Survey Says....Know Your Donors: It Pays to Ask!
Most of planned giving marketing has largely been one-way focused communiation…charities pushing information out to our donors. Surveys have long been a great tool for us to not only create more of a two-way dialogue with our donors, but better understand donor passion, donor receptiveness and ultimately identify new planned gifts! This presentation will provide answers to common questions planned giving professionals are asking about survey tools and how to put them to best use in growing their planned giving program. No matter your nonprofit’s size or sector you’ll gain valuable information on: 1) Why should your organization survey? What should you expect from surveying your donors? 2) Who should you be surveying and what’s the best format? How should you decide who’s in and who’s out? 3) How often should you send surveys? Can you survey too much? 4) How can the results of your organization’s survey impact your planned giving program?
