The global pandemic has radically changed the way we connect with our donors and stakeholders, and it is expected that the changes in how we work and gather may last well past 2020. Even as restrictions are removed or adjusted, there will continue to be changes in how we meet and engage with donors and stakeholders. Your staff and donors have already shown they can be remarkably flexible in moving conversations and events to a virtual platform. We can re-imagine new ways of engaging with our donors to meet our goals and continue to fund our missions. Join us as we welcome Melanie Harmon, vice president for advancement at Manchester University, to share best practices on how to engage, cultivate, and steward donors in this new environment and discuss innovative ways to conduct successful donor events during a pandemic.
