The Training Experience

 

Virtual Donor Cultivation Events is a training designed for fundraisers and organizational leaders who are looking for innovative ways to engage donors online and to create virtual donor experiences on Zoom.

 

Because: The global pandemic has radically changed the way we work as fundraisers and nonprofit leaders. It is expected that much of 2020 will be marked by the need for social distancing. Even as restrictions will be removed or adjusted, we anticipate changes in how we meet and engage with our most loyal supporters and major funders.

 

What do you do without in-person parlor meetings, cocktail parties, donor briefings, and even donor mission trips? Webinars alone will not suffice to bring donors into the conversation, to build loyalty to your organization, and create social connections.

 

The Answer: Interactive Virtual Donor Cultivation Events on Zoom!

 

In this training, Tanja will introduce you to live virtual alternatives to your thoughtfully crafted in-person cultivation events where personal connections can be made and future giving decisions formed.

 

Tanja will invite you to imagine new ways of involving your donors beyond webinars and video conferencing. And, she will show you how to actively engage your donors in the experience using powerful facilitation techniques, zoom breakout rooms, and chat.

 

Learn together with other fundraising professionals how to overcome the inherent challenge of geographic distance and the virtuality of being online. Explore the possibilities for using the virtual space and Zoom to engage your donors and prospects. And seize the opportunity to set your organization apart by doing something new and exciting. Learn how to be an innovator by boosting your fundraising today!

  • Powerful ideas for meaningful and engaging live virtual donor cultivation events

  • Energizing opportunities for building community and increasing donor affiliation

  • Practical tips for setting your virtual donor events up for success
