How to Revolutionize Your Monthly Giving Program

Monday, October 24

Multnomah Athletic Club

It sounds like such an easy concept: getting people to give a small amount every month. We all know how golden monthly donors are, but how do we get them to convert from annual and one-off gifts to monthly gifts? How then do we take them on a donor journey and build their lifetime value? Find out from an international fundraising expert who has helped organizations across the globe dramatically increase their income.

Daryl Upsall, FInstF

Based in Madrid, Spain, Daryl Upsall has worked with over 230 non-profits in 62 countries in the past 33 years. A pioneer of online/digital fundraising in the early 1990s, Daryl is known for fundraising leadership and innovation. He is also credited as being one of the creators of the global fundraising phenomenon known as "face to face fundraising".

As the International Fundraising Director for Greenpeace International in the 1990s, Daryl doubled the organization’s global net income, raising more than $1 billion USD.

His agency Daryl Upsall & Associates SL provides strategic consulting support to most of the world’s leading INGOs, and his executive search agency Daryl Upsall Consulting International SL, has successfully hired over 416 posts for 175 clients in 121 locations, worldwide.  

Daryl also co-owns Spain's leading telephone fundraising The Fundraising Company SL, and face to face fundraising agencies International Fundraising in Spain in Italy, Portugal, Poland, Mexico, Colombia and Peru. In Spain his agencies have raised around $1 billion USD for NGO clients in the last decade.

Daryl is a Fellow of the UK Institute of Fundraising (FInstF) and Vice-Chair of AFP’s Center for Fundraising Innovation, which is responsible for all aspects of AFP education and professional development. His proudest moment in fundraising was a personal thank you from Nelson Mandela, for raising over $2.5 million USD for Mandela’s election campaign.
