ACQUIRING A NEW KIND OF DONOR FOR FUTURE-PROOF FUNDRAISING

Younger. Higher income. More diverse. Acquiring new donors who don’t look like our existing ones is the key to future-proof fundraising, but it’s also one of the hardest things to do effectively.

Legacy prospecting tools built on prior transaction behavior largely ignore brand new donors with no prior giving history, so Wiland and two partner organizations took on the challenge of identifying and acquiring a new type of younger, higher earning, and more diverse donor.

Learn how this new group of prospects was identified and how they behave philanthropically. Then, see the result of testing by these organizations to attract a new multichannel prospect universe hiding in plain sight.

FINDING STABILITY IN UNCERTAIN TIMES

In March 2020, the nonprofit community was preparing for uncertainty. The list of unknowns was long, from loss of fundraising channels to economic destabilization to a wide array of fundraising scenarios nonprofits had never faced before. A key theme emerged in 2020 that applies to our current economic climate: To withstand periods of uncertainty and strain, fundraising organizations must find stability by building a strong, wide base of supporters.

In this session, Paige Grainger, Consultant and Team lead at Blackbaud, will share insights gleaned from past periods of economic insecurity to help nonprofits navigate potential choppy financial waters ahead. She will focus on how fundraising organizations can become more highly adaptive to gains, losses, and changes by leveraging economic and donor data from the following:

•            Research

•            Analytics

•            Benchmarking

In addition to preparing for the unknown economic challenges of tomorrow, Grainger will share thoughts on how the nonprofit community can grow from trying times, including sustaining and growing donor rolls when recession looms. Her focus on stability will guide nonprofits to best position themselves to meet the challenges of the future head-on.

YOU HAVE ARRIVED AT YOUR DESTINATION | FROM MULTI TO OMNI

The past two years have been a remarkable time for our industry in many ways, most celebration-worthy is the level of generosity from donors and an overwhelming desire for connection. Unable to gather for in-person mass market events or major donor cultivation, many organizations had to fast-track digital initiatives - taking to online platforms. As individuals begin convening again, people will toggle between digital, print, phone, and in-person engagements, making siloed and linear donor journeys a thing of the past.

Creating a meaningful, and tailored, experience for your constituents goes beyond communicating a consistent message through different channels; it should extend engagement through an omnichannel experience aligned to your audience. While some may be well on their journey, the speed at which digital, social, phone, and even the role of mail, evolved in recent years may have resulted in a less-than-ideal omnichannel experience for constituents and donors. Are your loyal supporters still experiencing meaningful interactions with your organization? Do they still feel connected to the organization and to each other? What does the donor experience look like in an omnichannel environment?

In this session, Kacey Crawford, VP of Digital Strategy at Pursuant will moderate a discussion with Dana Heiser from Washington National Cathedral and Justin Henry from Synergy sharing what the transition from multichannel to omnichannel looks like, better practices, and real-world examples of how to advance a more holistic approach to omnichannel program development.

EVOLVING TRENDS IN ACQUISITION: CASE STUDIES IN LIST GROWTH

The most successful nonprofit fundraisers are achieving growth by staying on the cutting edge: They are consistently inviting new supporters to join their mission, and they are dedicated to pushing the envelope to uncover the next big thing and realize every possible gain.

For an organization preparing for the end-of-year fundraising season, what can be done today to achieve this kind of sustainable, large-scale growth by Dec. 31? In this session, Trista Murphy, VP of Integrated Fundraising  at Make-A-Wish America, formerly of Americares and longtime industry expert, will join MissionWired to talk about the trends she’s seen in nonprofit fundraising over the past few years. Together, they will take a close look at the organizations who are achieving growth by diversifying acquisition avenues while also protecting their budgets from the whims of social media platforms. As organizations are seeing a softening in results during a difficult time while competing with the news cycle in inboxes, this discussion will pinpoint transformational approaches to growth to ensure that even with the world’s attention divided amongst many crises, you can locate the best new prospects at the lowest cost to drive higher-than-ever ROI at year end.

