The pandemic has left many nonprofit professionals wondering “what’s next?”  And while we’re wringing our hands, many of our donors are feeling insecure as well.  Economic uncertainty may be affecting the giving of some; others are beginning to question the impact of their giving, shifting their gifts exclusively to organizations providing direct services. Most likely feel at least some disconnection from the organizations they have supported in the past.

During this session we will share some ideas for successful donor retention during these unusual times.  Please bring your ideas to share with the group, and examples of successful strategies the organizations you support have employed to maintain your connection.  Together, we (and our donors!) can get through this!
