Inspired by Jim Collin’s ‘Good to Great’ methodology, learn the process for evolving your online fundraising program into one that produces lasting change and results. It starts with 10 steps that any organization can implement with the right planning and technology. This session doesn’t just focus on tactics like sending a welcome series or eer to peer events, but ways your organization can create long term success by changing the fundraising culture. You will also learn about the latest trends in US giving and how it impacts efforts today.

Donors have many choices today so nonprofit organizations are recruiting their constituents to help them inspire donors to give. The strategy is classic peer-to-peer fundraising, but organizations are being more creative than ever with the execution. From special events to do-it-yourself fundraising, there are so many options to integrate Peer to Peer fundraising into your organization’s revenue stream that you may not know where to start. During this time, we will give you an overview of the latest trends and industry best practices in Peer to Peer Fundraising and then help you build the road map your organization needs to either start a new campaign or enhance your current ones.
