Improving Donor Retention by Implementing Strategic Stewardship Best Practices

Friday, March 8, 2024
8:00 - 9:30 am
Maggiano's Little Italy

Stewardship is more than just a simple acknowledgment letter. It is an organization’s opportunity to build strong, meaningful connections with donors, so they understand their impact and continue giving. With the national donor retention rate hitting its lowest mark in 2022, stewardship is more important now than ever before. Join us for an interactive learning workshop where you hear stewardship and donor retention best practices and how nonprofit organizations are using a donor-centric approach to major gift fundraising.


  • Understand current trends and best practices of donor retention and stewardship and how to apply them to your organization.
  • Learn from peers through a panel discussion to find out what’s working well and what creative ideas they have implemented at their organizations.

Full breakfast included!
