What: One-hour webinar, Engaging Donors With One Unified Voice

Who: Josh Robertson and Brian Gawor, vice presidents at Ruffalo Noel Levitz who have consulted with hundreds of colleges on higher education fundraising strategies.

When: May 24, 2-3 PM Eastern (11-12 Pacific)


While overall fundraising for colleges and universities has risen, alumni donor participation rates have been on a 20-year decline. To keep their alumni engaged and reverse this trend, colleges need to increase the impact of their fundraising communications to their alumni base.

One of the best strategies to build that engagement is connecting with alumni in a unified voice—making sure that all fundraising messages, no matter what part of campus they come from, are clear, compelling, and consistent.

This webinar will share how colleges and universities can align their fundraising departments and donor outreach in a much more unified fashion. During this session, attendees will hear how to:

  • Increase collaboration between fundraising departments such as alumni relations, athletics, and major gifts.
  • Break down the organizational silos that prevent the institution from engaging donors with a consistent, powerful story that shows the impact of their gifts.
  • Harmonize communication channels such as phone, mail, online giving, and social media, so that messages are consistent no matter where they’re received.
  • Harness the power of crowdfunding, giving days, and other time-based giving programs.

The webinar is ideal for anyone involved in higher education fundraising, especially those in development, advancement, or annual giving. To sign up, visit:
