Coffee Talk: Donor Engagement in the Year 2020

Listen as your peers discuss donor engagement and fundraising in 2020. They identify strategies that are working well in our current climate, and ways in which people are learning and improving.

Some questions we cover:

  • Are you anticipating any long-term effects of the current climate on your organization? How are you addressing them?
  • Have you held your major annual event this year? What did you do? How was it different? Was it successful? What did you learn?
  • How is your organization responding to the current conversation around equity/diversity/inclusion?

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