As we leave an old decade behind and start a new one, there are some great fundraising insights we created for you last year that will continue to stay relevant as we kick off 2020. Here are the top 3 favourite insights from 2019 that we believe will continue to help fundraisers into the new decade.
1. It’s all about data data data
Data is the lifeblood of any organisation, so the importance of good, clean supporter data cannot be overemphasized. Having a 360-degree view of your supporters and harnessing the power of data can grow your fundraising efforts.
In this insightful paper How Good Data Builds Great Organisations
, Gregory Dallas, Blackbaud’s CRM Practice Manager, reinforces the benefits of managing your data well, the best way to grow your data maturity, and increasing your impact through effective data management.
It’s important that you continue to keep your CRM up to date with relevant and current data, especially when using multiple systems. Our State of Integration Report
provides thoughtful insights into how to integrate these systems into one source of truth, coupled with the benefits associated with doing this.
2. The power of our partner ecosystems
The saying that ‘two heads are better than one’ rings true in many cases. At Blackbaud we really embrace the power of partnerships and have built a solid Ecosystem of Good™ that may be leveraged across the nonprofit sector. It's rewarding to see how these partnerships have generated impactful, functional and creative solutions.
