Quotes from Greta
“The only constant in our rapidly changing fundraising landscape is that success is rooted in donor-centric strategies. Technologies and priorities may shift, but putting the donor first when taking action will always provide solid foundation for growth. Whenever assessing new programs, initiatives, or technologies, I always ask, how is this going to improve the donor’s experience when engaging with my institution?”
“The art and science of donor engagement and fundraising come together in predictive analytics and personalization. Utilizing technology to learn more about your donors, anticipate interest and build pathways for increased engagement allows you to share compelling, personalized stories that inspire action and build community at a scale previously unattainable in the non-profit sector.”
