In today’s world of cluttered communications, fundraisers need to break through the chaos to inspire their current donor base and engage new donors in their mission.

This workshop will focus specifically on strategies for crafting donor messages and takes an “old school” approach; we’ll focus on core messaging and the impact that donors seek to understand, rather than just focusing on social media tactics. We will also explore tools to work effectively with your existing communications staff and spend time working on your pitch for new audiences.

Participants will learn to:

  • Craft a compelling message for your donors on why they should donate to your nonprofit
  • Develop strategies for implementing new and improved donor communications in print, online, and in-person pitches


This workshop is ideal for nonprofit professionals who are responsible for fundraising.
