Your donors are talking to you, do you hear what they’re saying?
If fundraising is about relationships, then data is the way donors communicate back to us – who they are, what they value, and how they see themselves as part of your org’s mission. On May 13 fundraisers the world over are coming together for a Data Slam!
Remember Poetry Slams? Loud, lively, fun events that moved poetry into the world of every day. That’s what we’re going to do with fundraising data. Whether you’re a frontline fundraiser looking to learn more from what donors are telling us or a tech-savvy, all-things-data Excel jockey, we’ve got a session for you!

Self Determination and the Future of Data
Amy Sample Ward
The way we structure our world influences what we think is possible and what we allow to take shape. This is true in technology, in data, in fundraising, and social change work in general. What does it look like when we release those structures? What is made possible in ourselves when who we are and what we do is not confined to a predetermined check box? Together, let’s envision the possibilities of a better world we can make tomorrow through the changes we make today.
Data, Data Everywhere
We are swimming in data, but often bone dry on wisdom. Why is getting more out of data such a challenge? What does it take to embrace using data? Who are organisations that have become truly data driven? Have you heard about Digital Transformation? How could you not! It has become the latest buzzword for CEOs, Board Members, and would-be change agents. But what are we really talking about and what are the implications for charities? Real digital transformation must use digital strategies, processes, and tools to do something that transforms the organization – not just improves current practice. Join Steve MacLaughlin, vice president of product management at Blackbaud and best selling author of Data Driven Nonprofits to explore and demystify data in the social good sector.
Respect Your Donors with Gender-Inclusive Data
Using gender pronouns and salutations can make or break an interaction with any donor, but especially trans and nonbinary donors. Don’t narrow your prospects by assuming donors feel most respected by traditional gendered titles. Improve your relationships and grow your base by embracing gender-inclusive data practices.
