New Frontiers for Donor Engagement

How is COVID changing donor engagement? Whether you are looking for new donors to your community foundation or partners to fund alongside your private foundation, every foundation leader needs to be thinking about donor engagement. Rather than talk about overarching trends as planned, we've shifted this session to look at some of the immediate factors that are changing donor engagement during this pandemic. Dr. Jason Franklin will share his advice on grappling with personal factors including donors facing their own mortality to coping with boredom, societal factors like how we grapple with uncertainty and navigate through a recession, and engagement factors including how collaboration is shifting and how our programming can help overcome isolation. All participants will also join facilitated conversation to surface the successes and tips from your peers in a lively group conversation.
