Crisis most likely will hurt fundraising in the coming weeks and months. Some of the damage is unavoidable. But not all of it. In fact, many of the most destructive and long-lasting impacts of the crisis are completely avoidable.
This nonprofit webinar will help you separate the things you can’t control in this crisis from the things you can control. Knowing the difference -- and acting on it -- can help your organization.
I’ve worked through every fundraising crisis of the last 30 years, including the Financial Crisis of 2008, the 9/11 attacks in 2001 (with the related anthrax scare), and more natural and manmade disasters than I can count. And let me tell you this: When you approach the crisis in an eyes-open and no-panic way, you can get through it. In some cases, you can do some of the most effective fundraising of your career!
During This Nonprofit Webinar You Will Learn:
- How to assess your organization’s response to the crisis -- and how to communicate that to your donors in a compelling way.
- How to make up for revenue lost due to cancellations (Canceling events, selling tickets etc).
- How to empower and encourage your donors -- they are afraid too!
- Most important: How to keep fear from overwhelming your organization’s future.
