Donor Acquisition

A lot of time and energy is being spent on “what to do” with “the Millennials.” There are seminars, articles, and blogs each addressing this group of people as though they were some kind of aberration. They actually remind me of me! I’m a “child of the 60s” one of those long-haired, lazy hippie-types who were bringing America down. But the strange thing is, I was never a hippie, never had really long hair (I think Jimmy Carter’s hair was actually longer than mine), and I had three jobs just to get through high school. I didn’t have time to do anything with America except work, vote, and pay taxes!

It’s June already! Good grief! The year’s almost half over!!! For fundraisers you know what this means? It’s time to get ready for your all-important Fall Campaign. I’m sure you know that many, if not most nonprofit organizations receive 50-60% of their annual income during Q4.

If it’s been a while since Sally A. Sample sent you a financial gift, don’t assume she’s forgotten about you altogether.

Sally is what you call a lapsed donor, and the potentially quieter summer months ahead of us might be a good time to start figuring out how to get those lapsed donors back. Generally speaking, lapsed donors haven’t made a financial gift of any kind in more than 12 months.

I immediately clicked the “Donate” button and made a gift. Within minutes I had a receipt in my inbox and then . . .
