Raise more money using the enneagram! Like many personality assessments, the enneagram is an effective tool for helping you learn more about the people who matter most to you and how you relate to them. Ame Eldredge (type 3) and Jason Smith (type 2) help you consider your major donors as individuals with unique motivations of their own. You’ll be able to customize your approach to these donors by considering what motivates them to give to your work.

If you work in an organization that has staff raising their own support, you have experienced the tension of ‘my donors’ vs ‘organizational donors’. What if everyone in your ministry viewed each donor the exact same way? What if, through a developed and tested strategy, organizational and individual staff giving went up together as a culture of abundance permeated your ministry? Answering these questions as well as talking through best practices in engaging your deputized fundraisers so they raise more money for their work while getting buy-in (and funding!) from those same donors for your greater mission will be the focus of this webinar.

Prospect Research provides data about a donor’s net worth and gift capacity range that can help you determine if the donor can make a sizable gift to your organization. But data by itself may not tell the whole story about the donor. In this webinar, we will discuss why it’s important to take an art and science approach to Prospect Research.
