Pack your bags! We’re going on a road trip!
In this fun and interactive session, Susan will lead participants on the harrowing but exciting road to creating constituencies where none exist. Using case studies, attendees will learn the four key steps for creating constituencies.
Whether novice or expert, all skill levels will enjoy the ride and leave knowing how to:
- identify an organization’s ideal donor
- determine where ideal donors congregate
- create effective donor communication strategies
- collect key data for donor cultivation.
Time will be given for a lively Q&A session.
