On the one hand, the fundraising year is almost two-thirds over. On the other hand, the ‘highest yield’ third of the year is just about to begin. Many fundraisers are using the ‘lull before the storm’ to ready your fundraising weapons and reaffirm or fine-tune your fall/year-end fundraising tactics. And … revisit your fundraising projections. How much of your annual revenue are you expecting to take in over the final four months of the year … 50%? Two-thirds?

Some of these organizations need a refresher course in appeal letter writing. Of course, you can make more than one ask a year, but first I need to be thanked, and thanked well, and hear from you regularly.

The post [PODCAST] Donor Communications Crash Course | Ft. Donor communications guru, Tom Ahern is a copywriter by trade. He knows the ins and outs of donor-centric fundraising and gave us some great tips for nonprofits.

The Agitator

Yes, there are some ‘uncontrollables’ that will influence your fundraising success in 2014 — consumers’ confidence about their economic well-being, major breaking events/tragedies (political or natural), and of course the extent to which you laid proper groundwork (or failed to) in 2013.

So much so that I might even: a) up my donation, and b) tell a friend about ‘my’ organization. The folks at CPAWS deserve a raise!
