ADVANCEMENT AND ALUMNI

Engagement & Donor Events

You’re using Salesforce to build lifelong alumni and donor relationships, but your events take a lot of time to plan, and worse yet, it’s hard to prove their ROI in the alumni journey. When you need to show how alumni events are increasing engagement and fundraising, Blackthorn can help
1

Create and manage any type of alumni event in Salesforce. Work with alumni to coordinate a meetup, host a private dinner, or let your team run large alumni gatherings like tailgates and fundraising efforts. Events can be online or in person

2

Embed a calendar view that automatically shows those events on your public-facing website, or use communities to show events relevant to the user.

3

Show the impact your fundraising events have on overall institutional goals.
