Unleash the Power of Your Data to Drive Your Fundraising Results
Wednesday, December 13, 2023 at 1:00 pm ET | 6:00 pm GMT
Managing a team of fundraisers, expanding their reach, finding new donors, and increasing contributions is challenging. More so now than ever before, the job is tough!
Advancement leaders are swimming against a strong current. Blackbaud research shows that 53% of assigned prospects are not getting visited and 67% of best prospects may not even be assigned at all. On top of that, on average, a gift officer stays less than three years at a job before moving on. Taken together, these factors chip away at your ability to easily hit campaign goals.
Blackbaud Fundraiser Performance Management™ is designed to make it easier and more predictable to manage fundraisers and use data to hit fundraising goals. Join us for this 60-minute session to learn how Blackbaud Fundraiser Performance Management can help you:
- Identify the right teachable moments to drive gift officer “productivity” as opposed to gift officer “activity”
- Broaden segmentation beyond donor status to increase renewal, retention, and acquisition for annual giving teams
- Provide front-line fundraisers powerful tools to enable them to make informed decisions and be nimble in execution
- Set the stage for your next campaign
