Recently I was asked to contribute to 13 Expert Ideas on Using Technology to Improve Fundraising. The post is filled with solid, practical tips you can put to use right away. So when Adam Bluemner told me about a new survey for fundraising professionals asking about what technology has worked for them and what hasn’t, I was excited to share! Check out Adam’s post about this exciting new survey.
“What works and what doesn’t?” Whatever you’re looking to improve, isn’t that the fundamental question?
Well, that question is finally being asked specifically about fundraising technology. The “2014 Fundraising Technology Trends Survey” has just launched!
We want to hear which technologies you’ve adopted and how they’re affecting your ability to successfully connect with donors and secure contributions.
The study collects critical data for fundraisers on the adoption rates and effectiveness of traditional tools like donor management systems and CRM software, as well as emerging tech like Bitcoin adoption and web chat integration. By collecting benchmark numbers on which web communication channels are most effective, we’re looking to help fundraisers make data-driven decisions on where they should spend time and energy to inspire the most contributions.
Also, in order to encourage as many survey takers as possible to share their insights, we’re pledging $1 per survey response to a charity you’ll be able to select after taking the survey.
