Here are 3 things you can do this year to appeal to all donors.
Understanding the motivations of different donor groups is an essential part of fundraising. Organizations need to know why donors choose to support their cause and how best to appeal to them. Thanks to the advancement and availability of data, research, and analytics, organizations can get a really good picture of who their donors are. Tracking donor behavior and adjusting based on the data will lead to increased donations for your organization.
As much as understanding is important to your organization it is also important to your donors. People are more likely to donate when they feel connected and invested in your organization. With the right messaging, you can connect with your contacts and get them reinvested in your mission.
Understand that the giving climate is changing and in order to acclimate you need to provide options. Using a multichannel approach not only allows you a broad reach but also options for processing donations. Make sure to offer a recurring donations option as well - motivate your donors to give back more often and promote the option to chunk a generous donation over time.
