    • Sam's of Gedney Way, 52 Gedney Way, White Plains

    Featuring a panel of representatives from a range of successful membership organizations in the area.  We will explore: 

    • Best practices around member acquisition and retention
    • How membership programs interact with and enhance fundraising
    • Different types of membership programs and whether membership is right for your organization
    NOT A MEMBERSHIP ORGANIZATION?  The strategies used for attracting and retaining new members translate very well to attracting and retaining new donors.  Having a strong pipeline and improving your retention rates in both areas can have a transformative effect on your bottom line!

    2018 Philanthropy Awards Breakfast

    March 7, 2018

What our members are saying after attending our programs:

“I was able to get approval on increasing the frequency of an event from every two years to annually, and helped increase online giving by 12% through crowdfunding for a climate change research organization.”

“A fundraising audit prompted the creation of our first annual report…which led to three times the $$$ on our annual appeal. (And we won a design award for the report as well!)”

“I’m engaging my donors as I like to be engaged: thoughtfully, respectfully, a dash of humor, and building the relationship – and the gifts are coming!”

“I am watching our board and staff move from skepticism about being able to raise money to being engaged and empowered.”

The Association of Development Officers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
