Having a solid plan for end of year (EOY) giving is crucial to the success of your fundraising efforts. Now more than ever, we need to get both creative and strategic with how our solicitations inspire donors to both renew and increase their support. Our presenters will share data driven methods to help attendees fine-tune their EOY solicitation strategies in ways that allow you to be both more effective and efficient. Attendees will also learn how to use their own data to determine which individuals are more likely to make a gift and how to create more donor-centric solicitation strategies. Whether you are unsure of what lies in your data or you live inside of your data day in and day out, you will leave with tools that you can use year after year.
