Need some year-end inspiration before the conference? Take a look at these quick tips from our team of personal fundraising coaches at Network for Good.

“Believe in the power of peer-to-peer fundraising tools! While we cannot do it at all, we can supercharge a circle of supporters who can get a handful of people to match their Giving Tuesday gifts or provide a birthday or Thanksgiving donation in the name of a loved one.”

Laura Cansicio

“Use the power of the database to segment so donors, lapsed donors, and non-donors get tailored messages, at the right time.”

Janet Cobb, CNP

“Partner with your most passionate and connected supporters (donors, volunteers, board members) using social media and peer-to-peer campaigns to harness the spirit of your year-end campaign."
