Fundraising for a New Era & Past Era Best Practices We Can’t Quit

The onset of COVID-19 turned many of our trusted fundraising best practices upside down – with large-scale events and face-to-face appointments feeling like a thing of the past for non-profits around the world. This call for innovation allowed us to virtually diminish geographic barriers and open doors for new fundraising streams. As much as things have changed, some things also stayed the same! Many tried and true campaign best practices are still a part of this new frontier of fundraising. Gain practical guidance you can start applying to your organization’s fundraising and communications efforts for 2021 and well beyond! This session is especially relevant for nonprofit fundraising, communications, and marketing staff.
