Who doesn’t feel overworked and under-supported more than the nonprofit sector now? At the same time, you have board leaders who need to be engaged, and donor support to hold onto in a world of rapidly declining donor retention rates. There are solutions to these dilemmas. And the answers can make for a stronger social sector. Let’s talk about a focus on donor relations: from major donor relationships to the all-important theme of stewardship, to make your workload manageable and to build better donor engagement throughout your organization or institution’s leadership.
