Let's Talk Fundraising Effectiveness!

While I don’t love being on video, I do love talking about fundraising effectiveness! This fantastic tool can help you answer big questions like:

  • Do we have a healthy development program?
  • Are we raising enough money to support our mission?
  • Do we have the right balance of risk and reward?
  • Have we assessed our development program in the last three years?
  • To what extent are we reliant on our top funders?
  • What is our fundraising ROI?
  • How efficient and effective are our fundraising campaigns?
  • Should we spend more money on direct mail and digital fundraising?
  • Is there data to support why our staff might be feeling overextended or burned out?
  • Can the data support bringing an additional resource to the development team?

If you’ve been wondering about any of the questions above if might be time for a fundraising effectiveness analysis. Investing in sound, strategic fundraising efforts that fund your organization’s programs and strike the appropriate balance of risk and reward is the key to a healthy development program.
