How do you make the most of this critical fundraising season? During our upcoming webinar with APRA, we’ll look at trends that could influence your fundraising and the benefits of expanding donor research across more sources beyond public records, including: -News and company information to help identify corporate donors whose environmental, social or governance (ESG) commitments align with your mission; -Company and executive data, including foundation information, for building executive lists for targeted engagement campaigns; -Wealth indicators to match donation requests to individuals’ priorities and propensity to give; -News and legal information to conduct donor due diligence to protect your organization from reputational damage; -Job histories, education backgrounds, memberships, and affiliations to capture a more complete view of prospective and current donors so you can personalize fundraising appeals; and -Donor profiles featuring visualizations to help you spot critical information faster.

    Questions and discussions about new officer roles in leadership or mid-level giving have certainly increased over the past few years. Since many of the new officers hold portfolios, we wanted to explore if there was any data indicating a difference in how portfolios are managed between mid-level officers and major giving officers. In this session, we will look at how we got to this point and how these new roles are important in building a sustainable pipeline. We will also look at initial metrics and data from 150+ higher education institutions to discover trends that could help inform best practices in portfolio management for these new officer roles. We’ll finish with a summary and future research considerations.
