The donor/prospect database sits at the heart of every nonprofit’s development operations. How you use it (or don’t!) directly impacts your daily work and, quite often, your overall fundraising success. Unfortunately, many of us find our database lacking. The good news is that the problem isn’t usually the software itself. The culprits are usually inefficient business practices and disorganized data – both especially common in the nonprofit sector. These are problems that can be solved! And it’s not rocket science, but you do need a plan. Luckily, we have one for you. The first step in getting more from any software is committing to the initial effort to improve it. Are you ready? Great! Where do you start? In this session, we’ll present a practical, actionable ten-step plan that will help you streamline your fundraising system and operations so they’ll more easily and accurately support your strategies.
