How’s Your Fundraising Really Working? Assessing Your Development Program

We’re doing just great with our fundraising! Or are you? How many donors did you retain this year? Are you getting more grants than ever with less effort? Do you have more businesses supporting you? Are your events raising more money and getting better attendance? Are you making more major gift calls? Is your board fully on board with fundraising? Are more volunteers getting involved with your fundraising program?

How easily can you even answer these questions?

Too many times, development officers set goals for next year without assessing the past year’s results honestly and in depth. This webinar will show you how to build the foundation of strong development plan by taking the first step—assessing past performance.

Linda Lysakowski, ACFRE, author of The Development Plan, and co-author of CharityChannel’s’ Quick Guide to Creating Your Development Plan and The Leaky Bucket, and more than a dozen more books, will take you through the steps to assess your development program so you develop a realistic plan to improve your results next year.

In this free webinar you will learn:

  • What needs to be evaluated
  • Where you can get the information you need
  • How to measure success with leading indicators, rather than just using trailing indicators
  • How to set up ongoing evaluation tools
