“The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.”

Benjamin Franklin

Historically, prospect research and fundraising had an overarching focus on wealth. However, in this evolving nonprofit world where charitable donations are stagnant and the number of individual donors is decreasing, wealth data alone is no longer enough. By including affinity and capacity along with wealth data into your research and fundraising, nonprofits are better able to uncover the best donors who are most likely to contribute major gifts to their organization. Join us for “How to Find the Best Donors for your Organization” on May 27th at 2pm.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic has upended daily life and the nonprofit world with it, there is no such thing as business as usual. There is also no such thing as communicating as usual. The messages that drove your fundraising before the crisis are likely to sound out-of-touch now or tone deaf, while messaging that’s topical but not carefully crafted can seem opportunistic. 

In this webinar, on May 29th at 10 am,  three Schultz & Williams team members with varied perspectives will discuss approaches that work, drawing on years of experience in strategic messaging and on projects completed in recent weeks with clients navigating the crisis.

Speakers:  Sarah Hartke, Brad Levinson, Mike Butler
