Developing Stewardship

That Stands Out


Presenting – Mary Ellen Fraser with Courtney Dunakin
Thursday August 3rd – 2:30pm

Developing a strong stewardship program will enable your organization to create meaningful relationships and ensure your supporters make your organization a philanthropic priority. High-level donors are essential to every non-profit organization, and now more than ever attracting new donors and retaining long-standing supporters is critically important. This session will outline successful stewardship strategies with concrete examples designed to give major donors meaningful experiences so that your organization stands out in your sector.

In addition, the presentation will cover how organizations can develop strong relationships with corporations to avoid the trap of transactional giving. It will include practical planning tips with implementable strategies that you can employ with your team. The presentation also will offer examples of how long-standing individual and corporate donors, who were crucial during Covid and helped keep non-profits afloat during a tumultuous time, can be stewarded now to ensure continued support in the future.
