Annual giving is the foundation of a nonprofit’s fundraising program, so it’s essential for your organization. Lighthouse Counsel President Jeff Jowdy and Senior Consultant David Snow lead us in this webinar. With decades of experience in growing annual giving in a variety of nonprofit and educational settings, they are here to share their wisdom.
Annual gifts are renewable contributions for operating support during a fiscal year. Annual giving is the foundation of your fundraising program, and it is a year-round process. It involves all phases of fundraising. These phases include planning, recruiting and training volunteers, major gift work, special events, stewardship, recognition, and thanking donors.
During this interactive webinar, we’ll look at how you can analyze your current efforts and financial standing to evaluate where you can improve. Then we will go over some annual giving strategies that can help your nonprofit’s fundraising. Specifically, we will talk about how to increase the number and size of annual gifts by following best practices in four key areas:
- Case Development
- Leadership Development
- Plan Development
We will also discuss steps your organization can take to see transformational increases in annual giving. Ultimately, these steps will help you expand the impact of your mission while you enhance your nonprofit’s culture of philanthropy.
