Do This, Not That: Appealing to Year-End Donors with Strategy and Creativity

Do This, Not That: Appealing to Year-End Donors with Strategy and Creativity

As the calendar year end approaches, mailboxes and social media will be filled to the brim with messages seeking financial support. How will you make sure that your organization's mission, story and call to action stand apart? What is your unique story? Your organization's emotional hook? How can the activities of your organization and volunteers support the year end appeal?

Attend this hands-on workshop with fundraising experts Steve Willmont and Hannah Miller, and develop the outline of a compelling year end appeal process. Attendees will explore the annual appeal production cycle, elements of a successful solicitation request, inspiration, appreciation and stewardship activities and how best to position their organization and its mission during the important holiday season.

Attendees are encouraged to bring stories of impact, client testimonials and past year's outreach efforts.

This workshop is facilitated by Hannah Miller and Steve Willmont of Netzel Grigsby Associates. Hannah Miller partners with nonprofit organizations by empowering them to tap their true potential and build a brighter future. Steve Willmont directs major fundraising campaigns, feasibility studies, and development planning and training activities for a wide spectrum of nonprofit organizations in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

There is no fee for Center for Nonprofit Leadership members, $55 for nonmembers.
