Many nonprofits looking to fundraise typically use one of two approaches:
1) The Great Cause Approach: they believe donors will find them and give because “we’re such a great cause.”
2) The Scorched-Earth Approach: they believe they need to “get as much money as possible, from as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.”
While either approach above can provide some positive short-term results, neither allows for sustainable success. The first approach severely limits the amount of money an organization can raise. The second is one of the main reasons the nonprofit world has only a 45% retention rate for donors, and a 48% retention rate for gifts year-over-year. **
Both approaches lack one important element, strategy. Successful nonprofit fundraising requires a strategic plan and execution, just like any business development plan in a for profit organization.
