Top 5 Ways to Improve Your Monthly Donor Retention

(April 10, 2019)  Monthly donors continue to be powerful. 100 monthly donors are worth an average of $24,000 a year. They’ll give two to four times more than other donors. They’ll stay with you for at least 5 to 7 years and often even longer. They’re 6 times more likely to leave you in their will. It’s worth a little bit of work to keep them and you’ll learn the tools to do just that!

In this interactive webinar you will learn the best approaches to keep your monthly donors giving for many years on end.

The webinar will focus on the following:

  1. The difference between hard and soft cancels.
  2. Different tools and approaches to help you prevent lapsing monthly donors.
  3. The best approach to bring monthly donors back.
  4. How to thank and cultivate monthly donors to prevent them from ever canceling to begin with.
  5. Reviewing examples and case studies
