The recipients were sent to an epetition directed at key Parliamentarians who were on the Committee that reviewed the bill.Note some important aspects to the petition:#1 phone number – we asked. Does this suppress signatures? That’s a debate. We make it a non-mandatory field – and find that about 30% fill it out anyway. It’s worth it#2 counter - why? “social proof”. participants see that 1000s are doing this#3 comments – these are streamed – they build momentum and act as examples – they give participants the confidence to write their own words#4 subscribe – this builds a list for e-cultivation – you can’t use your big list all the time – this filters out the best activists for higher touch cultivation#5 more info – a minor link so as not to distract, but important for legitimacy to show the depth of research/legitimacy of actionother – use of photo, clear action statement, target is obvious, message is clear, opportunity to add personal comments, required fields clearly indicated, link to more comments to increase comfort level of participants3 weeks later, on November 1st, there were 2792 signatureshttp://www.amnesty.ca/urgentappeal/2009/CorpAcct/
Of all petition-signers, we discovered there were four main segments within the data: -people who only signed the petition, which made up the bulk of the list-people who had also received an on-line newsletter, -those who were once a single-gift donor, and -lapsed monthly donors. Not surprisingly, the lapsed monthly donors had the highest response rate at 18.5 % followed by deep lapsed donors at 11%. Petition signers responded at 7.6% and the people who had also received an e-newsletter had a 9% monthly donor rate.

To review, Michael described the five most impactful areas that a CRM can assist with. Proper identification of supporters, multi channel marketing efforts, offering easy ways for those supporters to become part of your organization, (Acquisition), Addressing the needs of supporters so they return, (Cultivation), and measure your effectiveness (Evaluate).
I know this is a basic diagram and defiantly doesn't have enough words on it, so let me streamline this information. I am a fan of reading the Harvard Business Review and I happened to run across an article that really stuck out to me. It was called Branding in The Digital Age, David C. Edelman, 10/2010. This article referenced a study called the Consumer Decision Journey, It looked rather simple but was quite similar to what we all do on the phone here. The Consumer being the Supporter. The article discussed studying 20,000 consumers purchase trends. The points that most related to the fundraising world were that the decision points of a supporter have changed and now meeting them on their level at each point on the life cycle is extremely important. Retention is highlighted in red because its more effective to retain supporters and supporters expect to stay engaged through various types of media, most recently social media.Was recently viewed a seminar that had an old friend of mine Shad Ali, and some of the statistics presented made me realize how much opportunity there is for Canadian non profits in this donor life cycle. The data was based on a study done by Ipsos Reid and AFP. - 7 out of 10 Canadianshave made a financial donation in the last 12 months. - Preferred contact frequency is 1 time or less per year, means that identifying the message and the marketing touch is extremely important - 60% research your company prior to donations for an offline donation, Acquisition and cultivation points are the face of your organization and online is the primary starting point. - Canadians were most interested in understanding the positive impact, over being thanked. As a cultivation point, ensuring that you are describing clearly how that donation impacts is extremely important. - Giving is shifting from larger onetime gifts over $1,000 to more recurring gifts in a lower amount, means measuring your success will help you understand how to focus back to the Identification pillar.
Describe why and tee up examples.A 360 degree view of the donor relationship and all activity improves understanding and enables excellent stewardshipAdd new donors to the prospect pool through improved integration with online and offline channels and by capturing program participantsExecute strategies informed by donor behavior to deliver the right message at the right time to the right personAmplify major, planned, and corporate alliances with research and moves management tools in the same solution
Improve insight to into donor behaviors through research, we do this in a few ways. There are reports within the system to help you segment your targets and as we discussed before there is a built in service to the package that helps build a relationship path for that person.It will help you identify those major givers and planned giversAnd as you add data to the system you then can update the information to ensure you have the latest information, April of 2012, you can run it over and over….big event run the sore.
AE/USSWhen looking at the results of the analytics, Blackbaud will categorize them in 4 buckets. You can see some of the benefits written there on the left, but I always like to see this in action. For further explanation around this topic, I am going to pass this along to my colleague.
Dashboards have brand new panels just for Giving ScoreThis panel gives you a breakdown of you Giving Score run. You can configure it to show which run you would like to see. It defaults to the last time the database was run.This panel shows you all your Giving Score Queries. You can access them and even add new queries right from here.This panel lets you breakdown your scored database by constituency. The example shows how all the Board Members are scored in the system. This panel too can be configured to accommodate any constituency the user wishes.
