The Evolution of Digital Fundraising
Online giving is now 20 years old. It has grown past the 10% mark for all Canadian donations and is more than just one time or annual gifts. CanadaHelps has grown over the past 17 years to now facilitate hundreds of millions of dollars a year and has new insight into the growth of annual, major and planned gifts in online giving (specifically in Atlantic Canada). Paul will share global and Canadian trends, tips and traps so you can integrate with all giving programs and how your organization and fundraisers can be more skilled to generate gifts and donor leads in a digital world for charities of every size. Resources will be shared and data from all platforms and all across North America including exclusive Canadian research done by the Association of Fundraising Professionals will be included. You will leave the session feeling stronger about fundraising in 2017 and beyond.
