About Event

Over the past 10 months, Wartburg College has achieved remarkable success in revitalizing its annual giving program under new leadership. In this insightful case study session, Matthew Schneider, Wartburg's Director of Annual Giving, will share key strategies and tactics that drove stellar results, including:

  • A 41.70% increase in overall annual giving

  • An 83.59% surge in athletic donations

  • A 46.39% boost in donor participation rates

  • Over 2,230 first-time donors

Attendees will learn how Wartburg implemented fresh approaches to donor cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship to rally broader support from alumni, parents, and friends. Schneider will reveal fundraising best practices that expanded the donor base, re-energized giving among existing supporters, and positioned the annual giving program for long-term sustainable growth.

Whether restructuring an annual fund or seeking to elevate giving results, this session offers a valuable opportunity to gain proven insights from an accomplished practitioner in the field. Join your peers for this lunch presentation to explore key takeaways you can apply at your own institution.

About: The Donor Participation Project (DPP) is a community of fundraisers who co-create solutions to reverse the nationwide decline in donor participation (20 million US households lost between 2000-2016).

  • ​This event will take place over Zoom.
