Donor transiency is perhaps the single most catastrophic element in today's fundraising world. In this highly-anticipated webinar, John Greenhoe, CFRE, will examine the trend of donor attrition and provide helpful major-gift focused strategies to keep your benefactors. He will share personal experiences and examples from the philanthropy world that illustrate how thoughtful bond-building measures can lead to dramatic increases in donor retention, as well as transformational major and planned gifts.
