With Bob Burdenski
Thursday, September 7th In Charleston, SC
CASE Crystal Apple teacher,
Innovations in Annual Giving author, and international consultant Bob Burdenski brings the most innovative new annual, regular and sustaining giving strategies to Charleston in a special one-day workshop.  Give your annual giving program an upgrade,  and collect a full day's worth of new ideas and innovations for annual giving effectiveness.   Bob's programs are famous for featuring many examples from a worldwide range of institutions.   Bob sees the best new ideas in annual giving -- come and see the latest he has to share. 
The day's agenda will include:
Highlights From The 18th-Annual Annual Giving Appeal Exchange
More than 300 institutions shared their appeals this year, with multimedia samples from all facets of annual giving from all kinds of institutions.  Bob shows the best of this year's bunch.
Online Innovations in Annual Giving   Web giving strategies are growing fast. See the latest in social media (including advanced ideas for Facebook and LinkedIn), day-of-giving appeals, crowdfunding, Web pages, remarketing.  Learn about the smartest apps, tools, and solutions for your online annual giving toolkit.
Special Lunch Sponsor: ThankView
ThankView co-founder and CEO JD Beebe will provide an overview of his smart new p ersonalized donor video   stewardship tool.
The Language of Annual Giving
Bob shares the most creative and smart samples for crafting the case for support.  What's the difference between charitable support and philanthropic support?  How do themes of gratitude, nostalgia, affinity, peer pressure, specificity and urgency all impact a donor's decision to give?
Special Session:  
The College of Charleston's Parents' Fund
Director of Annual Giving Programs Laurie Soenen will provide an overview of the College's highly-successful Parents' Fund program.  Parent interest in your institution is high -- for a little while.  How do you quickly and effectively engage them as supporters? 
A Closing Annual Giving Forum
It's the 25th anniversary of FundList, and we'll close the day with some "on-location" FundList-style therapy and dialogue with your annual giving colleagues.  Are you the only one facing a challenge?  Probably not! A "last call" session of questions and topics to conclude the day.
This workshop will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with lunch and pdf copies of all 150+ slides included with your registration.
