Giving Days: One Day to Make a Big Impact
Katie Schroeder and Megan Torkelson

Date: Thursday, August 20, 2020

Time: 12:30 p.m. CT

Giving days can be an effective way to increase donors and dollars. They can also be an opportunity to creatively engage your community. Hear from the annual giving teams at Gustavus Adolphus College and Luther College as they share lessons learned from successfully growing their giving days over the past few years. From the key successes to the epic flops, come hear about what is new, working well, and also growing stale in the world of giving days.
