Attract Monthly Donors to Your Cause

More and more nonprofits are successfully persuading donors to give monthly online, and the financial benefits are many―over time monthly donors give a lot more than other supporters; they are twice as likely to continue giving from one year to the next; and they usually renew automatically, greatly reducing a nonprofit’s expenses and staff time.

However, experts say that most donors won’t give to more than four groups on a monthly basis. As a result, it’s imperative to get ahead of the competition and persuade your supporters to give often.

Join us for a one-hour Webinar to hear how other nonprofits have increased revenues by enlisting loyal supporters, find out what steps charities need to take to attract monthly donors, and learn how to calculate the value of converting occasional donors into regular repeat supporters.

Diversify Your Fundraising Portfolio

How can you decide which activities fit well and are likely to bring success?

Join us for a Webinar that will help you set priorities for new fundraising efforts and develop a strategy that protects your organization from the drop of any one source of revenue.

Fundraising & the Female Donor

By almost every measure, women are more likely than men to contribute to nonprofits. And demographics are changing—more women than men now attend college, and close to half of the students pursuing advanced law, medical, and business degrees are women, according to the most recent census report.  

Yet women still are not asked to give to charities as often as men, and most charities rely on fundraising tactics preferred by men, even when soliciting female donors.

To learn how to tap into this often overlooked group of supporters, join The Chronicle of Philanthropy for this informative session.
