The Internet has provided many options for nonprofits to ask for gifts and raise awareness of their missions. One of the biggest concerns for modern, connected charitable organizations is managing all the email, social media and mobile outreach channels they use to connect with current donors and attract new supporters. Organizations that are finding success in managing all of these different electronic efforts should make sure they're also including one of the most effective tools for fundraising in the mix: face-to-face meetings. It can be easy to focus on the efficiency of mass communication, but meetings in person offers advantages that simply aren't present with other methods.
Here are a few reasons why nonprofits shouldn't neglect face-to-face communication in their development efforts:

Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
