Peer to Peer (P2P) fundraising campaigns are now being used in many organizations. They are a great way to enhance fundraising while expanding mission recognition. People who believe in your cause are willing to volunteer their time to help raise funds, commit to setting up personal campaign pages, soliciting donations from their networks, and marketing the campaign. Giving Days, now a global movement, elicit inspiration to give much like P2P campaigns do. Wow – a treasure trove of new donors!
But how do you get them to keep giving to your organization? How about converting them from one-time gifts to giving monthly? Participants will gain an understanding who and what monthly donors are and learn how to implement a monthly giving program as part of their overall communication strategy.
Learn how to build a monthly donor roadmap to use as a tool along with a monthly donor retention playbook and a monthly donor planner.
