Fundraising best practices have rapidly evolved over this past year. As we move forward into the second half of 2021, some trends are likely to fade in importance, but many have the potential to stick around far into the future. Determining which trends are here to stay is vital for nonprofits to effectively fundraise, train their staff, and grow throughout the year.
As a volunteer management leader, this past year has probably thrown you for a loop. With a global pandemic keeping people indoors and most in-person group gatherings on pause, engaging and retaining your current volunteer base is more difficult than ever. No longer can you train your volunteers face-to-face or host exciting events that bring your volunteers together.
