Finish Strong in 2020:
DBD Virtual Annual Giving Academy

Having trouble finding the time, resources, and answers needed to recast your financial development plan? We can help.

NAYDO is proud to partner with DBD Group for the Virtual Academy. You'll get a
six-month financial development plan and toolkit to effectively tell your new story, steward donors, and ask for support. 

Each month, you'll receive:
• Step-by-step guides
• Templates and samples
• Live Q&A session with an inspirational forum
• Optional training module

You'll be part of a virtual learning community with Y colleagues, where you can talk with other, share ideas, and provide (and receive!) peer support and resources. And, you'll have direct access to DBD Coaches who can answer specific questions related to the work you'll be doing together.

Core topics are endorsed by NAYDO and consistent with NAYDO learning:
• The new normal for building major donor relationships
• Options for fall events
• Focusing and communicating your emerging case for support
• Thanking, stewarding, and retaining your new member donors
• Creating a Gratitude Week at the Y for your community
• Amplifying the voices who speak on your behalf
• Using Direct Response as more than snail mail

At the finish line, you will:
• Quickly and effectively communicate your emerging case for support - digitally,         virtually, and in-person 
• Develop additional ways to retain your newly acquired member donors 
• Connect with major donors and prospects virtually to: acquire new gifts for your       emerging case for support; cultivate new relationships for your cause; and               steward those who gave to your emergency case for support 
• Launch a new philanthropic program designed to build a culture of gratitude for         your Y community
