AFP DC Washington D.C. Metro Chapter: The Do's and Don'ts in Setting Donor Expectations

April 10, 2018

Donors with unrealistic demands; your organization demanding gifts - what is a fundraiser to do?

Each fiscal year, non-profit organizations reset their fundraising goals for their gift officers.  What happens, though, when you are presented with a challenging donor or gift scenario? The goal of this presentation is to share examples of potentially awkward or avoidable gift situations.  We will review the information and questions fundraisers should use to clarify expectations with both the donor and the organization.

Learn Objectives:

  • The goal of this presentation is to share examples of potentially awkward or avoidable gift situations.  Examples include: donors with unrealistic demands; donors not on the same philanthropic page; a mismatch between the gift envisioned and the gift received; not understanding the asset being gifted; issues on complex gifts.  
  • We will review the information and questions fundraisers should use to clarify expectations for both the donor and the organization. 

Speaker:

  • Joanne Pipkin, Director of Development, Greater Washington Community Foundation
