Effective storytelling can warm hearts, shift moods, and inspire action-but crafting your story can be a daunting task! In this webinar, hear from community foundations who have gone beyond basic communications to transform their messaging through storytelling.
Resource Development & Fundraising
In this webinar you will learn: why CSAs are important to the future of our communities; evidence about the impact of CSAs, and about innovative programming that seeks to address the limitations of traditional scholarship and financial aid programs through CSAs.
Donors are giving more money online, engaging in collaborative giving, and giving across generations. How can community foundations keep up and flourish amidst these changing dynamics? We will explore the major trends affecting new donor engagement and the various ways community foundations are responding to grow their giving and increase their impact.
The end of the calendar year inspires charitable giving, as evidenced by the stacks of solicitations that arrive in our mailboxes. And most of us approach the inevitable appeal in the same way (usually hurriedly, as if taken by surprise or perfunctorily, as if merely an obligation). But what if we were to look at it with fresh eyes? What if we could stand out in the crowd? Learn about strategies to do just that including: developing your year-end strategy and communications plan; messaging and storytelling; educating donors; and positioning your board as year-end giving ambassadors. Consider the power of Giving Days and ways to analyze and segment your database
Do you receive questions and inquires about planned gifts from donors or professional advisors? Do you need a bequest brochure for a donor meeting or seminar? What marketing resources are available since the IRA Rollover is now permanent? In this webinar, Chris Sizemore with Endowment Development Services (EDS) provides an overview of the e-Booklets tool, including ideas for utilizing this valuable resource with various target audiences. Chris will also share other budget-friendly ideas for marketing planned gifts to donors and allied professionals. e-Booklets is a free resource to Indiana community foundations.
When it comes to crafting strategic communications, more isn’t always better. Targeted communications to donors often means doing less, more deliberately and with a custom touch. But where do you begin when honing in on a targeted approach? Learn how one foundation has seen tangible results from implementing a targeted communication plan, and the steps they took to achieve it.
