The Drivers of Greater Donor Behaviour @ Online
Nov 29 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Sector3Insights has recently completed a unique North American study, across hundreds of charities, to explore what drives donors to greater charitable behaviour. This webinar will present key findings from the study, which will highlight the most important characteristics for stronger donation motivation.

This one-hour webinar by the researchers presents “lessons learned” about:

  • The role and (limited) importance of the charity’s mission, and how well it performs.
  • The role of emotions, which types, and which ones in particular. – Not all emotions are equal.
  • The top, most important characteristic to drive behaviour (even more important than emotions!)
  • The role of direct solicitation; how much does it matter?
  • How charities generally perform (and under-perform) on key drivers.

This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.

Fundraising for Small Nonprofits @ Online
Dec 6 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Fundraising in small organizations can be crazy-making. It can be demoralizing to hear “XYZ large organization just hosted a million dollar gala. I think we should try host a gala too”. Or maybe it’s the dreaded “I’ve never heard of your organization”. It’s tough to be a small nonprofit where it feels like the large ones have all the advantages. How can you compete?

Add to that the many hats you wear and the immense time pressures. Who can fit fundraising in? There is never enough time in the day to do what we want to accomplish, and half the time it feels like our time is sucked up by the things that really don’t matter or that don’t get us results. Enough of that!

In this webinar, Cindy Wagman, President and CEO of The Good Partnership will show you how you can leverage unique opportunities of being a small nonprofit so you can stop “competing” and start raising more money.

This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.
