From new donor to die-hard supporter: How to nurture new donors on digital

With tax appeals done and dusted, now is the time to shift your attention to where future fundraising value lies — nurturing first-time donors to create long-term, loyal supporters.   

We’ll be drawing from market trends, real life examples, and a wealth of experience to help you develop the strategies you need to steward donors, all through a digital-first approach. Speaking will be Richenda Vermeulen, CEO of ntegrity and Rachel Phillips, Senior NFP strategist at ntegrity and former head of fundraising at Action Aid — together they have years of experience in creating happy donors who give and give again.   

With these strategies in place, you will be able to maximise giving at Christmas, and beyond.  

You’ll learn:  

  • When to ask for the next donation (and what to ask).
  • What the welcome and onboarding journey should look like for new donors to encourage loyalty and second gifts.  
  • How to prepare your donors now to maximise giving at Christmas.  
  • What world-leading not-for-profits are doing to build loyalty right now. 

Date: Friday 22 October 2021
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm AEDT

Venue: Zoom – online webinar (a Zoom link will be provided to registered participants on the day of the session)

This webinar is an exclusive and free event open to FIA members.
