  1. 1. The Blanket Approach to Cultivating and Stewarding Your Donors Lynne M. Wester @donorguru Director of Stewardship and Donor Recognition Yeshiva University
  2. 2. 2 Donor Recognition and Stewardship • Is there a better way to do this? • What are some ways that we can better serve our donors? • What is someone else doing that we’re not? • Is there an app for that? • Making Innovation a Priority
  3. 3. Who are we talking about? • Non Scholarship Donors • High Level Annual Donors • Donors to Unrestricted Funds • People Falling through the Cracks 3
  4. 4. Goals • Make donors feel sincerely thanked for their generosity and support for your mission. • Deepen donor commitment to and understanding of your mission and organization. • Provide donors with the public recognition they desire and value. • Inspire donors to give again-at higher and higher levels of support. • Encourage or challenge other donors or potential donors to match the giving of their peers. • Set benchmarks for giving to your organization. • Reinforce a culture of philanthropy, rather than setting a tone of quid pro quo. • Keep you within your budget limits --while not compromising the tax deductibility of your donor’s gift. 4
