  • Is Your Organization Aiming for the Fundraising Bull’s Eye?
    By Gail Perry - Friday May 26, 2017

    Where are you with your fundraising plans?

    Are you playing the fundraising "dart game" by any chance?

    There's a game that many nonprofits play called “Aim for the Fundraising Bull’s Eye.”

    It’s the game of searching, searching for the fundraising strategy that will finally pay off.

    The problem is - that it’s a guessing game.

    When you have to guess your way to increased fundraising contributions and gifts - it’s doubtful that you’ll actually hit the bulls eye.  

    Let’s have a bit of fun and see where your organization stacks up in the “Aim for The Fundraising Bull’s Eye” game.  :)

    Let’s see how efficient and effective your own fundraising plans, strategies and tactics are.

    Outer Ring Fundraising

    When your darts keep hitting the outer ring, alas, you're clearly in a “Hit or Miss” situation.

    Your “strategy” — if you can call it that — is all over the place.  Just like these old darts.

    And your fundraising is floundering as a result. Here's what's probably happening: 

    • Your organization sets fundraising goals in a vacuum, based on various people’s personal opinions and preferences. (“I can’t stand direct mail!”) 
    • Your board is detached and disengaged. They are uncomfortable with the idea of fundraising - which they equate with “asking for money.”
    • Your organization’s leadership is also nervous about fundraising - so there’s a distant relationship with fundraising staff. 
    • Your organization’s donors think they are personally treated like ATMs. Not a great recipe for long-term relationships!

    Inner Ring Fundraising

    You are moving toward the bull's eye on the dart board. Your fundraising plans are a work in progress.

    • You’re getting more internal people involved in the discussion, so there is broader support for fundraising among your colleagues.
    • Your board is more engaged. They are all donating, and they understand the importance of opening doors and making connections with their active and affluent friends.
    • Leadership gives fundraising staff a voice at the table. They listen and try to understand you. No one is coming at you at the 11th hour to fund a program you weren’t a part of from the start.
    • You’re thanking your donors. Quickly and with feeling. That’s good. They are beginning to feel like they are not exactly one-night stands as far as your organization is concerned.

    Bull's Eye Fundraising

    There’s a strong culture of philanthropy within your organization.

    • In the fundraising department, there's a plan everybody is following. 
    • Messaging is consistent and donor-centered. 
    • Direct mail folks aren’t afraid to turn “their” names over to major gifts, and major gifts regularly funnels names to planned giving.
    • Programs, marketing and communications, fundraising are all working collaboratively.
    • The lines of communication with leadership are open and flowing; your CEO is engaged with donors and supporting your team’s goals at all times.

    Your board is totally on board.

    • They’re engaged and excited about your mission - ready to take action and go to work.
    • They GIVE! Big and regularly.
    • They make introductions and use their connections to open doors.
    • They understand fundraising and are willing to be part of it (in ways that include asking but other ways as well).

    Your donors are happy.

    • Some have deep relationships with your organization.
    • You speak a donor-centered language.
    • You bless them with the opportunity to give, rather than trying to hit them with a hello and run away with their money.

    And a bonus sign that you’re in the bull’s-eye?

    • You’re raising money.
    • Awesome amounts of money. Mega-amounts. More money than you ever thought possible.
    • All because you are working from well-structured fundraising plans.

    If you hit the bull’s-eye — GREAT! And congratulations!

    But even if your dart ricocheted off the target, took off someone’s ear and flattened a tire in the parking lot, you can turn things around.

    Fundraising Plans Save The Day

    It all starts with a plan that everyone agrees on.  Then you can sleep at night. 

    If you need help creating a sane fundraising plan that will:

    • Help you focus your time and energy.
    • Control the flow of work in your office.
    • Protect you from your leadership’s fundraising “idea of the month.”
    • Allow you to be proactive rather than reactive.
    • Allow you to build confidence in your fundraising program.

    Then check out my brand new Highly Profitable Fundraising Toolkit.

