    Stewardship 2.0 The Second Most Powerful "Move"

    Here's a tool for everyone and a plan that really works. Asking for the right gift at the right time is the most powerful donor initiative you can implement. Demonstrating the IMPACT of that gift in creative ways that are meaningful to the donor is a very close second. In this session, we'll discuss how to deliver stewardship that inspires increased giving, donor loyalty, major and planned gifts, and viral marketing. We’ll also explore corporate and foundation stewardship that yields larger gifts and commitment. You'll come away with concrete action steps, tools you can use and the inspiration to use them.
