Webinar | Donor Circles with James Boyd
Donor circles are now recognised as a specific fundraising strategy able to be used by all arts organisations, in many different situations.
They are simple, cost-effective, powerful and sustaining. They can also provide a terrific way to engage your board in the fundraising process and will even recruit the help of your most engaged supporters to help you grow philanthropic support.
This 40-minute webinar introduces you to the concept of fundraising using donor circles.
