AFP Cocktails and Conversation:

Donor Stewardship on a Budget

January 17, 2018


ABOUT AFP COCKTAILS AND CONVERSATION:                                         

This year AFP St. Louis will be hosting a series of cocktail and coffee conversations on topics of interest to fundraisers. These casual get-togethers will give members a chance to network, hear from advanced professionals and ask questions that pertain to your needs. We hope you will join us for our first Cocktails and Conversation event this month.


Donor stewardship is the key to successful fundraising and ignored at the peril of the fundraiser.

The good news is that excellent donor stewardship--and why waste precious resources on anything but the best--is relatively inexpensive and fairly costly if ignored.

Start the new year with learning ways to implement a “best-practices” donor stewardship program on a budget.
