People support nonprofits and the causes they champion because of an emotional connection. Hope, compassion, guilt, fear and other emotions drive people to tackle the world's problems — or support others who are working on the front lines. That's where stories come in. Facts and figures can be mind-numbing, but a story opens ears, eyes, minds and hearts.

Fundraising time is scarce and precious, so why waste it chasing donors who are DOA - dead on arrival? Flip prospecting upside down by asking yourself, "Is this donor good enough for me?" This webinar will show you how to figure out who's "good enough" to justify investing your time and energy, and how to tell the difference between "worth it," "so-so," and "lose their phone number." It all starts with your nonprofit's values.
