Continuing the Circle: Successful Solicitation and Stewardship Collaboration

Wednesday, May 15 | 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST | OIB Room 131/133
Past giving is the best indicator for future giving with donors. Retaining and upgrading these critical supporters over time requires a cycle of thoughtful stewardship and strategic solicitation. In this joint session with the Annual Giving and Stewardship Communities of Practice, we will discuss effective stewardship campaigns from partners on Grounds as well as the University of Georgia. The goal will be to identify new and best practices to help our donors feel engaged, informed and excited to continue their philanthropic support.
