Donors are essential in the not-for-profit world, allowing us to do our important work with greater impact. They deserve to be taken care of with the utmost respect and gratitude. In this course, you will learn ways to cultivate donors – engaging prospects and building a relationship prior to your ask. We will look deeply at donor stewardship through an analytical lens to see how you can marry the art and science of fundraising. Learning how to deepen your donors’ relationship with your organization will take your organization from transactional fundraising to relationship fundraising which equals sustainability.
