Greetings Tendenci Community!
Hope everyone's holiday season is off to a wonderful start!
As we roll toward the end of 2016 - and what a year it has been! - we'd like to leave you with some things to think about as you look forward to the new year. What are your plans for growth? And how can your website help you reach your goals?
Increasing Donations through Membership Programs
Finding and retaining long-term donors is critical to any development program. Nonprofits in the performing and visual arts have historically counted on membership programs to build their donor communities and engage with their supporters throughout the year. Increasingly, nonprofits that serve other areas are turning to membership programs to cultivate a sense of community among the individuals and companies that support their causes.
Jeff Gordy, an NTEN contributor, recently published a great article with practical, straight-foward advice on setting up and running a successful membership program.
