WHAT THE FUNDRAISING
160: The People Behind the Products: Maximize Donor Engagement: Secrets to Modern Fundraising with Owen O'Doherty
“Maintain the relationship through the dip and not lose heart, those same people, although they might be giving a little bit less, they’ll come back very heavy to support you when they can.”
– Owen O’Doherty
In this episode of What the Fundraising Podcast…
If you’re feeling frustrated and overwhelmed by the lack of results from your traditional fundraising methods, such as direct mail campaigns and in-person events, then you are not alone! Despite your best efforts, you may be experiencing a decline in donor engagement and a struggle to meet your fundraising goals. Instead of seeing increased support and financial contributions, you may be witnessing apathy from potential donors who are bombarded with appeals and are looking for more personalized and interactive ways to connect with your cause.
Meet Owen O’Doherty, a thoughtful innovator and the mind behind DonorSee. With a deep-seated passion for product development, with the overarching goal of making a difference, Owen has spent years shaping technology for good. His first venture was a healthtech platform for caregiving, born from personal experience and a desire to support families in similar situations. His ongoing dedication led him to DonorSee, where he leverages technology to allow nonprofits to modernize fundraising and connect with communities on a deeper level.
