Arlene Kleinberg

Personally - I have been looking at family photos and creating photo books. Walking! Listening to Rabbi Menachem Creditor each morning on FB UJA Federation of New York’s page - learning Torah and connecting with others.

simon
01:06:51
It's been important to acknowledge the need our lay partners also have for some "down time." I've had some beautiful conversations with my lay partners on determining priorities - accomplishing our goals - and then allowing us both to rest and refuel.

Dot Haymann
01:09:09
WoW, we would love to get the info on how to contact those who have never given?? We have many new comers to our city and we need to try and work out a way to contact them..
Eric Brandt
01:09:43
I love the idea of NOT doing an emergency campaign and including the pandemic needs within the Annual Campaign.
randy
01:10:00
Toronto, great community efforts
Sara Lefton
01:11:09
We are happy to share our proposal with all of you - we have built a list of 600+ donors who have never given to campaign but have capacity to give between $5,000 and $10,000 dollars. We are sending them a personal proposal (branded for them with thei rname) and then we will have a fundraiser (professional or lay) reach out within 48 hours after they receive the proposal.

Arlene Kleinberg
01:19:51
I am a glass half full kind of person. As Campaign Chair of our community - I found that through ZOOM meetings that we had the opportunity to connect with our lay leaders in a meaningful way. We meet each week. We learned FROM UJA Federation of New York’s top leadership and staff about what our agencies did to pivot and adapt to COVID. I was able to SEE that UJA IS built for this.
ornawolens
01:19:52
We are having an End of Summer virtual phone session with 30 lay leaders and professionals - each lay leader will have a curated list of significant donors and smaller donors- but we are excited to be collectively doing this as a way of building momentum, and generating excitement and offering a nice way for us to stay connected with one another.
Julie Platt
01:21:24
I’m looking forward to joining Orna’s phone session - we start together on zoom, make our individual calls and then regather on zoom - makes it feel like we’re all in this together!
Vicki Singer
01:23:20
for younprogressives can view JFed could be seen as the original revolutionary collective organization in the US while
Vicki Singer
01:24:21
traditional supporters can still feel good about the legacy institution of Federation. we are both.
Heather
01:26:56

Susan Knopping JFED-SHAW
01:28:31
How is Danielle marketing to different age groups?
Arlene Kleinberg
01:28:45
I love the different marketing to different age groups!
Susan Knopping JFED-SHAW
01:29:01
how is that possible to do?
Dot Haymann
01:30:00
Excellent thoughts about marketing to the different groups.. we cannot just target our "old" existing donors.. we must open the "tent" to include all
Danielle Minson
01:30:08
Susan we’re doing it via email—we have birthdates for most of our donors so we’re segmenting based on this.
Susan Knopping JFED-SHAW
01:30:37
gotcha - and you change the message the visuals
Danielle Minson
01:30:45
Exactly!
Sara Lefton
01:31:10
Also might be worth considering how you approach people - messaging may or may not be similar - but perhaps test a texting campaign to the younger segment, mail for older demographics, etc.
Susan Solow-Dubin
01:31:42
virtual programming is allowing us to offer magor gifts programs to multigenerations. Adult kids adn parents who may be living together now.
Christy Eckoff
01:35:18
retroactive
Susan Knopping JFED-SHAW
01:35:20
Virtual programming - like offering a movie to legacy donors? a virtual cooking program to new donors? as a perk to the donating?
ornawolens
01:36:06
In Los Angeles we are also having “virtual cocktails and conversations” exactly for having an intimate opportunity to talk with a few people, and to engage - no more the 6 to 8 - asking for advice and suggestions - we absolutely need collective wisdom
David Prystowsky
