Coffee Talk: Building Resilience Into Your Year-End Fundraising

Listen as your peers discuss building resilience into their year-end fundraising. We identify strategies that are working well in our current climate, and ways in which people are learning, improving, and looking forward.

Some questions we cover:

  • How has your organization adjusted your normal approach to year-end fundraising? Are you pursuing any new collaborations?
  • How is storytelling playing a role in your year-end efforts? How are you sharing your COVID-19 story?
  • What are some ways you are working to build confidence among your donors when there is so much uncertainty right now?
  • What are you looking forward to in 2021?

To continue the conversation from the session, check out this discussion on Compass - A Foundant Community.
