Communicating with Purpose

In this session, we’ll teach you how to communicate purposefully and thoughtfully with your donors and supporters. If you’ve ever wondered whether your communications are hitting the mark in light of the difficult spring and summer many of your supporters have experienced, this session is for you! We’ll cover the importance of storytelling, how to evaluate your existing communication language to improve social sensitivity, ideas for talking about difficult subjects in your appeals and other communications, how to stay top of mind despite social distancing, and how to create more individualized communications using segmentation.
