With physical distancing measures in place in nearly every corner of America, development teams need to think about new ways to connect with prospects, donors, alumni, parents, patients, staff, and friends. An increasingly popular fundraising trend—crowdsourcing and day of giving campaigns organized online—are more relevant and useful today than ever before. There’s never been a better time to connect with people, share your mission, and engage new donors—all virtually.
Join us for this Gonser Gerber Institute webinar, part of our Advancement and COVID-19 Series, where we’ll share ways to use crowdsourcing as an effective method of communicating and fundraising.
Topics we will cover include:
- What COVID-19 means for our programs
- Social distancing and advancement
- Crowdsourcing opportunities
- What should your goals be for an online giving campaign
- Social media
The fee for this webinar is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber Advancement Consulting, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.
