Giving Days are an exciting, fun way to engage your community. But there can be a lot of moving pieces - especially as you start to expand and look for areas of growth year-over-year. So, where should you begin each year?
The most successful Giving Day campaigns begin with setting clear goals. But why not just dive in and start creating your fundraising profile or writing donor communications? The answer is simple. Setting initial goals helps your team paint a clear picture of your fundraising objectives so expectations can be met and donors and fundraisers know how to best support your initiatives.
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.
Does your nonprofit currently have a way of keeping track of your fundraising metrics?
First impressions are important. If you’ve ever been to a job interview or on a first date, I’m sure you know this. Mothers everywhere have reiterated these values for ages. An improperly tucked shirt could mean the difference between getting a call back or not. A rogue piece of parsley in your teeth could send your date running. You get the picture.
