I recently contributed to the 10-Minute Board Exercises Series by the Center for Nonprofit Stewardship. These exercises and worksheets are meant to be incorporated into your board meetings to get board members talking about important issues.
My worksheet, Becoming Your Donor’s Favorite Cause, is about helping your board brainstorm ways to solidify your relationships with your current donors by making them feel more appreciated, in the know, and included in the work of your organization, through communications (e.g. newsletters, social media).
How donors feel about your organization is a strong indicator of whether they will give again or not.
