Have you procrastinated in planning your year-end fundraising?

Don't forget . . . holiday gift giving includes charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations. Studies fail to agree on the exact percentage who give in the fourth calendar quarter, but all sources agree that it's a significantly high number (i.e., reports range from 33% to 76%).

On-line giving is particularly high with 34.8% made in the fourth quarter (Source: Blackbaud's On-line Giving Report released in February 2012). Network for Good reports that 20% of all on-line giving comes in the last two days of the year!

Donors aren't the only ones who procrastinate. Nonprofits should plan all year for their year-end appeal; however, December 1st often arrives in a panic.

Join us and learn ten tips to get gifts before December 31st and engage current donors in ways that guarantee their continued support in 2013. All procrastinators are welcome to attend! Your holiday campaign deserves to sparkle!

You will learn:

· Ask: Improve your organization's year-end "ask” strategies.

· *Retain: Increase the number of lapsed donors who contribute by December 31.

· *Thank: Strengthen your current donors' loyalty to the important work your organization does.

*Penelope Burk's research found that 75% of all first-time donors never make another contribution. Donor retention and stewardship are critical to your long-term fundraising success (Source: ).
