Fundraising Trends 2020 Auburn NY


FLGIC Friday: 3 Fundraising Trends to Capitalize on in 2020
January 31st – 9am-10:30am

With the year-end giving season behind you, the New Year presents an opportunity to press pause and evaluate what’s working, what’s not working, and opportunities to improve.

To help nonprofits up-level their annual fundraising strategies, this pre-recorded webinar will share 2020 fundraising trends nonprofits can capitalize on in the new year. You’ll learn how to incorporate these trends into your fundraising strategy and examples from nonprofits who are already ahead of the curve.

Upon completion of this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Determine how your organization can make the giving experience more personal and less transactional for donors
  • Create authentic connections between donors and beneficiaries
  • Explain how to create opportunities to give in everyday shopping experiences
  • Prepare for the resurgence of the “election effect”

This event is free and open to the public.

Seating is limited. Register today!
