The donors who give to your nonprofit care about what you're doing and want to join you in making a difference in the world. But many organizations struggle with keeping donors engaged, and, as a result, a lot of donors never give again.

Retaining donors is the most efficient, effective way to raise the funds you need for your nonprofit. The Donor Relationships and Retention Fundraising Mini-Course includes a beginner-friendly training video and three electronic handouts, and will show you the proven strategies you can use to build great relationships and retain more donors.

Donor Relationships and Retention includes one training video and three handouts.
