You might know that 40 percent of all online donations come in during December. But did you also know that year-end fundraising doesn’t just happen in December? It takes months of list building, inspiring donors, cultivating them, testing, and analyzing metrics to make the absolute most of year-end opportunities.

Participants will learn the most successful fundraising strategies including:
- How to create compelling fundraising campaigns that motivate web visitors to make a donation on your website.
- Which easy fixes you can make to your donation page, so that donors complete the donation process.
- How to communicate with donors before, during, and after they donate money online to your nonprofit and build long lasting relationships.
