Leveraging Technology for Increased Donor Engagement - Breakfast Program

Friday, September 12, 2014 • 8:30 am – 10:30 am • Maggiano's Banquets, Chicago

As development professionals, we know that it’s crucial to incorporate technology into our donor relationship toolkit.  Internet traffic has shifted from desktops and notebooks to tablets and smartphones.  Many organizations are finding fundraising success through text-to-give programs, mobile bidding at special events, and the data derived from a host of web-based platforms. How can we make use of the latest technology, the data it provides to us, and stay focused on total donor relationship management? Join us as we learn from both tech experts and our peers in field, not only about opportunities and successes using new technology, but also how to strike the balance between technology and meaningful engagement.
