A message from Aaron Ruston
In today’s fluctuating investment markets, apparent economic uncertainty, and all time high personal debt loads, your donors and constituents are often hesitant to commit to your cause at the levels they would really like to. How do you compete with all of the other charities looking to access the seemingly limited resources of the donors? How do we make the donor aware of ways they can help which will not negatively affect their overall plans and in fact can serve to solidify their current as well as future planning needs? How do you bring your board on side in even greater ways and work with them to develop broader area of contacts? The answer is through the education of all parties involved from the board members to the donors themselves. The incorporating of efficient and strategic plans to maximize your opportunities while minimizing your organizational costs allows you to realize and exceed your ministry objectives.
In our sessions we will address the educating of donors as well as internal staff in methods to increase giving to your cause. There will be templates of forms and processes included for you to take back to your offices and provide, with some planning, a solid addition to your existing funding and strategic model.
