Fundraising Trends...What worked over the last few years and what you can expect for 2013 and beyond!
The close of the calendar year and the upcoming holidays is always a good time to look back and evaluate what worked really well in our fundraising programs...as well as those areas that remain challenging. Were our boards more engaged? Did we diversity our donor base? Did special events attract new donors? Has social media translated into awareness and then givers or are we still searching for new ways to make this work? Is it easier or harder to find and retain good fundraising talent? Have world events, and the globalization of fundraising made it more attractive and successful to do international fundraising? We shall cover all these topics and give insights and predictions into what we can expect, 2012 and beyond.
