Did you know that recurring donors can be up to 4x more valuable than one-time donors? Online retention rates for recurring donors are above 85% with the average recurring donor giving 42% more over the course of a year than a one-time donors. If you don’t already have a monthly- or recurring- giving program in place, now is the the time to start. And this online workshop will teach you how to set one up based on strategies that have been proven to work well.

The evidence is clear – a successful monthly giving program can create a sustainable and scalable funding stream for your nonprofit but the strategy on how to implement a successful monthly giving program is still unclear.

What if we had a better understanding of the psychological factors that govern whether a prospect will become a monthly donor?

Our understanding of the engagement, conversion and retention funnels as it relates to monthly giving is based primarily upon the intuitions of fundraisers and leaders in the space guided by what we think works well, rather than what we know works well.
