20NTC Session Proposal

Turn your donors into advocates: building strong issue-based communities


Donors want to do more, and it’s up to us to ask them. Meanwhile, there’s an increasing need for us to take a stronger role in advocating for the issues that are central to our mission – and build powerful communities of support for our causes.

In this session, we’ll explore how to introduce advocacy to your existing donors in a meaningful way, and to engage new supporters on the issues you both care about. We’ll look at case studies that prove that advocacy, as part of your overall community and donor engagement strategies, will boost fundraising results and should be a central part of your integrated fundraising, comms and digital strategies.

Learning Outcomes

  • Acquire new supporters with low barrier issue-based actions.
  • A simple step-by-step checklist for building your plan, and how to work with other teams to get it done.
  • Building the case for your existing donors to show up for your cause.
