Create unique personas to drive segmentation of your audience to send personalized, meaningful messages that will rise above the noise.

Many organizations have a one-size-fits-all approach to fundraising appeals. It’s time to start thinking beyond age and giving history. Consider segmenting around lifestyle factors, behavior and affinity to other causes in the community

Donors and prospects may have a lot in common but send them a generic message and your communication will be overlooked:

The following best practices will help you create personas that you can use in your donor and prospect marketing and solicitation segmentations.Read more

Many nonprofits have a one size fits all approach to fundraising appeals.  Or, if they segment their appeals, they base it on age, or giving history, or if they are very sophisticated, both.  I’m not saying that age and giving history aren’t important, of course they are.  But do all Millennials think alike?  Do all lapsed donors respond to the same appeal to “come back?”  Are all Boomers capable of giving multi-million dollar gifts?  No.  Donors and prospects are as individual as we are, and if you are going to be successful marketing your nonprofit mission to them, and help your nonprofit stand out from the crowd, you need to get creative.  The following steps will help you create personas that you can use in your donor and prospect marketing and solicitation segmentations. Read more

2014 will see a shift in focus for nonprofits as they respond to changing demographics in the giving population. Two trends will dominate: first, Boomers are retiring, and as they do so, planned giving opportunities will become much more prevalent. Boomers will also be more involved than ever in causes about which they are passionate, translating into increased volunteering. Nonprofits should be ready with meaningful opportunities that allow their Boomer supporters to apply their business skills and work experience. Secondly, Millennials are developing their unique profile as donors, and indications are strong that they will be civic-minded, creative, and very active in determining how their contributions are used. Nonprofits who want to engage Millennials will need to speak to them on many channels, including mobile, be willing to listen and respond to their ideas and feedback, and involve them as partners and insiders in finding solutions for social problems.Read more

As 2014 gets underway, predictions abound.  With full knowledge that “the best way to predict the future is to create it,” we offer the following ideas for nonprofits to ponder this year and beyond.  Trend One: With the Continued Growth of the Nonprofit Sector, Individual Donors Will Become More Important.  The nonprofit sector is growing in both size and influence, government cutbacks are negatively impacting nonprofit funding and corporate funding, while growing, is a mere 6% of total contributions. Nonprofits wishing to survive and thrive in this uncertain and unsustainable economic climate will have to rely heavily on individual donors.  Identifying, involving and integrating these individuals into partnerships to help solve our most pressing problems will be the challenge of 2014.  Nonprofits will need to understand their donors and supporters on a different level – go beyond wealth and beyond demographics – to dig deep into the psyche and motivations of their constituents.  Read more
