How to Build a Monthly Giving Program at Your Non-Profit

Monthly Giving Class

Registration for this class is now closed.

Do you wish your non-profit had a team of donors who gave a gift every month, year in and year out?

Are you looking for ways to lower your fundraising costs while making your income more predictable?

Would you like to build long-lasting relationships with donors in an easy and cost-effective way?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then I invite you to join me for the next four weeks to lean how… through The Fundraising Authority’s newest class: How to Build a Monthly Giving Program at Your Non-Profit.

What is a Monthly Giving Program?

Monthly giving programs allow your organization to collect a certain amount from your donors’ credit cards or bank accounts every month to support your work.  With these programs, your donors preauthorize your non-profit to withdraw a gift every month, and your non-profit reaps the rewards of having a stable base of recurring income that comes in every single month, without you having to make calls or send out reminder letters.

Monthly giving programs are immensely important because…

  • Monthly giving donors give more to the organizations they support
  • Organizations using monthly giving build a strong  and predictable base of ongoing revenue
  • Recurring payment programs allow non-profits to lower fundraising costs
  • Monthly giving donors have stronger relationships with the non-profits they support and keep giving longer than other types of donors

Monthly giving doesn’t just happen – in order to launch a program at your non-profit, you need to put a strong system in place and implement a plan for getting donors and prospects signed-up for the program.  This class will teach you everything you need to know to implement a successful program at your organization.

What’s in the Class?

How to Build a Monthly Giving Program at Your Non-Profit will run from Monday, March 14th through Friday, April 8th.  The class runs completely online, and all materials will be delivered electronically.

Every Monday, you will receive (by e-mail) comprehensive class guides and worksheets covering that week’s topic.  You can read the guides on your computer, smartphone, tablet or e-reader, or print them out to read at your convenience.

Each guide contains 8-12 pages and presents everything you need to know about how to build, grow, and sustain a monthly giving program at your organization.  Plus, you’ll receive lots of supplementary guides, webinars and more…
