Supporter Connection Survey: The Most Powerful Fundraising Tool

Discover mid-level and major donors you didn’t know you had. You will be able to uncover millions worth of legacy, monthly, and major gifts and improve your ability to communicate with each donor. This fundraising training course, taught by Sean Triner, is your hands-on guide to creating a survey that’s proven to dramatically increase revenue.

The Supporter Connection Survey will rock your world! And this course will show you how to produce the survey and put the results to work. It frequently QUADRUPLES the value of donations from donors surveyed. Many of our members tell us this is their favorite appeal they’ve ever worked on.

Find out how to ask the right questions that not only engage donors, but also uncover those who are ready to do MORE with you. You’ll find mid-level and even major donors who have been “hiding in plain sight.” You’ll find donors ready to include your organization in their Wills — if you ask!

You’ll learn what your most loyal donors love about your organization. Knowing this — and using it — is donor-centrism taken to a new level!

Four modules, each designed to put your survey to work:

  1. Planning for Your Supporter Connection Survey
  2. Your Survey Questions
  3. Getting the Survey Out the Door
  4. Making It All Count. Handling Responses and Communicating with Your Donors

PLUS — Bonus material that will help you bring your learnings to life, including lots of examples of our members’ successful surveys.

“As a very small charity with 600 donors and two members of staff, this has been the best value, the best training, and potentially, the best long-term initiative that we have ever done. I would highly recommend the course.”
