    • 73. Benchmarking - What is it?
      • Now, for the very first time, you can get dynamic reports that let you compare your fundraising activities and results to other nonprofit organizations! You can even filter the data to match your results to organizations that are similar to you in type, size and location. 
      • Benchmark Reporting module is designed to gather aggregate statistics from a large number of participating eTapestry/FEP customer databases. The data is then displayed side-by-side with the same statistics from your own database, giving you a comparison between your organization and other nonprofits.
      • Having access to this data will allow you to see where your strengths and weaknesses lie in comparison to similar groups. This valuable data supports growth-oriented strategic planning and budgeting for your fundraising programs, enabling you to raise more money!
    • 74. We are losing current donors, not focusing enough of our development time on lapsed donors, and spending more money to acquire donors
      • Benchmark Giving Dynamics, Status, Trends, Comparisons
    • 75. Donor Loyalty
      • Your ability to fund your mission is dependent on the generosity of donors. However, the loyalty of donors is what allows you to sustain, plan, and expand your mission. Do you know if your donors are “loyal” to your organization?
      • Can provide a scientific measurement of individual donor loyalty, which provides accurate insight into future donor behavior.
