Don't Erode E-Communications

Presented by Janice Moro, CFRE, CHRL, MBA

E-communications have necessary practical value for donor stewardship and fundraising but genuine and authentic communication within the digital age is at risk of being lost. Donors are feeling devalued, loyalty is dropping, and engagement is decreasing when we overly rely on hitting the “send” button and believe that the job is done. This session looks at leading corporate market research and customer service best practices that can be applied to donor communication strategies from Gen Y to Baby Boomers to build stronger donor support and deeper loyalty within a digital age. It outlines the tough but important reality that digital communications can demand more direct service and technical support in order to create the type of human-centered engagement that donors crave – and that donors need – if your organization is going to distinguish itself authentically within an ever increasing digital marketplace.

  • Learn different strategies to support stakeholders from different target demographics: Gen Y to Baby Boomers
