Most nonprofits receive a significant portion of their donations during the end of the year holiday season. Donors give generously during the holiday season, and usually you start off the New Year with just an obligatory thank you. Most nonprofits send newsletters to the donors throughout the year, but do not ask them to give again until it is almost the year end – so they're not really making any “ask” efforts for almost a year! And that plays an important part in making the beginning of the New Year a low revenue period for many organizations, including possibly yours.
Find out how to say goodbye to the New Year lull in donations in this enlightening webinar by nonprofit fundraising expert Shiree Skinner. Skinner will share the best practices of how to use the first quarter of the year to cultivate monthly donors. She will walk you through the ways of asking a donor, who, for example, gave $25 in December, to give $25 each month starting in the New Year, thereby turning that $25 donor into a $300 donor!
After attending this webinar, you will be ready to kick-off a monthly giving campaign that starts in January 2019! Therefore, instead of the first quarter being a slow time, you will gain monthly donors who will make a year-long commitment to your organization.
During the webinar, Skinner will share:
