Fundraising Climate Change and What You Can Do About It

Our sector is changing quickly and it's not only due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also the result of “fundraising climate change,” a term first introduced by Greg Warner in the book he released in 2019 titled Engagement Fundraising. Fundraising climate change is the reason your job is getting harder. The reason your donors are not responding to your outreach. And the reason so many people are dropping out of giving altogether. It is very likely that you have been experiencing fundraising climate change for years. But since it's been happening so slowly, you probably couldn't put your finger on it — until now. Join Greg Warner to learn all there is to know about fundraising climate change and — more importantly — how you and your organization can thrive in the face of it.
