Dear fellow ADRPers,

Welcome to a new year and the opportunity for new beginnings. I’m typically not one to kick off a new year with resolutions, but I do like to commit to a theme (or themes)—something to add focus to the year ahead.

One of my themes for 2021 is making new connections and strengthening connections to those most important to me — personally and professionally. 

And, one of the benefits of ADRP I've enjoyed most for more than a decade is the connections I've made with so many of you.

Earlier this month, ADRP introduced its newest members-only benefit to replace current listservs, My ADRP. You're probably thinking, "the ADRP listserv is going away?!

What is your greatest donor relations/stewardship achievement?

Every time a donor shares that they felt truly appreciated by our organization—those are my favorite moments and reassurance that I am achieving what I have set out to do in my role.

About This Webinar

UAlbany's Loyalty Society recognizes donors who faithfully contribute each and every year. Learn how UAlbany's Donor Relations team celebrates milestones for our most loyal donors from 3 to 25+ years of consecutive giving. We'll share how this recognition program has grown from one welcome postcard to a series of touchpoints throughout the donor's lifetime. And how that program has changed during the pandemic. No matter how large or small your team is, you'll take away new ideas on how to acknowledge consecutive donors at your institution year after year.
