Demonstrate Impact, Be Transparent, Retain and Attract Donors:  The New Fundraising Paradigm

In this workshop, we will take the attendees through the cycle of fundraising which is based on "demonstrating impact to the donors".  In other words, how do we show or prove to donors the impact they have been able to make with their donations?  We will talk about the psychological and the consumer behavior aspects which are often neglected in fundraising, the notion of "completing the story", the benefits, and the tools that are now available to automate and help with demonstrating impact to donors. Attendees will understand how the fundraising landscape is changing, what the new generation requires, and how to bring the individual donors back.  They can also expect to learn some modern ways of fundraising and the automated tools that are now at their disposal.
