For most nonprofits, individual donors are their bread and butter when it comes to raising funds. This workshop familiarizes students with the specifics of creation, enhancement, and improvement of that essential relationship between nonprofit organizations and their donors. Aspects of the donor/recipient bond will be examined as they relate to different categories of individual donors: your prospects, casual donors, major supporters, board members, and lapsed donors. The full range of donor relations will be explored, with highly practical advice and interactive exercises incorporated to reinforce what is learned.
