Deborah will describe the Donor Lifecycle Map and how it might be used to create a strategic plan for your organization. If you share your answers to the following questions with her at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the session, we can use your information not only as actual case studies but also help you think about about how to use the Donor Lifecycle Map based on your data.
- How many new donors did you have in 2017 and 2018?
- How many of your new 2017 donors gave in 2018 and 2019?
- How many of your 2018 donors gave in 2019?
- What tools did you use in 2018 and 2019 to retain new donors?
This workshop will be especially helpful to attendees working to increase both the amount of money they raise and the number of donors who they retain over time
