Listening And Talking To Donors: Applying Research To Reality

Use promo code AFP2021 when registering

Program Description
In conjunction with AFP Westchester Chapter, the goal of this presentation is to educate professional fundraisers about the importance of listening and talking during the qualification and cultivations phases of our work.  In addition to discussing this topic, we’re able to facilitate a small number (based on time) of hands-on activities to further drive home the importance of listening and talking.  Leaders within non-profit organizations spend a great deal of time and energy ensuring that their organization’s mission and vision are communicated widely and accurately. While that approach is effective to build trust within your community, a more personalized approach must be taken when building individual donor relationships. Instead of communicating to donors and prospects, we must listen and communicate with them to be most effective and to ultimately reach our goal.
