Where Is The Next Wave of Supporters and How Can Nonprofits Engage Them? Part 1 of 2

Posted by Grant Flores on Apr 13, 2015 1:38:00 PM

Let me start by saying I’m your typical Millennial. Let me also say that I absolutely love nonprofits.  Really.  I talk with them every single day and these are people who don’t just donate money, or a day or two of their time a year.  They dedicate their whole life to helping others.  They’re hard working people who care deeply.  They know every dollar counts; and executive directors and board members have to justify how those dollars are spent.  It’s not easy.  I don’t envy their job, but I sure do respect them for it. I’m 35 – and so technically I’m between a Millennial and a Generation X’er.  I have traits of both however I think I lean slightly more Millennial than Xer.  I use social media, text, and am more connected than ever before.  But, I also remember a time when I wasn’t staring at my phone like I want to dive into it.  I’ve even put myself in Facebook timeout before.

At one point in time, the word “mobile” referred to a device that you used for only phone calls and text messages. A recent study by Pew Research Center found that 58% of American adults own a smart phone. With the use of smart phones becoming more prevalent, the word “mobile” has evolved into so much more. Think about all of the things you use your mobile phone for; checking emails, sending and receiving calls and texts, posting to social networks, sharing videos with friends, etc. Although people are now using their mobile phones to communicate through these additional channels, open rates for text messages still remain the highest. With 97% of people opening text messages, it is imperative to use this channel to amplify all of your other communication efforts.

How to Adopt a Donor-Centric Approach to Fundraising

Posted by Yosuke Carter on Jul 11, 2014 3:42:00 PM

donor-centric-fundraising-01Imagine if you could attract donors who not only donated to your nonprofit, but got their friends and family to donate as well.

This might be something that might (or might not) sound good in theory, but how can nonprofit leaders put this into practice?

Whether you're a nonprofit or for-profit business, this timeless formula is the foundation for any desired result:

Thoughts + Beliefs + Actions = Results

You may already be embracing the key elements of donor-centric fundraising, but in an age where technologies are evolving quickly, we need to go beyond thanking donors promptly, making warm calls, and cultivating relationships.
