Development at Scale: Pipeline Strategies that Work
Session Description
As our industry continues to face increasing goals in dollars raised and impact delivered while navigating headwinds in donor counts, many organizations are struggling with balancing “what’s next” with “what’s important right now.” Proper strategy and allocation of human and financial resources toward growing the pipeline of annual leadership donors and major gift prospects is becoming more important than ever to increase one-to-one engagement, solicitations and stewardship to build relationships at scale.

Join Leah Sveen and Dr. Nicholas Linde from the University of Nebraska Foundation for a conversation about strategies on the identification, engagement and qualification of donor segments and how to build programming that taps into possible donor segments to grow the base of qualified donors through personalized engagement at scale.
