What if raising more donations for your nonprofit was simple and fast? 

 

Welcome to a monthly training series helping you raise more money in less time

  

Fundraising has never been more important or demanded so much courage. 

 

Is this you?  You're struggling to get in-person visits with donors.   Or get your foot in the door. 

You break into a cold sweat thinking about asking donors for money.  Your top prospects won't return your emails or phone calls.  You aren't sure which donors to focus on or how much you can realistically raise.  You've got whiplash from live events going virtual, then back to in-person, and now virtual again. 

Your patience for the term "pivot" ran out last year. 

Like it or not if you're going to succeed you must: 

✓ bravely make your case

✓ strengthen donor relationships

write the best appeals you’ve ever written

✓ zero in on your BEST prospects 

✓ solicit the big gifts with confidence  

cut through your donor’s crowded inbox to win their hearts, minds & wallets

How will you do it? 

Introducing the League of Extraordinary Fundraisers

A monthly membership program dedicated to helping you successfully fundraise in a crisis.

1 90-minute live workshop every month, private community, and immediate access to how-to templates, training, and guides to help you raise more money! 

February Workshop:  Stewardship that Boosts Revenue

Imagine donating your hard-earned money to a charity and never hearing back.  What if the only time a nonprofit communicated to you was when they wanted something from you? 

Sadly, this happens every day.  More than 80% of donors report that the charity they gave to never told them the outcome of their gift.  Is this you?  Do you even know? 

A stewardship plan is a set of business rules to thank and cultivate donor relationships.  Having a thoughtful, well-planned, and well-executed stewardship plan is your #1 tool to retain and upgrade your donors.  It’s your road map to becoming your donor’s favorite charity.  Without one donor relations are haphazard, spotty, and sloppy. 

Hey, you spend a lot of time and money acquiring new donors!  Make them loyal for life and boosts their gifts in this 90-minute “Make a Stewardship Plan” workshop. 

You’ll discover:

  • The ‘virtuous circle’ of fundraising and how it helps you raise more
  • Simple formulas to calculate first-time (and overall) donor retention
  • The gap between what you want to say and what donors want to hear
  • How to audit your current donor communications
  • What an ask-to-thank ratio is and how to calculate yours
  • A sample donor love communications calendar and sample stewardship plan template loaded with creative ideas to save you time and delight your donors
  • Examples of thank you call scripts, thank you letters and reporting back letters that keep donors coming back
  • Low tech and high-tech tools to maximize the personal touch for donors
  • Winning stewardship examples to inspire you

This live 90-minute workshop will be held Thursday, February 9 at 11 am CST.  Can’t make it live?  I got your back!  As soon as the workshop wraps you’ll have immediate access to the workshop, stewardship template, and workbook.

 WHAT YOU’LL GET:

  • A done-for-you stewardship plan

  • A 10-page how-to guide to create a stewardship plan      

  • 23 ways to shower your donors with love loaded with examples you can use immediately
