Communicating with Donors During Crisis and Uncertainty

Communicating with Donors During Crisis and Uncertainty

July 21, 2020 | 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Work through strategies for proactive and reactive donor communications in times of challenge.

Overview

Join us for this current-issue-oriented workshop, where our expert will take you through current situations and headlines, preparing you for the future of donor communications. We will help you navigate this important outreach in these rapidly changing times by discussing the following considerations:

  • What do your donors need to know during times of crisis and uncertainty?
  • How are your current communication pieces serving you and how can you enhance them?
  • How prepared are you to be a strategic partner in the post-pandemic fundraising environment?

After participating in this workshop, you’ll be able to bring more strategic and timely ideas to the table when talking about donor communications in your shop.

 

Who Should Attend

This virtual training is designed for those working full-time or spending a large portion of their time on advancement communications. We will spend our time on strategic communications and not on writing mechanics. Please bring current donor communication samples to this event.

 

Limited Attendance

In order to ensure a high-quality learning experience, we have intentionally designed this Virtual Training to have a limited number of total attendees. To ensure access from both paying participants and also from those who have an All-Inclusive membership, when the membership cap is reached, only paying participants can register after that point (while spaces are still available). If you have questions about whether this program is right for you, please contact us.

The Academic Impressions Virtual Workshop Experience

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to exploring responsive issues in higher education. Our virtual workshops provide you with an active learning environment and an online space where you can explore ideas, get inspired by what your peers are doing, and understand the range of possibilities around a certain topic. Depending on what you need to solve a specific challenge at your institution, you will have the chance to gain ideas, plans, refinements, or connections with those undergoing the same challenges as you. You will leave these sessions with practical solutions that you can take back to your team or task force.

What you will get:

  • Learn from what your peers are doing across the nation
  • Gather unique and creative approaches that you may not have thought about
  • Validate and vet plans and priorities
  • Contribute your ideas and help shape the conversation
  • Get work done in a space that’s designed to help you reflect, be creative, and maintain focus on the issue
  • Connect with subject matter experts who steer the conversation and add value
  • Experience expert facilitation to ensure practical outcomes and takeaways

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds nationally, it is so important to keep connecting and networking with your peers - at a “social distance” - and to keep learning and developing as higher-ed leaders and professionals. Don’t let social distancing and quarantines prevent you from setting aside time for professional development. Everything is changing so fast; more than ever, we need to be pooling our resources and knowledge and finding the best ways to develop our capacity, connect and share with each other, and move forward during a challenging time.

*A limited number of FREE member spots are open for each virtual training. Sign up today.
