Fund Stewardship: The Alpha and Omega of Donor Relations
Presented by Sarah Sims
It is the first thing your donor will encounter at your organization, and it is often the last factor that will determine if a donor gives again. We know it, and we say it every day – you can’t ask a donor for more money if you don’t steward the funds you already have. We can have beautiful events, polished communications, touching videos….but it all means nothing if we don’t steward our donor directed funds in a careful, thoughtful, and donor-centric manner. But you may be asking how? What do I need to look for? Who do I partner with? Join us as we explore the multifaceted components of fund stewardship and compliance, meaningful reporting, and the role that Donor Relations professionals must play in this arena.
