In this constantly changing world we are all living in, you need to stay nimble and creative in your approach to reaching out to your donors. You need to continue to ask for support, but how do you communicate urgency without sounding desperate?

During this hour and half session, we will explore how to -

  • Craft Intentional and clear messages that speak directly to your donors.

  • Segment your messages to communicate the importance of your nonprofit’s work and ask your donors for support using print appeals, e-appeals, social media and website,

  • Build a diverse and inclusive communications advisory team to review your messages and materials so that you are speaking to your multiple audiences with a voice that supports racial, gender, and economic justice.
