An annual Resource Development strategy is a foundational component to success in fundraising, and long-term sustainability. The right elements for an RD Strategy helps your nonprofit focus on doing the right things to maximize your fundraising success. Recognizing your organizations starting point, plugging in a few simple elements, and creating a data-informed feedback loop can change the trajectory of your fundraising efforts regardless of the size or scope of your existing efforts.
In this discussion, we walked through three simple stages in a Resource Development Strategy and discussed some of the basic data points that can help you determine what’s working and what’s not. Thank you so much to Brian Abernathy of Convergent Nonprofit Solutions for leading us through this informative discussion!
