You face the challenge we call ‘donor development’ – which means, of course, finding ways of influencing your committed supporters to give more and more. It’s a process that’s most critical in difficult times, when your supporters are likely to be feeling the pinch themselves. Your targeting needs to be exact, and you need tools that let you identify what works (and what doesn’t) as expertly as any marketing professional. You need to maintain your donor base, keeping an eye on attrition and response rates while continuously recruiting new support. You need to process, thank and bank. And aim for zero complaints.
We know how these things join up.
