St. Norbert College is sponsoring the following AFP Webconference:Introducing "Donor Touchpoint Management"- A Marketing Approach to Donor Relations

The session will examine donor relations from a marketing perspective and will describe the interactions with the donor, including acknowledgement, recognition and stewardship, as a series of "touchpoints." With this approach, donor relations becomes the management of those interactions or touchpoints. The session will outline specific ways that touchpoints can be planned and managed and how the individuals involved with the donor, both in the development office and beyond, can participate in "touchpoint" management. "Donor Touchpoint Management" expands donor relations beyond the scope of acknowledgement and recognition and describes "everything that happens between asks."
