Sept. 27 – 5 Ways to Make an Impact: Understanding the Hopes of Our Donors to Create Change
Once a upon a time, donors gave out of a sense of obligation and loyalty. Today, most donors care about the impact they make in the world. How do we understand the motivations of our donors? What kind of change do they want to make in the world? Andrew Warner will talk about five basic ways donors look to create change. We will discuss ways to discuss your congregation’s impact on your community.
Oct 25 – Donors Who Don’t Come to Church: Engaging Donors Outside of Sunday Morning
People find multiple ways to engage in the life of a congregation. Congregations often do well at engaging people who attend in-person services regularly, volunteer and donate. But how do we meaningfully engage people online? How do we inspire those who don’t give to donate? Connect with those who share our values but are not interested in worship, in-person or online. The webinar will help us think together about various ways to engage donors beyond Sunday Morning services. Presented by Rev. Andrew Warner, CFRE, Generosity Outreach Officer, National Ministries, United Church of Christ.
