Course Description:

If there’s one thing we know, there are no two organizations who are the same which means how you fundraise and communicate with your donors and followers during Arizona Gives is different as well. This is your opportunity to ask your peers your most pressing questions. 

In this Arizona Gives roundtable discussion we will review how each nonprofit’s campaigns are created, how they’ve engage donors through email and social, how they may have utilized board members or fundraiser pages, how they’ve utilized the toolkit, and which campaign tactics worked best for the organizations.

Learning Objectives:

In this session, participants will:

  • Ideas on how to develop, create, and plan your own Arizona Gives campaign
  • Ideas on how to engage donors to reach donation goals
  • Ideas on how to involve staff and board members
  • Ideas on how to utilize the Arizona Gives Toolkit
  • Best practices for online fundraising campaigns
