In the rush of the day-to-day at your nonprofit, it’s hard to make time to reflect and assess your performance against your goals. With the advent of the Fundraising Effectiveness Project--supported by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Bloomerang, and others--organizations that measure will thrive. Those that don’t will not be as competitive, because they will lack vital data to make informed decisions.
The measurement of key performance indicators in fundraising has become a best practice, and you don’t want your organization to fall behind. Be a data-driven organization, know your fundraising health, and measure the work you do every day. If you have a spreadsheet and can do simple math, you can use fundraising metrics to improve your operations and help your organization grow.
You can do it! Join Heather to learn how.
What we will cover during the webinar:
The top eight areas of fundraising performance measurement
How the amount of money you raise is the not the most important metric you’ll assess
How to measure fundraising performance over time
How to use fundraising metrics to improve the quality and result of your fundraising efforts
Key Benefits of this Webinar:
Your development plan is more likely to succeed if it is built upon data.
You will be able to better target your fundraising activities on those with the highest return on investment.
You will have the metrics to assess your organization’s fundraising health and long-term (potential) sustainability.
You will better understand how you’re doing against the goals you’ve set.
