AFP DC Washington D.C. Metro Chapter: Pursuant Sponsored Webinar Using Data to Create Exceptional Donor Experiences: Part 1: Recognize and Delight

March 15, 2018

Using Data to Create Exceptional Donor Experiences:

Part 1: Recognize and Delight

PRESENTER: Matthew Mielcarek

Your nonprofit has access to just as much information about your donors than the best for-profit companies. The key is knowing how to use it.  When we think about the way that a donor, supporter or volunteer may want to engage with our organization versus the reality of how they do engage, there are often opportunities to improve.  In this fast-paced world, creating engaging donor experiences will set your organization apart and will keep your biggest fans coming back for more, year after year.

In this webinar, Pursuant’s Matthew Mielcarek will explore how to leverage data to identify and design an ideal donor experience. Through sharing examples of some of his favorite brands, Matthew will unpack how your organization can:

●       Leverage data to segment donors and create unique experiences for each group.

●       Combine quantitative research & qualitative strategy to design the ideal donor experience.

●       Identify the key "moments of truth" where your organization has the most valuable opportunities to deepen relationships with donors.

Through using data in a smart way, nonprofits can show their constituents that they are recognized, heard, and valued.

He worked as the Director of Client Success Services at Convio and subsequently Blackbaud where he helped customers to use the products they had purchased most effectively. There, he launched the Peer to Peer Fundraising Benchmark Study helping event fundraisers to assess registration and participant fundraising against peers.