Within this list you can… Add/Remove single or groups of constituents to the listFilter the list using a specialized query UIChange a constituent's Giving ScoreAssign a constituent a solicitor Access each constituent’s Giving HistoryRun a constituent through WeathPoint or View their WealthPoint dataView/manage each constituent’s actionsView/manage each constituent’s notesOpen a constituent’s full record …without ever having to leave the listWhat you are looking at is a new pattern affectionately called the “list view” . The essence of it is: a list of individuals you can add and remove from at will. You can save it, name it, print it, export it and use it anywhere a query can be used in RE7 (e.g. reports, global changes, mailings, export, etc…)This feature makes the Giving Score unique to the standard “list view” pattern (which we’ll see a little later). This is a special set of filters that can applied to the list. We will preload some filters we think Major Gift Officers may like to start with such as Total Giving and Constituency Code. They will have the ability to Edit the parameters of the filter using the Edit link and if they need to Add or Remove filters themselves, they can click the respective button available to the right.Add to List allows the user to add either a single constituent to the list or a group of constituents to the list (based on a query). Remove from list does the exact same thing except removes from the list. Note: Lists automatically suppress duplicates, so no person can be added more than once to a list.4/5. These two areas work in tandem with each other. (4) This area is the lists of constituents that are in this Giving Score query. As you click on each row, you get a summary of information in the panel to the right (5). 6. Shows recent notes7. Shows recent actions8. Shows giving history
AEDon’t Forget Social, communicate based on their preference increased likely hood of engagement and response.
AEFor the past five years, Target Analytics has organized and led donorCentrics benchmarking groups for large nonprofit organizationswith a particular focus on online giving and how online donors are integrated into a traditional direct marketing program.The results show that although direct mail remains the dominant channel for new donor acquisitions, it has become increasingly common fornew donors to give their first gift online.There are all kinds of research around the donors online, like they are younger, their house hold incomes are higher, in aggregate they have much higher cumulative value over the long term than traditional mail-acquired. But the most striking to me was, that in a multi channel format, those acquired online but also give offline Donors over a 4 year period give more. This speaks to the importance of on and offline efforts.If you are interested in viewing that study, please take my email address down at the end of the presentation and I am happy to forward you along the link.I am not going to pass it to my colleague Jay to explain more in detail.Source: 2011 donorCentrics Internet and Multichannel Giving Benchmarking Report
Let me show you some examples
USSDescribe why and tee up examples.Making it easy for the supporter to engage, learn more about you, without pulling out their credit card, understand more about your impact before donating, ways you can accomplish this are:
USSIndicate that it moves beyond just donations online, we offer all types of events.
Themes:Don’t be afraid to ask.Leverage all of the info you have in your database.Ask what that person is comfortable with
Explain email example of cultivationAlso mention that Direct mail, describing what you are doing with your gift is important. Publish that information clearly on their website.
Explain how to leverage these benchmark results to better understand how to cultivate.

#4 – CULTIVATION • You grow your program by taking good care, cross channel, of your new and renewed donors • The donor „lifecycle‟ helps craft the approach...9/20/2012 54
LIFECYCLE BASICS FOR ‘POLITICAL’ SUCCESS • Shared agreement between fundraising and non-fundraising departments on the „big picture‟ lifecycle plan e.g. how are non-fundraising and fundraising ACTIONS coordinated to give a deeper relationship to the organization triggering a closer and more generous view from the supporter • Shared agreement between all types of giving (e.g. planned giving, major gift, middle donor, monthly giving, etc) on when individuals are approached to be converted to the next level of giving. In other words, when is a new gift giving opportunity triggered? • Shared agreement on what happens on first entry; graduation and lifetime events (e.g. birth of children, first job, grandchildren, death of alumni friends, etc) • Shared agreement on what information will be gathered, and how it will be gathered e.g. the Drip Marketing approach • Shared agreement on how that information will be used and when e.g. birthdates, likes and dislikes, favourite memories, most important instructor at school, etc •9/20/2012 55
LIFECYCLE SKELETON • The first category should be life event. It can include those important events e.g. acceptance, graduation, birth of child, marriage, retirement, death, etc • The second category should be non-fundraising communication. It can include alumni relations or patient (family) communication touch points • The third category should be fundraising solicitation. It should include every type of giving e.g. text, monthly sustainer, planned giving, etc • The fourth category should be channel choices for each of the proactive interactions for a constituent • The fifth category would be one labelled cooperation. It would explicitly talk about the necessary cooperation to make an interaction successful • The sixth category would be one labelled outcome. It would explicitly talk about the outcome that the interaction should inspire9/20/2012 56
