About the Event

In our industry, we have many "untouchable" donor recognition practices that have been framed as time-honored traditions. These may include honor rolls, recognition and giving societies, tchotchkes and gift giving, namings, groundbreakings, check presentations, and more! In reality, they may be dated, non-effective, and exclusive practices. Every organization is a little different based on its unique culture. Join us for a candid conversation, point-counterpoint style, with two of the best in the industry on whether these traditions are truly effective and vital means of recognizing donors. We will work together to turn our nays to yays as we bring solutions, creative brainstorming, and plenty of samples and case studies to the table as well. You don't want to miss this hotly contested topic!
