What’s that in the air? It’s the smell of #Tech4Good!
NetSquared Vancouver is really excited to bring you a trio of workshops this fall that focus on digital fundraising.
September 11: CRMs for Nonprofits – Abandoning Excel for a grown-up CRM
It can be difficult for smaller organizations to follow expert advice and best practices for adopting and optimizing supporter relationships with a customer relationship management (CRM) platform, like Raiser’s Edge, Salesforce, Netsuite, NationBuilder or Keela.
When is the right moment to make the leap from a spreadsheet or ad hoc system to a CRM solution? And, which platform is the right fit for your organization?
This session features on-stage interviews with people who have confronted all sides of the CRM question: from within orgs and as consultants to them. Attendees will gain wisdom about when to adopt a CRM and what questions to ask to make the right infrastructure decisions for their organizations.
October 10: Donor Retention Best Practices
A strong fundraising program is an essential part of building a thriving non-profit. But when you have a small team and limited resources it can be hard to know where to focus.
In this presentation, Fawkes + Holly will offer research and experience on how to retain the donors you’ve worked so hard to acquire. You’ll leave the sessions feeling encouraged, equipped and armed with practical tools you can start implementing first thing Monday morning.
November 6: How to Maximize Data to Enhance Your Fundraising Programs and Campaigns
In this session, campaigners and fundraisers from any size organization will learn to use big data in a way they haven’t before. They will learn how to better target their messaging to influence people within their organization’s community to encourage them to give a gift or volunteer.
Whether through a direct mail appeal, cross fundraising approach or a face to face ask, data can help.
