Keeping Your Volunteer Fundraisers Happy and Engaged Year-Round

People who will help you fundraise for your cause from their own families, friends, and colleagues are some of your most valuable assets. So why do so many nonprofits treat these extraordinarily generous people like just another name on the mailing list?

At this conference, you’ll learn how to communicate with your volunteer fundraisers not just when you need something from them, but year-round. You’ll outline your own communications plan emphasizing ways to make these volunteers feel included, appreciated, and in the know every month of the year. You’ll make your own life easier, raise more money, and build an engaged community of supporters who’d name your organization as their favorite cause.
