You have been called to do this important work and YOU ARE UP FOR THE TASK! What does your future hold? Do you inspire, "Forever Love?" How does fear interfere as you connect with your givers in authentic and powerful ways? Why should the sky be your limit - in your fundraising or your life? SHINE ON!

Speaker Two

Monica Mattioli

Director of Planned Giving, Belmont Abbey College

Keynote: 1876 Heritage Society Revival

November 3 @ 11:00 AM PDT

This keynote will cover the process of rebranding and reinventing a legacy society that had been dormant for decades. The process involves forensic and marketing research, identifying "current" members and surfacing new prospects, establishing the framework for a contemporary program (cultivation, stewardship), branding and collateral creation, website redesign (Crescendo), multimedia programmatic components, goals and outcomes measurements - all in the midst of pandemic.
