Non-Profit Governance, Fundraising, Strategy

Donor and prospect profiles: Non-Profit Governance, Fundraising, Strategy: The inevitable impact of the ongoing recession on charitable donations and an aging donor profile has encouraged many organizations to examine their donor and prospect profiles and also explore new techniques which are designed to make giving easier and to attract new donors. Recent changes in mobile fundraising regulations and the growth of social media have the potential to create an inevitable charity fundraising revolution.

Successful fundraising strategies:

Non-profit organizations are also experiencing the inherent challenges in planning and executing successful fundraising strategies – from profiling donors to finding causes that resonate, to targeting the right donors to sustain top line growth in donations. A key need in donor profiling is increased visibility of current donors and prospects:

  • Psycho-socio demographic profiles of current donors and most important prospects
  • Opportunities to address gaps in some donor segments based on geo-demographic variables
  • Media consumption patterns of donors and prospects across online, print, TV, radio etc.
  • Product purchasing patterns of donors – purchase frequency, dollar outlays, and loyalty metrics.