    You'll get the templates, worksheets and 4 hours of video training with me to help you and your team MAX OUT your fundraising potential.

    Let's have some fun, lay down some terrific plans and change the world together!

  • Nonprofit leaders respond to the 2016 Presidential Election (round-up)
    Monday Nov 21, 2016

    It’s been almost two weeks since Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States--and frankly, I’m still processing it. As a progressive Brooklynite who somewhat unconsciously/somewhat joyfully lives in a bit of a bubble, I thought that the hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted America was something that would continue.

    I’ve gathered some of these posts below. These pieces show emotions and ideas that range from the practical: to go and create a better strategy, to find common ground, or to put out the fire and rebuild, to the galvanizing: to rise to the challenges, to speak out whenever we see anyone mistreating another person for who they are, and to push harder now for an inclusive society.

  • 29 Ideas for #GivingTuesday 2016 you haven’t thought of
    Monday Oct 10, 2016

    I recently attended an event at Whole Whale focused on #GivingTuesday ideas and they know their stuff! We heard from communicators at New York Cares, DonorsChoose.org, and more about how they're approaching #GivingTuesday and what's been successful for their organizations in the past. This article shares similar success stories and insider tips--it's a perfect resource to get your organization's creative juices flowing before November 29th. 

    -Laura Fisher

    This article was originally published on Wholewhale.comWhole Whale is a digital agency that uses data and technology to help nonprofits make an impact. 

    We hope you are participating in #GivingTuesday 2016 as the nonprofit sector tries to build a herd mentality in the same way that online retailers built up Cyber Monday. What’s more, the sector is trying to build a new unselfish social habit, which means it will take more nonprofit participation to compete with the existing holiday corporate messaging. This past year, Cyber Monday revenue grew 16%, topping $3 billion in sales (Adobe Digital Index 2015). In 2015, Giving Tuesday grew by 145% to a record total of $116.7 million in donations. This year Whole Whale analysts predict that #GivingTuesday will raise over $250 million, read more about this and other facts about #GivingTuesday).

    There are tons of #GivingTuesday guides, playbooks, toolkits, examples and stories so we decided to try to summarize some of the best ideas as well as add our own. Enjoy!

