We'll discuss questions:
Donors give for their reasons, not yours. If you don't truly understand your target audiences, your fundraising efforts are merely educated guesses.
Done right, donor surveys can help you unlock your donors' interests, connect them to your cause, build the right appeals, grow your major gift pipeline, and optimize your current donor portfolio. Done poorly, you could lose donors and end up with mountains of useless and misleading data. If you're ready to discover how surveys can turn your fundraising strategy into a fine-tuned, sophisticated engine of revenue join Rachel Muir, CFRE, and Rachel Clemens, CMO of Mighty Citizen, and for actionable and surprising insights into what your current and prospective donors do, think, and need. Learn the components of donor survey design and how to sidestep the countless pitfalls that plague so many surveys!Register here!

EVENT: Webinar - How to Respond to IT Security Incident for Nonprofits - NEW TIME 3-4pm EDT Wed Oct 17Hi everyone! Wednesday Oct 17th from 3-4pm EDT please join Community IT Innovators CTO Matt Eshleman and President and CEO Johan Hammerstrom for a worst-case scenario walk through of how to respond to an IT security Incident at a nonprofit. They will discuss potential breaches such as email or Office 365 and share our experience responding to credential hacks and other situations. We will outline a checklist you should include in your security policies. We hope this is a useful resource you will never have to use, but with the cost of hacking falling and hacking becoming automated, unfortunately we are all at increasing risk. I hope you'll join us to learn what to do in the event you get that frantic call from a co-worker .. "I think we've been hacked!"
