Fundraising Strategy for Today’s Donors
Online fundraising is growing faster than all types of fundraising. In 2017, online fundraising in the last few days of the year increased by a whopping 38% over the year before. This is how your donors want to give, but too many non-profits are feeling left behind by technology.
Here’s the truth, though: organizations that are raising the most online don’t rely on fundraising technology, they rely on good old-fashioned donor strategy that makes smart use of technology.
Our practice focuses on smart, tech-savvy fundraising that:
Increases donors to your organization (we're talking all kinds of donors here: individual, corporate, and foundation)
Makes donors feel thanked and appreciated
Grows year over year
Doesn’t feel relentless, annoying, or salesy
Doesn’t involve major investments of time, software, or knowledge of technology (seriously)
We start with a free one hour conversation about your organization. (Sometimes this is all it takes to get going!) Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
