacher – thank you!
