AFP Vancouver Island AGM with Guest Speaker Vanessa Chase Lockshin 

After an unfortuate last minute cancelation last year, we are please to announce that Vanessa Chase Lockshin is our confirmed guest speaker for the 2020 AFP Vancouver Island AGM.


Asking is just one part of a successful fundraising program. The other part -- the big part -- is the relationship building that happens through cultivation and stewardship. If you work with annual level donors, much of this relationship building happens through the content and communications you send to your donors. 

But the question to be asking is -- is that content actually doing its job to help you build relationships?

Here’s what you’ll learn during this workshop: 

  • The essential role content and communications play in annual level giving
  • What types of content you can use to support relationship building with donors
  • 3 strategic content opportunities that can help you build relationships with donors


11:00 AM - Vanessa Chase Lockshin - Communications that Support Relationship Building
