Episode 30 – How to Say Thanks to Your Donors

Demonstrating gratitude to your donors may be your most important job as a fundraiser. Why? A happy donor gives a second, third, and fourth time. A well thanked donor tells their friends. Learn creative ways to thank your donors.

Episode 29 – Secrets to Effective Event Fundraising

At Food for the Hungry, we acquire tens of thousands of monthly donors each year from events. In this episode, you'll learn how we structure a sponsored event for the best possible outcome: a new monthly donor. Learn the format for the event, how to do an effective fundraising, and how to integrate volunteers.

Episode 27 – How to Acquire More Digital Donors

You must acquire new donors to survive. How many donors do you lose a year? Figuring out your donor attrition rate is a crucial metric that can determine the longevity of your charity. If you aren't acquiring enough new donors to make up for the ones you lose, your nonprofit's revenue will start to decline.
