AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop (Formerly Planning to Keep your Donors)



About the Workshop

The AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop is now available in its new 8-hour format for all AFP chapters to offer to members.  The workshop is based on data collected via the Fundraising Effectiveness Project.  The annual survey indicates that nonprofits are losing nearly as many donors and gifts as they gain each year.  

The 8-hour workshop includes small group work on a fictional case study based on real data, making the learning experience both substantive and enjoyable.

The focus of this workshop is on developing a donor retention plan based on what research indicates really works.   It shows the value of tracking overall gains and losses in gifts and donors – and then using that information to develop cultivation strategies to improve donor retention.

Full participation in the AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop is applicable for 8.0 points of CFRE Credit in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.

Workshop Objectives:

Following the AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop participants will be better able to:

  • Identify effective practices to retain and upgrade your donors to improve fundraising effectiveness
  • Prepare a donor retention plan for your organization
  • Use data from growth-in-giving reports to develop growth-related fundraising strategies

Workshop Content:

Topics covered include:

  • Why organizations lose donors and money
  • How keeping donors increases fundraising success
  • Determining the effectiveness of fundraising efforts
  • Developing a successful donor retention plan
  • A tool you can use even if you don’t have access to donor software

The workshop curriculum is presented through lecture, a fictional case study based on real data, and the encouragement of participant dialogue. 

Audience: 

The AFP Donor Retention: A Self-Assessment Workshop is designed for fundraising professionals at the intermediate to advanced level who have responsibility for donor cultivation.  This may include executive directors, vice presidents for development, program managers, and leadership volunteers.

Course attendance might vary from 20-40 participants.
