Engaging Support: Making the Right Decisions with Confidence
This fast-paced presentation will center on questions many nonprofits are facing when it comes to engaging supporters, from corporate sponsors to donors to volunteers and influencers. What approaches do we alter during this challenging time and what must we change to keep moving forward?
It is a broad arena for sure! We will focus on three components:
- Lessons Learned Post 9-11: Understand how nonprofits responded when the country’s focus was elsewhere. What worked. What did not. And what insights will help us make the right decisions today when it comes to engagement planning.
- Evaluating Current Tactics: We will look at what is most likely to happen and why along with a series tough questions, largely focused events, campaigns and strategies. Pepper in case studies from different sized organizations and the right decisions for your organization’s more complex engagement challenges come to light.
- The Bigger Picture: In challenging times, nonprofit volunteers and leaders must come together around a process that organizes the outreach and stewardship of individual donors, corporate sponsors, and foundations. Walk through one model that works, even when folks are social distancing.
Examples and content will draw from various sized organizations in various sized markets. So, no one will be left out of the conversation. And board members are strongly encouraged to attend!