Learning Outcomes:

•            Understand the strategies employed by the nonprofit fundraisers who are seeing the most success with sustainable, large-scale list growth

•            Identify the transformative approaches to nonprofit fundraising that can be put into action immediately to see the best results possible at year end

•            See results organizations have achieved through joining The Digital Co-Op and reimagining their approach to list growth, reactivating lapsed supporters, upgrading sustainers, and more

•            Look at these growth tactics in the context of today’s challenges to ensure that even in the most difficult times for nonprofit fundraising, you’re still acquiring the best prospects to drive the highest ROI

BREAKOUT SESSION 2A: FUTURE OF OMNICHANNEL MARKETING IN A PRIVACY-CENTRIC WORLD

The world of consumer privacy is evolving – and with that brings huge changes to the marketing and advertising ecosphere. Google’s decision to sunset third-party cookies has pushed the digital advertising industry into uncharted territory, leaving nonprofits searching for effective alternatives to identify and reach their target audiences online. Meta also recently shocked marketers when it announced it would be removing options to target audiences based on political beliefs, social issues, causes, organizations, and more. But what do these changes really mean and how can nonprofits prepare for them? Our experts share insights into what nonprofits can expect, how they should plan for the cookie-less future and what tools they need to succeed in this brave new world.

BREAKOUT SESSION 2B: RECURRING GIVING ALL THE WAY! STRATEGIES FOR GROWTH

Everyone wants a strong recurring giving program but how do you get to a program focused completely on recurring giving? In this session, we’ll examine the steps the National Audubon Society has taken to make their digital program recurring focused with annual and monthly recurring offers. We’ll discuss the short and long term budget implications, the ecosystem to acquire and retain these donors, and what’s needed for the continued growth of the program.

BREAKOUT SESSION 3A: TELEVISION ISN’T AS EXPENSIVE AS YOU THINK - TEST CTV

Once upon a time, TV advertising was beyond most nonprofit budgets. Now, great causes of all sizes can use Connected TV (CTV) and targeted digital advertising to reach new, lapsed, and upgradable donors alongside existing mail and email campaigns. Join Nicole Clemente from Save the Children and Connected TV expert Janet Tonner of Moore as they explain how CTV works, how you can get started and some real world examples.

BREAKOUT SESSION 3B: PLEASE RENEW MY SUBSCRIPTION TO IMPACT | A PANEL DISCUSSION ON STAND OUT SUSTAINER PROGRAMS

Monthly giving, sponsorship programs, and sustainer campaigns are not new to our industry, but the disruption that came with 2020 certainly caused us to think about them in new ways. As more individuals become increasingly comfortable with subscriptions in their day-to-day lives and are also seeking ways to make an impact with the causes they care about during a time of great uncertainty – the option to give monthly is more attractive than ever. While sustainer programs offer numerous benefits to both the donor and the organization, this popular giving vehicle has many organizations seeking new ways to stand out.

In this session, Pursuant’s Jennifer Bielat will lead a panel discussion with leaders from diverse organizations including Feeding America, Moody Bible Institute, and PAN Foundation focused on the opportunities and challenges ahead for monthly giving programs. These organizations represent various stages of sustainer program development – from the early stages of launching a new program through the growth and evolution of a mature multifaceted sustainer program. Together, we’ll explore what’s working, what’s not, and why. This session will facilitate group discussion and Q&A to provide attendees an opportunity to explore their own sustainer program potential and better equip them to navigate the increasingly competitive landscape with a program that will stand out in a unique and compelling way.

BREAKOUT SESSION 4B: WHAT DONORS WANT: A GUIDE TO RELATIONSHIPS, AS TOLD BY DONORS

You’ve gotten a gift from a new donor—great! Now, the challenge is building a deeper relationship with them in the months and years to come. Before you begin, do you know what donors want and expect from your organization?

RKD Group has commissioned a one-of-a-kind market research study to better understand the thoughts and beliefs of donors. The study offers a glimpse at how donors define their relationships with nonprofits—versus the traditional, one-sided view of nonprofits and agency partners.

In this conference session, we will discuss insights from the research like:

  • What behavioral characteristics exemplify the strongest donor-to-nonprofit relationships?
  • How do donors feel when giving to the nonprofits they feel most connected to?
  • How often does a donor receive communication from and engage with the nonprofits they feel most connected to?
  • Do donors think of themselves as donors, supporters, activists, ambassadors, patrons or other similar labels?

ANA WASHINGTON OFFICE NONPROFIT LEGISLATIVE OUTLOOK—TAX EXEMPT BUT NOT PRIVACY EXEMPT!

As the nonprofit community begins to pull ahead of challenges presented by the pandemic, federal and state policy issues are key to understanding what the future may hold for nonprofit marketing and fundraising. Many states have passed privacy laws while many more have drafts waiting in the wings, and not all laws exempt nonprofit organizations from the new data restrictions that will hinder your ability to reach your target audience through smart data practices. Come to this fast-paced session to get an overview of which laws you need to be aware of and what is looming ahead, including United States Postal Service issues and other key nonprofit issues.

BREAKOUT SESSION 5A: LET'S TALK TIKTOK

In the U.S. alone, there are 50 million daily active users on TikTok. With increasing popularity of this social media platform, you may be wondering how your brand can build a TikTok presence—somewhere between the 75 year old dancing grandpas, surly dogs, and countless memes.

