Engaging Donors In The New Reality:
Join Amy Schiffman, President of Evolve Giving Group, as she shares insights into what’s working now to keep donors connected to your school’s work. She will offer simple steps to help define goals, nurture supporters and boost giving. Leave with a plan to stay in touch, tailor messages to inspire greater giving, and create engaging virtual opportunities to share your school’s mission with parents, grandparents, alumni and community members.

Moving Into the Major Leagues: Launching and Implementing a Major Donor Program:
A strong major donor program may be the key to growing your campaign — but how do you get there during a global pandemic? Amy Schiffman, President of Evolve, will share tips for crafting and executing a major gifts strategy for 2021. Learn how to elevate mid-level gifts and deepen relationships with major donors who need to “feel the love”. We’ll cover major gift cultivation, solicitation (during Covid!) and recognition so that you have the tools to develop or enhance your current program. 

The “If” and “How” of Virtual Events:
Join Evolve’s Vice President and virtual event guru, Lisa Tarshis to discuss the “if” and “how” of virtual events. In this interactive session, we’ll unpack how to determine if you should move forward with a virtual event, how to think about planning and budgeting for the event and some of the many possibilities to make your event feel special or different. We’ll leave time for Q&A so bring your questions!
