    My name is Shasta Zielke and I’m the Membership and Event Manager at Oregon Wild. I was listening in on your webinar this morning about how to find new donors and retain current ones.

    I appreciated what you had to say about surveying donors, calling lapsed donors, and ways to find new people through lists, etc. Some of these ideas I’ve been working to implement in my current role (so it’s good to know I’m on the right track) and others I hadn’t though of (like using Business Journal lists). Altogether, very helpful ideas!

  2. Mazarine

    It was EXTREMELY engaging and helpful. I am brand new to the non-profit sector and was happily thrown into the marketing and development side of the business, so I am working on next to no experience and just soaking all the information in.

    I found your presentation to be clear and concise, and your speaking to be warm, inviting, and calm. I got excited about everything just by listening and watching!
