Meet the expert hosts.
Our most recent webcast, Finding Donors for a Capital Campaign, was presented on May 24, 2016, by Jeffrey D. Byrne, President + CEO of Jeffrey D. Byrne + Associates and Ryan Woroniecki, VP of Strategic Partnerships from DonorSearch.
Here’s what you’ll learn in Finding Donors for a Capital Campaign:
Based on Giving USA’s study of giving trends for 2014, ninety-five cents of every dollar are donated by an individual. That means that building relationships is critical to fundraising.
To be successful at fundraising, nonprofits must:
- Identify prospective donors and volunteer leadership
- Establish personal connections
- Create strategies for cultivation
- Solicit gifts
- Facilitate stewardship
- Make personal gifts
Because donations are made almost exclusively by individuals, it’s important to identify which donors you should target in a capital campaign. Measuring a donor’s likelihood to donate to your organization is based on several factors.
Measuring a donor’s likelihood to donate to your organization is based on these 6 predictors of philanthropy:
- Gifts to your organization
- Gifts to other organizations
- Role as trustee of a foundation
- Gifts to political entities
- Real estate value
- Business affiliations
DonorSearch, an innovative wealth screening tool, weights these predictors and gives donors comprehensive scores to help you determine where you should funnel your fundraising outreach efforts.
