Do you communicate to everyone in your database the same way? You can't craft a compelling message or story if you don't know who you're talking to. Effective storytelling starts with matching your message to your audience. When we don't segment our messaging, we set ourselves up for failure. In this presentation, Steven Shattuck - Chief Engagement Officer at Bloomerang - will share some of his favorite strategies for segmenting your donors and other constituents in your database.

This is the only Planned Giving 102 session planned for 2017. The session is free, but you must register online to participate.
The Planned Giving 100 Series emphasizes the basics of planned giving and endowment building for development staff at nonprofit organizations throughout Arizona. Workshops are led by ACF's Director of Planned Giving Judi Smith, CFRE, who has 30 years of experience working with a broad range of nonprofits.
Many organizations are under constant pressure to increase results with fewer development staff. This session will focus on best practices for sharing responsibilities in any development office, from a one-person operation to a highly specialized department. Drawing on specific case studies from across non-profit sectors, this presentation will also address how teamwork and solid volunteer engagement and management can be leveraged to maximize the impact of every development staff role in fundraising.
