Your fundraising message in current times

25 January 2021

Fundraising is ineffective when it’s a one-way process.

To be successful, you need to understand the audience and communicate the right information to tap into the potential donor or supporter’s needs and motivations. 
 
Before asking for support, you need to understand the motivations of a potential donor or funder so that it’s a mutually beneficial experience to get the ‘yes’.  
 
The webinar focuses on:
 
  • The current times we are operating in.
  • Understanding the motivations and needs of donors/funders.
  • Delivering the right message; the case for why someone should support your organisation.  
  • How to communicate the impact of the gift, the difference it will make and who will benefit. 
Fundraising has certainly been changing during the COVID-19 pandemic and this session will share some current thoughts.
