    To be most effective with donors and prospects and ultimately reach our goals, we must listen. Using the research discussed in Malcolm Gladwell’s Talking To Strangers and Kate Murphy’s You’re Not Listening: What You’re Missing and Why It Matters, this session will highlight what is known about effective communication skills and how to apply that information to cultivation, solicitation and stewardship within the donor pipeline.

    Participants can expect to learn:

    • Effective storytelling techniques
    • Strategic questions to pose to donors that will result in stronger relationships
    • How to read emotions and reactions and handle rejection
    • Strategies for prospect pool management

    SPEAKER: Michael J. Buckley, CFRE
    Managing Partner, The Killoe Group

Thank you! 

Our members say:

“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.”