Elaine Bussjaeger and Jessica Buckholtz share how the American Red Cross’ in-house communications team amassed more than 750,000 followers on the social media platform while staying true to the brand’s mission. Moderated by One & All's Capin Alexander.

BREAKOUT SESSION 5B: STOP AND TALK TO ME: HOW FACE-TO-FACE IMPACTS YOUR BRAND

My charity is not very well known; does it make sense to start a face to face program?

My charity is very well known; will canvassing negatively impact my brand?

These are two big questions nonprofits ask themselves when making decisions around whether to start or expand their canvassing program. Face-to-face is not a relic from a past life where we still talked to each other in person; it is a channel that evolved to meet the challenges of our current world and remains an invaluable asset for both diversifying your income and donor profiles as well as organically expanding your charity’s brand in a fun, positive way. In this session, One Sixty Fundraising and Children International will share their experiences building brand awareness on the street and explore how their face-to-face partnership accomplished reaching sustainable donors other channels may have missed.

BREAKOUT SESSION 6A: WE CAN’T WAIT: HOW AN APP CAN BUILD A MOVEMENT

There aren’t enough public restrooms in the U.S. for people with certain medical conditions, like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), finding a restroom quickly is a matter of medical necessity. People with IBD or incontinence issues can experience unexpected and urgent bowel movements. Recognizing an opportunity to meet their patients’ needs and engage a broader audience to tackle the issue of restroom access, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation created the “We Can’t Wait” restroom app.

The app is the leading initiative of the Foundation’s broader Open Restrooms Movement, which calls on businesses and municipalities to expand restroom access for those with urgent bathroom needs. Using the restroom app as a case study, the session will focus on the Foundation’s takeaways from building an integrated marketing campaign, “We Can’t Wait.” Senior leaders from the Foundation will share why they decided to develop an app, how they cultivated corporate relationships, and how they used innovative tactics to reach the general public. In addition, the founding sponsor of the We Can't Wait app, Eli Lilly, will describe how this app aligns with Lilly's strategic objectives in the GI space and why they felt this was a valuable sponsorship opportunity for Lilly.

BREAKOUT SESSION 6B: DATA-DRIVEN AUDIENCE INSIGHTS: GETTING 'EM. USING 'EM!

You probably know what a “typical” donor on your file looks like, and you may have even built out some personas and journeys for them. But that’s only the beginning! Organizations have the power to deliver a truly smart and responsive fundraising program that relies on the combination of behavioral data, enhanced demographics, and message testing rather than gut instinct, staff opinion, and stereotypes. This session will demonstrate how to use dynamic digital tools to not only better reach your known audiences but find the hidden markets that may hold the key to your future fundraising success.

EVOLVING LANGUAGE GUIDES: INCREASING INCLUSIVITY IN DIGITAL

We all work daily on missions that hinge on hope and drive positive change in the world – but in that ongoing effort, how conscious are we of our own growth, and the continuous learning experience of building toward equality and justice in the way we approach our messaging?

In this session, Save the Children will share how their proactive effort to be evermore inclusive begins with language. Together with MissionWired, they will talk about what it looks like to implement a social justice language guide across an entire digital program. The ongoing commitment to defining, identifying, and dismantling potentially discriminatory language is a critical project of self-interrogation: a reminder that DEI isn’t optional. Organizations striving for the same commitment to continuous learning and improving around inclusive messaging can learn in this session how this manifests in digital messaging – and the impact it can have on fundraising and community-building.

WHAT IS CRYPTO PHILANTHROPY AND WHY DO WE NEED IT NOW?

Recently named to “Forbes 30 Under 30” in the area of Social Impact, Pat and Alex are at the forefront of creating an entirely new category — crypto philanthropy. With management consulting backgrounds for Fortune 500 companies and nonprofit fundraising, Pat and Alex discovered a need for nonprofits to be able to tap into the new and growing crypto donor demographic. Since they created The Giving Block in 2018, Pat and Alex have turned cryptocurrency into the fastest growing donation method. Today, Pat, Alex and their team are honored to be building crypto philanthropy programs for more than 1,000 nonprofits raising millions every month through 70 different cryptocurrencies.

In this session, Alex and Pat will break down the basics of crypto philanthropy and how this growing industry directly impacts nonprofits, increasing fundraising by as much as 82 times. The Giving Block educates nonprofits on the ins-and-outs of crypto and crypto philanthropy, then properly integrates the best possible solutions based on the organization’s unique needs. Join us for an open discussion on how you can partake in the future of giving.
