Let’s consider the fundraising you could be doing #OutsideTheRoom.

There’s a new way forward with fundraising and plenty of options to meet your donors where they are and connect with them all year round. This webinar series explores just that.

The big event. The big room. It’s time to re-think.

While much of what we did in the past can be used on our new path we’ll need to adjust along the way.

The good news: you’ve always had serious opportunities to raise more #OutsideTheRoom. Connect with donors online and on their devices. Bring your campaigns to your donors. We have some ideas on how.

A modern path toward your fundraising targets.

We’ve got just the resources that you need right now. Your mission + our resources = magic for the communities you serve. #OutsideTheRoom – join us?

A few gaps you might be missing:
Knowing your data: How much (and how) are your donors donating-where can these insights have the most potential?

Capturing all intent:
How can you encourage them to donate more with new campaigns, initiatives, and engagement?

Understanding your donor base:
How do you need to modify your initiatives based to cater to *who* your donors are?

Don’t reinvent the wheel:
How are other fundraisers in the space maximizing donor intent?

Learning from your community:
What are misses other fundraisers have experienced that you can avoid?

Clients are finding success #OutsideTheRoom by:

Running more than one campaign - Clients that ran more than one campaign raised, on average, 50% more each year.

Running some online-only fundraising campaigns - Engage your donors with exciting and non-traditional “events”.

Capturing the Guest Of your event donors - Acquire new fans, donors, and advocates at your event.

Promoting unsold auction items - Turn unsold live auction items into a stand-alone silent auction.
