Every organization is different. “Giving Days” work for some but not others. You know your donors, but is it hard to face adding a giving day to your schedule when you’re having trouble remembering what day it is? Or is participating in a Giving Day an opportunity to further educate your donors, even if you don’t raise a lot of money? In this CWR Academy development webinar, hear how two congregations explain their different approaches to Giving Days.
