Donor Relations

Donor Relations

Building relationships with donors and prospects is one of the single most important actions nonprofits can take to ensure fundraising success. Donor relations, both before and after a gift is made, is an often-overlooked segment of the fundraising cycle. Best practices suggest you should communicate with a donor six to 10 times when asking for a first-time gift or recurring contribution. But deciding when and how to make those connections is just as important as what you communicate.

Producing a donor relations plan can help remove the guesswork when unexpected situations arise with a particular donation. Part art and part science, great donor cultivation relies on consistent activity, personalized communications, and a compelling strategy. Incite! Consulting Group can help you:

  • Develop donor cultivation plans with timelines and concrete goals
  • Select a donor database that fits your objectives and budget
  • Employ a donor touch point calendar with varied communication mediums
