Much has changed with the recent WealthEngineTM upgrade to WE9. This webinar evolved from discussions with many clients who are finding both the time and urgency to dig deeper for philanthropic dollars in these uncertain times. A small fee will be used to support the heroes at Cape Cod Healthcare in their response to Covid-19. All proceeds will be donated to the Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation. Here is some of what we will cover.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Current WE clients who want to take leverage this period of uncertainty by using the powerful wealth intelligence tools that they subscribe to. Past WE clients who want to learn what has changed since they last used WE and organizations currently considering WE for wealth intelligence.

One silver lining of work remotely: those who manage your database may have fewer interruptions and more time to focus on donor data. Tracking donors’ interests and interactions and adapting your offerings to them is a surefire way to elevate your fundraising results. But it takes a lot of time and attention to maintain accurate and up-to-date information on your supporters. Learn ow to identify trouble spots in your data and develop plans for correcting them. Plus, you’ll get tips for creating a user manual to standardize practices and ensure continuity during staff transitions.  This webinar is worth 1.25 CFRE credits.


New England Development Research Association’s 34th annual Conference. Premier gathering of prospect research professionals in New England.

CANCELLED due to Covid-19Message from NEDRA: NEDRA is committed to the health and well-being of our members, staff, and community.  Several of you have inquired as to the status of our annual conference.  As you know, the situation has been changing rapidly, including the CDC’s guidance on 3/15/2020 to cancel or postpone in-person events of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks.  NEDRAcon2020 will therefore no longer be taking place on May 6-8 in Portland, ME.  NEDRA will be working to process refunds for those who have already registered, and will also be working with the hotel on the cancellation of rooms booked for the conference.

The NEDRA Board is currently investigating all available options regarding a contingency plan for NEDRAcon2020 and want to be as transparent as possible as we navigate such uncharted territory.  We will continue to communicate updates via email as information becomes available.
