Are you overwhelmed by your donor database? Do you have a sneaking suspicion that you are not fully tapping into what it can do for you? You might be surprised to learn that you do not have to be a "techie" to master your information resources.
This workshop will give attendees some simple tips to maximize the use of their donor database. We will explore how a good system, clean data, defined processes, and trained staff can combine to create a more effective use of time and resources to maximize giving potential amongst both annual fund and major donors. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss simple solutions to make their database work better for their organization.
