An effective annual giving program is necessary for successful and sustainable fundraising for all organizations, including independent schools. Learn how to take your annual appeal beyond a year-end mailing and transform your annual giving. Join us for a presentation and roundtable discussion to learn about and share best practices for annual giving requests and marketing materials, donor communication and follow up, donor segmentation and targeted requests, volunteer engagement, and thanking your donors. We’ll also discuss alumni engagement strategies and how to leverage alumni to support your annual giving program.
