7 ways to raise a lot more money this year

We’re well into the year, but it’s not too late to adopt some great practices, like these 7 New Year’s Resolutions for Fundraisers from the Bloomerang Blog:

  1. Resolve to learn more about your donors.
  2. Resolve to learn from your data.
  3. Resolve to make your donors FEEL something. (That’s what moves them to give!)
  4. Set a revenue goal (and a cultivation plan) for every donor in your portfolio.
  5. Resolve to dedicate 30 minutes a day to call and personally thank donors.
  6. Follow the RIGHT approach. (Connect with donors in the ways that work — not in the ways you want to them work!)
  7. Love what you do!

It’s not about any technology, medium, or technique. It’s about donors. If you need to raise funds from donors, you need to study them, respect them, and build everything you do around them. And the future? It’s already here. More.
