As part of our 2014 Nurturing Nonprofits Learning Series, we’re going to look at Donor Development with Melanie J. Norton.

Focus Areas for Effective Development

Part one of this session will take a look at donor motivation and share the latest information on who gives and why.  How do you know where to focus your efforts and most effectively use these precious resources?  And how do you translate this focus into increased philanthropic dollars for your organization? 

Introducing Planned Giving into your donor conversations.  In the second half, you’ll discover tools and tips to help you provide the full range of giving opportunities to your donors and prospects.  As an important partner of major and annual giving, a robust planned giving program is a chief component of any development operation and a strong deferred gift pipeline provides financial stability for your organization. 

Cost is $35 per session
