The old ways aren’t working like they used to. Tried-and-true fundraising strategies are becoming less effective, while new, digital tools allow dioceses and schools to easily find and connect with donors in ways that were previously unimaginable. Nic Prenger, founder and CEO of Prenger Solutions Group, will present research and advice for how Catholic Schools, Dioceses and Foundations can adapt and thrive in this new, all-digital world. He will share fresh insights into how schools and dioceses can boost their annual giving, reach new donors and build consistent revenue streams through monthly, online donors.
