Second Gifts: Why They Are So Important and How to Drive Your StrategyTrue donor acquisition involves far more than simply getting the initial gift. This is only the first (and in many ways, the simplest) step. Meaningful acquisition requires not only calculating, but also understanding why the extra effort and investment are worth it. 
With the retention rate for second-time donors being nearly three times that of first-time donors, nonprofits need to fully understand the potential life-time value of different donor types and tailor their thank you, welcome, and their second gift strategy plans to make the most out of those differences. Join Roger Craver from the Agitator to learn:
 How the pros wow first-time donors and keep them coming back
 How to target those donors who are most likely to make a second gift
 Why meeting the donors’ needs will help them meet yours

Strengthening Your Fundraising by Combining Social Data with an Effective Crowdfunding StrategyYour database is full of alumni who are also “micro-influencers” and are willing to share the good work your institution is doing with their classmates, friends, and family. But are you ready to mobilize them? 
Your job as a fundraiser is to harness the passion of active followers who are primed to take action, facilitating their participation as supporters, messengers, donors, and leaders. And doing so can be very lucrative. Just 27 influencers helped one organization raise over $200,000 for a P2P event, and one study determined that a single post by five influencers increased an organization’s social reach by over 400%. 
In this webinar, we’ll demonstrate the tools you can use to identify your social influencers and empower them with an effective crowdfunding strategy to transform your social-savvy alumni and students into strong and loyal ambassadors.

The Mid-Level Donor CrisisJoin Tim Kachuriak of NextAfter to learn how you can take your mid-level giving programs to the next level. 
After years of working with top nonprofit organizations, we noticed an ongoing trend. Organizations did not have specific strategies for communicating with mid-level donors. 
So, we developed a hypothesis: Nonprofit organizations are abandoning their mid-level donors. 
To see if our hypothesis was true, we made $1,000–$5,000 donations to 37 unique organizations. We then monitored all the communication we received for a period of 90 days. 
After analyzing the data, we had some startling observations, including:
 Only 8% of organizations called us to say thank you
 Only 31% of communication we received came from a real person
 49% of organizations either sent nothing or stopped communicating after a month
Join this webinar to learn more about the study, and find out how you can improve communications and increase fundraising with your mid-level donors.

Wealth Screening Meets Predictive Modeling: Identify and Segment Your Best Prospects with Affluence Insight™ from Blackbaud Target Analytics®Nonprofits need to identify prospects with the financial means and philanthropic affinity to support their mission. Historically, you've probably used traditional wealth screenings to determine a prospect's financial capacity to give and/or employed predictive modeling to gauge their likelihood to support your mission. The value of one versus the other has been debated, but the truth is that an effective prospect research and identification strategy requires a mix of both. With Affluence Insight from Blackbaud Target Analytics, we're bringing you a single dataset that can deliver this mix.
Affluence Insight delivers four key wealth attributes, including discretionary spend and investments that provide a clearer picture of a prospect’s liquidity. It also leverages real philanthropic giving history to segment your prospects into 13 unique groups, providing the first-ever philanthropy driven wealth segmentation. Combined with higher caps on income and net worth, more accurate data, and better coverage of the U.S. population, Affluence Insight delivers behavioral and wealth insight for your prospects in a way that nobody else does. Join us for this webinar to see how it could change the way you identify, segment, and engage your best prospects.
