We Have All of These New Donors from 2020 – What Now?Without saying, 2020 was a year we will all remember for decades to come. Giving in 2020 was also an anomaly that benefitted many nonprofits. Many organizations acquired new donors with little effort because the COVID 19 pandemic shed a bright light on those missions that were negatively impacted. Many camps were able to ride this wave and increase unrestricted support. So what’s next? How do you keep all of those new or returning donors? Join Mark Duncan of The FundCoach as he talks about how to keep and engage new donors for years to come. If you have a topic suggestion for a future call, please contact Joel Winchip.

Please keep in mind that PCCCA membership now lasts one (or two) years beyond your renewal date and does not follow the calendar year.
