The Alumni & Donor Experience Crystal Ball

Strategies for engaging stakeholders in higher education advancement continue to evolve, but what direction are these changes taking us? Join host Ryan Catherwood and panelists Chris Marshall, Cindy Fredrick, and Andy Shaindlin for a discussion of the latest trends in alumni and donor engagement.

At colleges and universities around the world, the integrated advancement model continues to change its shape to meet the institution’s needs. More than ever before, alumni teams are merging with annual giving, advancement communications, and donor relations groups to create a more synchronized strategy for donor pipeline development. Webinar attendees will hear panelists discuss these changing alignments and their implications for senior advancement leaders.

The panel discusses what’s next for advancement teams, foundations, and alumni associations and share their thoughts on the broader forces that will shape our post-pandemic engagement strategies forward into the future. Cindy, Chris, and Andy will share their thoughts on some of the top innovations in alumni and donor engagement from around the world
