Learn the importance of relationship management and donor retention to push your fundraising to the next level. Effective donor cultivation and engagement is critical to the success of your non-profit, and maintaining relationships is the key to success for all aspects of a fundraising program. When donors are properly cultivated and stewarded, this often leads to larger gifts, a propensity to serve in leadership roles, and longer-term relationships. This session will explore the importance of relationship management, tips for engaging in active stewardship, and getting to the next ask.

1. Participants will learn the stages of relationship development, benchmarking best practices, and prioritizing donor relationships to build, develop, and grow a consistent donor base
2. Participants will learn how to tap into unrealized financial and leadership potential in existing relationships
3. Participants will learn how to anticipate and respond to critical questions, and the group will engage in an interactive discussion on strategies that work and components of successful next solicitations
