I may be in Australia but the social media and live feed allows any fundraiser or interested party to participate an learn from the Association of Fundraising Professionals Annual International Conference. What I learned today….and if you haven’t met or connected with these folks IRL or via #afpfc you should.

Kofi Annan was the keynote speaker – an inspirational one …

Amy Wolfe @WolfeAmy “Leaders must understand words have power. They can sooth but they can also be cruel.” @KofiAnnan#afpfc  

T. Clay Buck, CFRE @claybuck Funding is good but being an active partner for change is even better. @KofiAnnan #philanthropy#afpfc

Donor Thank
Challenges we have with donor retention is because of how we (nonprofit leaders) treat them. Survey sez:
@stevenshattuck survey – Why do donors leave? …. It’s us, not them.#afpfc #afpeeps
  • 54% could no longer afford to give
  • 36% others more deserving (BET Note: Could be how they were treated)
  • 18% poor service or communication (BET Note: See above)
