HOW AND WHY TO USE DATA FOR MAJOR GIFTS

June 2018 | Ryan Woroniecki, VP of Strategic Partnerships, DonorSearch

It can be tough to pick up the phone and call a stranger, but it’s easier when you can share the bond of brotherhood or sisterhood. In this webinar, DonorSearch walks through important data elements for successful outreach to donors and members. After viewing the webinar, you’ll know which brother or sister may be GRATEFUL you called. You will also learn recent trends from this year’s Giving USA Report, understand the value of a quick phone call, and make sure you’re calling people who can give generous gifts.

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS: THE ROLE EVERYONE HAS IN PRESERVING THE FRATERNITY AND SORORITY EXPERIENCE

The NIC and National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) have joint legislative priorities for advocacy on behalf of fraternities and sororities.
