Every year we design and host webinars specifically to help nonprofit professionals think outside the box, challenge the status quo, and create innovative solutions for their organization. We invite the top thinkers from across the social sector, and beyond, to share their expertise directly with you.
As the year winds down, we looked back at our 2018 catalog of webinars and rounded up the fan favorites. Explore the seven heaviest hitters below, and then download the recordings for each one to start learning today.
1. Donor Stewardship 101: How to Combat Donor Fatigue
In 2018, the Fundraising Effectiveness Project published survey results that included some alarming statistics. They reported that for every 100 donors gained, 99 were lost through donor attrition.