    1. Join #GivingTuesday. The rest of these tips don’t really make sense if you aren’t participating… List yourself on GivingTuesday.org/join
    2. Draft a quarterback. Have an internal point person executing the plan and creating wrap up analysis with learnings for next year (this doesn’t have to be your classic fundraising person either). Have them recruit a team of volunteers/super supporters from your network. Pro-tip: give this group a title like #GivingTuesday Advisors.
    3. Beat those pesky giving lines #GivingMonday. Look, if the generous profiteers at Kmart can start Black Friday at 6am on ThanksGiving – you can ‘open your doors’ early and count donations for your campaign starting Monday (or earlier). Feel free to use this joke when you do it.
    4. Use social norms and price anchoring. The average donation amount in 2013 was $140 (Blackbaud). Make this subtly known on your donation form options and copy. Yes, we know averages are wildly misleading – but it’s for a great cause. Geek out on more influence tactics
    5. Focus on new donor cultivation while using it as an opportunity to rally existing supporters to ‘friend raise’ and pull in their friends by donating themselves.
    6. A message from your constituents. Plan a Youtube video with recorded “I gave because” from your super supporters – with donate button. Release it on Monday and throw some ads behind it. Here is a great one the Michael J. Fox Foundation created from supporter letters.
    7. Host a live YouTube ‘telethon’, announce new donors and interact with social media interactions. Pro tip: register for YouTube.com/nonprofit and make sure you have a strong internet connection.
    8. Put your CEO in a dunk tank. Well it doesn’t have to be a dunk tank, but you get it. This idea is inspired by our friends at DoSomething.org who put their CEO, Nancy Lublin and COO, Aria Finger in a dunk tank and only dunked them if they hit a million for their annual event. We were there, it was awesome. Pro-tip: combine this with #7.
    9. Karma. Find a cause you care about and donate to it on #GivingTuesday. Never hurts to have (good) karma on your side.
    10. Schedule it. Schedule out your giving reminders across all major platforms using HooteSuite, Facebook scheduled posts, and your email scheduler. Try to analyze peak times your followers are active – we like FollowerWonk for analyzing followers on Twitter.
    11. Ink your supporters. Create temporary hand tattoos with your  {logo} + #GivingTuesday or #Unselfie. Send these to volunteers ahead of time, ask them to ask staff during lunch to collect. These can also be used as incentives for early giving or participation. Here are the cheapest ones we found – 1000 for $100
    12. Reputation matters. New volunteers will be evaluating new nonprofits based on rating sites. Check to make sure you are updated in places that matter: Guidestar.com, CharityNavigator.com, GreatNonprofits.org, Wikipedia.org.
    13. Time sucks suck… Participate, but don’t let this take too much time! Time is money, manage expectations on returns for your work.
    14. Start early. Trends for Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday show people gearing up in August/September.
    15. Blitz your message! Have super supporters schedule tweets that say “I gave to @{YourCharity} #GivingTuesday” for December 2nd, 2014. ThunderClap is a great tool for this.
    16. Better together– don’t worry about crowded messaging, we are increasing the size of the pie, which means your slice will be larger. Think about how you can collaborate with other orgs in your cause area. Donation averages per charity involved in 2012 & 2013 stayed relatively even as total charities involved increased by 250%.
    17. Matching Gifts are to #GivingTuesday as deals are to #CyberMonday.  Create urgency by creating a 24-48 hour period where donations will be matched. Use Double the Donation’s #GivingTuesday Matching Gift Pages for free.
    18. Don’t cannibalize your holiday messaging. This is just the start of the race – not the final sprint. Think about positioning this as participating in a social movement to combat the shitty commercialism that has taken over one of best excuses to eat turkey with in-laws.
    19. TEST YOUR DAMN DONATE PAGE. This should happen well before #GivingTuesday. We have had increases of 20% and higher for every page we have A/B Tested for our Whole Whale clients.
    20. First Tuesday giving. Offer an option for donors to repeat their donations on the first Tuesday of every month.
    21. Be a part of the conversation. Be hyperactive on social and consider running ads in the afternoon 1-4pm when donation activity peaked on #GivingTuesday in 2013 (Blackbaud).
    22. Prepare a landing page. Promote your Giving Tuesday campaign on your site’s homepage, and across subpages so that all visitors will know about it. Create a focused giving page just for #GivingTuesday and promote that exact page, don’t make people click to find your donate button please.
    23. Progress meter! Set a donation goal and show users the progress towards that amount. Pro-tip: feel free to raise the goal if donations start pouring in and try to seed early donations to get started. We like IndieGoGo and Tilt, but you can also fake this functionality by manually updating an image on your site as you hit milestones.
    24. Say thanks! Show a feed of Twitter users who have donated and try to thank each one that donates with #GivingTuesday.
    25. Make donations tangible. Will the money go toward a new program or needed equipment? Giving transparency can help your story when getting ‘fence-sitters’ to convert. Lakeside Chautauqua managed to raise $105k by focusing on a local restoration project in their community.
    26. Be #Unselfie (ish). Encourage your members to share their #unselfie(s) with you on Twitter, FB, and Instagram. Try to highlight the best stories – Once again, The Michael J. Fox Foundation did this very well in 2013.
    27. The best ideas are not in the room. Look to your supporters for great fundraising stories that you can bring national attention to.  The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation did this well by finding a 10 year-old who was selling barrettes to raise money to help her friend struggling with the disease.
    28. Don’t ignore corporate giving! Companies are just like people (#HobbyLobby) and may have employee giving programs you can tap into or find matching gifts through. America’s Charities is a leader in running workplace giving campaigns and has some great tips for #GivingTuesday corporate giving.
    29. Did it work? Create a December donation forecast, then measure total donations for December and on #GivingTuesday. Ask the question: Did we cannibalize giving, redistribute to Tuesday, or increase it?
