More than 350 people with dogs put their best paws forward to support these two landmark organizations. We hope you will join us for the 8th Annual on Saturday, February 15, 2020!

Equally at home performing old and new music, Aperture Duo actively commissions diverse new works to expand the violin and viola duo repertoire.

American cellist Ashley Bathgate has been described as an “eloquent new music interpreter” (New York Times) and “a glorious cellist” (Washington Post) who combines “bittersweet lyricism along with ferocious chops” (New York Magazine). Her “impish ferocity,” “rich tone,” and “imaginative phrasing” (New York Times) have made her one of the most sought-after performers of her time. The desire to create a dynamic energy exchange with her audience and build upon the ensuing chemistry is a pillar of Bathgate’s philosophy as a performer.

Where does your organization focus most of its fundraising energy? Chances are, the answer is getting more donors. But what about keeping your current donors?
Research shows that nearly three out of every four new donors leave an organization and never come back.
This has led many to focus less on acquiring new supporters and more on nurturing the relationships that they already have.
Join us for this interactive webinar with Leichtag Foundation’s Vice President of Philanthropy Sharyn Goodson, and Senior Manager of Philanthropy & Communications Jessica Kort.
We will explore:
- Why organizations lose donors and money
- How keeping donors increases fundraising success
- Opportunities to build donor relationships
- Elements of a successful donor retention plan
