Fundraising in Challenging Times- To Acquire and Cultivate Lifetime Donors

AIM: To unlock the secrets and share best practices and techniques so that NGOs of all sizes can take up direct response fundraising in a multitude of traditional channels.

In this fast-moving, interactive workshop, you will be introduced to the secret methods, tricks and techniques used by two of the world’s leading fundraisers to achieve higher acquisition rates and lasting donor loyalty at a time of generally declining results and greater government regulation.

In recent years, with more competitors entering the marketplace and tougher government regulations threatening them, traditional charities have been experiencing declines in the results from traditional fundraising channels such as direct mail, face-to-face and telemarketing.

Richard Pordes and Kunal Verma take you to the leading edge of individual donor acquisition and retention. Their “Twenty Great Ideas” represent the tip of the iceberg of new, revitalized direct response
strategies which will bring you amazingly rewarding results. Pordes and Verma’s formulae for success will breathe new life into the direct response fundraising you do, or would like to do each day.
