Sheltering at Home Successes – A Day in the Life

Association Leaders

Many of us have been sheltering (working) at home for at least two weeks now. It’s important that we all do our part to “flatten the curve” we’ve all heard about related to COVID-19. It is a challenge for most people – to be “cooped up” in their homes. Human beings are social, so only seeing and interacting with the same people day after day can become challenging – no matter how much you love them.

How to Avoid Fundraising’s Quiet Killer: Donor Attrition

Speaker: Jay Wilkinson, CEO & Founder, Firespring

It doesn't take an industry professional to know that nonprofits highly depend on donations. The marketing emails, events, and website design are meant to attract new donors, when what we should be doing is trying to keep the donors we have. Teach a man donor acquisition and he'll get donations for the day--teach a man donor retention and he'll get donations for a lifetime. John Jay Wilkinson, CEO and founder of Firespring, and learn how to get donations for a lifetime. In this session, Jay will help us learn how to step off of the donor acquisition treadmill and rev up donor retention. Six out of ten donors give only once, but this doesn’t have to be your reality. Jay will help us understand how a 10% increase in donor retention will more than double the lifetime value of a donor and minimize our reliance on producing constant appeals for new donors.
