It started with the #donorlove principles we use to guide us in our work.
Now it’s a one or two day event, tailored for your audience.
It’s an emotional and quirky and fun masterclass with 4 of the best fundraisers in the world. Open-minded and open-hearted humans who want to help you…who want to answer your questions during the breaks…who want to hang out with good people…who want to eat barbecue and talk about changing the world.
Your #donorlove guides
Agent Jen Love is a storyteller. And not in a poetic sense. In a fumbling, arm-waving, half-sentence-speaking, let’s-get-to-the-heart-and-the-feelings sense. Write drunk, edit sober… even if you’re only drunk on emotions. Inhaling an attitude of gratitude and exhaling #donorlove, Jen’s title is partner at Agents of Good, a collective of donor champions.
Beate – or Bea as she’s known among those with less than stellar Scandinavian pronounciation – runs fundraising agency b.bold out of Oslo, Norway. She specialises in digital fundraising: non-profit web design, content strategy and social media. Before starting her own company, Beate headed digital fundraising at the Norwegian Cancer Society for six years. This is where she discovered that her big passion in life is a well-designed donation form.

He is a partner at Agents of Good, a fundraising and communications collaboration, that is solely focused on #donorlove. Jen describes him as “authentic.” He’s known to be a passionate champion for the needs of donors and often, when provoked, will wave his hands and raise his voice an octave as he shares his frustration and opinions.
In his current role, he works with charities and agencies around the world to help tell better stories and to inspire donors to give, both online and offline.
