The Fundraising Rock Band

Kivi's Nonprofit Communications Blog

The Fundraising Rock Band. Fundraising is a lot like a rock band. A good program, like a good band, needs to get the right players doing the right things. Whether you’re raising funds through direct mail, online, or any other medium, the drums of your fundraising band are the production: Getting it produced, printed and mailed right. There isn’t that much glamour in the back of the band, but if you don’t get it right, everything else falls apart.

The First Country Band of Cause Marketing?

Cause Related Marketing

If you twisted my arm today I’d say the Zac Brown Band. Marketing bands and their music these days is a whole lot different than it was when the labels did all the promotions (and took the lion's share of the revenue). The resulting lower profit margins for the labels demands that bands assume greater responsibility for their own promotion. For the very smartest bands these new revenue models can actually be more lucrative.

And The Band Played On

The Agitator

As Roger wrote last Friday, commenting on the latest Fundraising Effectiveness Report , the nonprofit sector is losing donors faster than it’s gaining them. I’d put it more bluntly … we’re on a sinking ship. Hey, but it’s only a slow leak. At an annual net loss of ‘only’ 3%, it will take us nearly 35 years to entirely empty the bucket. Most of today’s senior fundraisers will be dead and buried well before then.
