- 7 Medical Procedures That Are Not Covered by Health Insurance
By Michael Austin - Wednesday Nov 22, 2017
Many people apply for a health insurance in the hopes that whenever they have medical problems, it can help them cover the costs. Health insurances are pretty expensive and they take a sizable portion of your total salary. It is really helpful as it can truly cut your health expenses down. Unfortunately, a lot of […]

- 10 Insights from the Toronto AFP Congress 2017
By Gail Perry - Friday Nov 24, 2017
This week, AFP Congress in Toronto presented some amazing international speakers who are on the cutting edge of fundraising today.
There's so much change happening in fundraising all around the world.
We are learning how to do the traditional tactics better, and we're continually developing new and better ways to communicate and ask.
Here’s a list of ideas that I hope will provoke you to refresh, tweak, revise, and reformulate your own fundraising.
There are also new ways to think about old school tactics - always useful when you are seeking change, rallying your board, and searching for planned and major gifts!
1. When everybody in the organization embraces philanthropy, you'll raise much more money.
Study after study shows that a strong culture of philanthropy = more revenue for your mission.
2. Your planned giving prospects love talking to you on the telephone.
They love the telephone. And they love talking.
The phone engages them in a one on one conversation, and you can find out why they give.
AND - your donors will feel like they’ve been heard. That's huge.
3. Acknowledge the power of social networks to influence people and causes.
Colin Habberton, of the Relativ Group in Cape Town, reminded us to be aware of the vast power of social networks.
“Facebook is not going away,” he said. " It will only get stronger."
4. The aim of a brochure is to create something that people might keep and cherish.
Derek Humphries, of the DTV Group in The Netherlands challenged us.
If you are creating print materials, then make them memorable.
Do your materials stand up to this test? :)
5. Your event sponsors want exclusivity and differentiation.
Bernie Colterman, of the Centre of Excellence for Public Sector Marketing said to trash the traditional levels of sponsorship.
Instead offer specific and separate benefits to each sponsor.
6. Soft skills is really what leadership is all about.
7. Ask the tough questions if you want to build a successful organization.
Maeve Strathy, of Blakely, encouraged us to push for honesty in our organizations.
Ask the strategic questions:
- How do we build a successful org?
- How do we get to be successful?
- Do we agree about what success looks like?
8. Your “Fund a Need” appeal is a gift from the heart. The auction is a sale of tangible goods.
Layne, The Auctionista, BAS reminded us to play up the “Fund a Need.”
Do it with “theatrics.”
Keep a client up there on the platform with the auctioneer.
Make it emotional.
9. Focus more on the few people who love you.
They will convert better.
And they will give you a higher gift, said Shanelle Newton Clapham, MA, founder of Parachute Digital in Australia.
10. Your case for support needs to read like an investment prospectus.
Bill Bartolini, ACFRE, Senior Philanthropic Advisor Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State is always a fun speaker to hear.
Bill said when writing to donors, see if you can encapsulate what you do in one sentence. (Love that!)
Surveys are unbelievably powerful in planned giving because donors want to talk about themselves.
David Love, CFRE of Agents of Good, reminded us to ask donors "what do you think about the work we do?"
You'll probably get back pages of handwritten information from your donor about her connection and love for your work. Every donor has a story.
Hope these new ideas and twists on old ideas will help you rev up your mission, your case, your communications, and your donors!
