Stewardship at the Campaign Crossroads


(A workshop in the Public Humanities Professional Development Series)

A fundraising campaign can be transformative for a nonprofit organization. Entering or exiting a campaign is an excellent time to assess your stewardship and donor relations program, to fix what doesn't work and introduce new ideas. Let's talk about how to take advantage of pre- and post-campaign periods to plan for new directions in stewardship and donor relations. We'll look at specific ideas that can make a difference in attracting, engaging, and sustaining important donor relationships throughout and after a campaign. Bring your ideas and questions to enliven the discussion.
