Next Month’s Webinar • July 9, 2013, 1pm Eastern: Donor Relations for Annual Giving Donors • Regardless of gift size, today’s annual fund donors expect more than a gift receipt acknowledging their contribution. Donors are looking to see the impact their philanthropy and the collective resources of the annual fund are having on the institution. As we recognize that retaining donors is essential for long-term success, creating robust stewardship programs for your annual fund donors across all levels is mission critical. In this session, we will explore the various messages and channels that have proven to be effective touches in annual fund stewardship. • Register Here, $25: http://www.anymeeting.com/PIID=E951DC85834B3B
