McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
The team from donor management software suite CharityEngine will present two sessions on online fundraising at the 9th Annual Bridge to Integrated Marketing and Fundraising Conference July 9-10 at the Gaylord Hotel & Conference Center at National Harbor near Washington, DC.
The first session, “What Nonprofits can learn from how Gyms Get & Keep Their Members,” will feature Dana Bunke, direct response manager at Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and Hossein Noshirvani, founder of gym management software & billing firm Motionsoft, highlighting lessons nonprofits can learn about building a sustainer program using examples of how health clubs engage members for long-term relationships. The presentation will show how many of these elements have been included in developing Wounded Warrior Project’s Advance Guard program. WWP is a CharityEngine client/partner.
In “The ABCs of Launching a Peer-to-Peer Based Run/Walk,” CharityEngine CEO Philip Schmitz will join Run/Walk expert Sharon Kessler, who has launched Run/Walks for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of NYC and Children’s National Health System (Children’s National) to discuss the soup-to-nuts of launching a peer-to-peer fundraising event as well as the technology available to implement success.
“Nonprofits come to Bridge to hear outside the box approaches to marketing and fundraising,” said Philip Schmitz, CEO and Founder. “With monthly-giving sustainer programs and event-based peer-to-peer fundraising two of the most critical areas of growth for NPOs, we’re excited to bring a fresh perspective to both of these subjects, especially with the expert insight of Dana Bunke from Wounded Warrior Project® and Children’s National’s Sharon Kessler who’ve had enormous success in these areas.”
The first session, What Nonprofits Can Learn About Sustained Giving from How Health Clubs Retain Members, will take place Thursday, July 10 at 8am in the Magnolia 2 room. The second session, The ABCs of Launching a Peer-to-Peer Based Run/Walk or Bike Ride, will take place Friday, July 11 at 8am in Baltimore 3.
