AFP TN, Southeastern Chapter - Monthly Meeting: Re-thinking Annual Giving

October 24, 2012

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 - "Re-thinking Annual Giving"

Presented by Jill Pranger, ACFRE, and Founder and President of Pranger Philanthropic

About the presentation:
 You know the importance of Annual Giving. You know that it helps develop major donors, capital donors, and even bequest donors. You know that regular, consistent, and repeat giving is the foundation of most successful fundraising programs. You know that without Annual Giving, your fundraising program would eventually cease to exist.

But, are you getting the most out of your Annual Giving program? Are you using every tool at your disposal to ensure maximum dollars and numbers of donors? Do you have a comprehensive plan for Annual Giving that frequently offers prospective donors an opportunity to participate in your organization’s mission and work?

Or…is your Annual Giving program on “auto-pilot”?

Join us for this interactive, instructive, and innovative program to discover ways to increase your annual giving results -- by re-thinking what “annual” really means. You’ll definitely get lots of new ideas!
