Unsuccessful #GivingTuesday? 3 Reasons Why You May Not Have Hit Your Goals

Here are 3 reasons why your GivingTuesday may not have gone well: 1) You didn’t have an engaged community ready to go BEFORE GivingTuesday. Nonprofits raised nearly $2 billion on GivingTuesday in 2019. And yet, we hear a lot of complaints every year about how it doesn’t work.

There Are Only Three Ways to Raise More Money

iMarketSmart

Actually, when you first started reading this blog post, you may have thought that acquisition was the only way to raise more money. It may seem on the surface that in order to raise more money we need to increase our network of potential donors/customers, but fundraising through acquisition is actually incredibly expensive and inefficient. Monetization ties in with donor lifetime value, a fundraising metric you may have seen floating around the internet.

May the Fundraising Force Be With You

The Agitator

May this fundraising force be with you. Among the many skills attributed to Steve Jobs was his ability to create a “reality distortion field”—a mental force he created to persuade himself and others to believe almost anything. Colleagues from early days note it was this skill that enabled Jobs and his team to develop the original Macintosh computer and deliver the software in the unheard-of period of just 10 months.

The Next Best Thing May Already Be Here

Ann Green

But sometimes we need to take a step back, and realize the next best thing may already be here. The next best thing may already be here. All nonprofits want to succeed and grow. You want more donors and more people to find out about your organization. You hear a lot about innovation and finding the next best thing to accomplish what you want. Give donors the personal touch. We have so many different ways to communicate with donors, many of them electronic.

You May Love Your Jargon, But Your Donor’s Don’t

Ann Green

Your donors don’t love it as much as you do because it’s boring and they may not understand what you’re trying to say. You may use some of these terms internally and they might be in your mission statement, but try to limit them when you communicate with your donors. Nonprofit organizations love their jargon, don’t they? But guess what? I think people use jargon because it’s an insider language and it makes them feel like they’re “in the know” in their professional community.
