AFP Edmonton & Area Chapter: Primer on Rural Fundraising
Please join us on Thursday, February 4 as Malcolm Radke walks us through connecting with rural donors
About the session:
With 1 in 5 Canadians living in a rural setting, this donor base represents a huge potential new funding source for charities of all sizes. For these donors, philanthropic values and social challenges in small towns can differ drastically from big city settings. In this session we will look at how fundraising best-practices can be tailored for success connecting with rural donors, for both small and large fundraising organizations. We will examine key differences in rural vs urban fundraising, and how fundraisers can connect with the heart of the small town donor.
1. The unique traits and interests of rural donors
2. Key differences and similarities in rural vs urban fundraising
3. Rural donor engagement strategies for both small and large organizations
