July Members Luncheon

11:30am - 1:00pm
The Fort Worth Club
12th Floor
306 West Seventh Street
Fort Worth, TX 76102

Program Title:
      "Sustainers in Focus - The real value of giving programs: online, monthly, and annual gifts"

Annual giving programs take time, energy and resources to create and sustain. Many nonprofit execs find themselves questioning the ROI for giving programs.  This month we’ve got sustainers in focus -- who are they, how do we acquire and keep them and what we should be doing to deepen the relationship between these loyal givers and our organizations.  We’ll take a look at some of the latest statistics on donor retention and giving program ROI, as well as share best practices on how a giving program fits into your overall development plan.

Joining Missy in this conversation is Andy Suther from DonorSearch, a company that provides wealth and philanthropy screening services, analytics, and fundraising solutions to nonprofits.
