Creating a Monthly Giving Program: A Solution to Donor Retention and Financial Sustainability Edit Title
Wed, Mar 09, 2016 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date
According to the Fundraising Effectiveness Report, fewer than 2 of 10 new, first-time donors renew their support of nonprofits and barely 6 of 10 repeat donors are retained. This crisis of donor retention threatens nonprofits in ways that a generation ago were unimaginable.
This webinar will provide you and your organization with strategies to solve the donor retention malaise through a disciplined program to encourage monthly donors who become the key to sustaining your enterprise. You will learn:
- What is Monthly Giving and Why it Matters
- How to Organize for Monthly Giving Success
- Getting Board and Staff Buy-in--Managing Expectations
- The Infrastructure You will Require to Launch Your Program
- A Step-by-Strep Plan to Ask for Monthly Gifts
- Keeping Your Monthly Donors and Growing Your Program

Monthly donors are more likely to give more, become major donors and make bequests and other planned gifts. This webinar will show you how to get started to assure the financial sustainability of your organization.

Mr. Mersky's approach to monthly giving and the process he identified to implement a solid plan to make it happen was very helpful. His expertise in this area was clear. I learned several things which I will pass on to colleagues.

Overall it was pretty informative, I would have liked him to elaborate on the Development Cycle. That could be a webinar itself.

Glad I was able to join this webinar.
We are working on a BIG ASK letter as we speak and many of the suggestions shared will help us improve our ASK!
The recommendation to "try out" your monthly giving link was especially useful.

This is clearly one of the best webinars of the many I have experienced. His "boots on the ground" experience, wisdom, and guidance were apparent throughout, and I hope to share it with the members and staff of the several nonprofit boards on which I serve.

Great webinar, lots of valuable information in a brief, hour-long session. As a refresher or as new information, definitely worth the time. Thank you for making it interesting too, good background and case for getting on board a monthly giving program.

Good stuff. We have not not gotten into this phase of fundraising yet and the webinar gave me a good start on the things we need to consider.

Fantastic. David was knowledgeable, and his presentation was well-organized, logical, perfectly and clearly presented, thorough and well paced. I could keep up with his slides and didn't feel like I was missing anything. He gave real and helpful examples.
I feel that I walked away with some of the most valuable information I have gained from a webinar. This was not what I expected.
Our foundation is at a strategic turning point, and I discussed David's presentation with our Director immediately after the webinar. He felt the monthly giving program David presented could be foundational for our program as we move forward. It fits seamlessly with other strategies from research-based experts we are planning to use to retain donors. I can easily see and do feel confident that we can implement a monthly giving program following the steps.
