More Recurring Gifts from Digital Approaches

Every year, Blackbaud’s donorCentrics Sustainer Benchmarking group meets and evaluates information on recurring gifts. This year was no exception.

Face-to-face/door-to-door fundraising, also known as canvassing, came to a screeching halt during COVID-19. For organizations that picked those strategies back up again in late 2020, the good news is the number of sustainers is up and retention rates are also up.

Let’s take a look at the growth trend here. The image shows that 17% of all donors are giving recurring gifts in FY20, but they make up 25% of total revenue. This is from all channels for the 31 organizations in the study.

Fundraisers ask me this a lot: “What percentage of my donors can I expect to give monthly?” If you’re looking to find a goal to strive for, 17% of all donors giving monthly is a great one!

Of course, you’re not going to get there right away. Start with where you are now and go up from there. Take an inventory of where you are now and then see if you can double your goal and keep doubling it.

In comparison, the “M+R Benchmarks 2021” found that 19% of online giving comes from monthly donors.

The next question fundraisers often ask me: “What’s the best channel to use to generate new monthly donors?” The answer here is that digital is great, often very affordable and very doable. And you see from the graphic below that last year, digital was the leading source, especially during the pandemic.

Those organizations that really focused and stepped up their emails to invite monthly donors grew. Those organizations that added paid digital ads grew even more. See graph here.

But as you can see, that still leaves 29% coming from other sources. Direct mail is still very much alive. Direct mail, online and telemarketing combined are even more powerful.

It’s important to remember that this study is based upon 31 larger organizations. Some of the more expensive channels, like DRTV and canvassing, are simply not affordable for smaller and mid-size nonprofits yet.

So, start with those channels you have and the channels you can afford. Start with what you can control, and grow from there.

What if you stepped up your game a bit and added a sustainer invite email once a month instead of once a year? What if you stepped up your game a bit and organized a monthly donor drive four times a year instead of once?

What if you stepped up your game a bit and tried some Google ads focused on monthly gifts? What if you stepped up your game a bit and used some video in your emails and social media? What if you used some of your social media to direct donors to that monthly-only donation page?

You won’t know until you try, right?

National News
Measuring nonprofit employees' passion & performance In Jayne Agency’s ongoing content series about “The Unexpected Generation Gap in 501c3 Engagement,” we uncovered how the disconnect among generational groups- younger millennial staff, C-suite leaders and Boomer board members- prevents many nonprofits from achieving their mission and delivering on expectations of donors and beneficiaries.

Recording conversations in the workplace - do I have to put up with this? We recently met with an employee who has had a long history of not performing their job responsibilities as expected and of showing reluctance to accept our guidance to improve and meet expectations. At this meeting, we planned to give the employee a final written warning. Here's what happened next...

Generational differences in racial equity work For the past year, I have had a unique window into dozens of social justice nonprofits spread across this country (and beyond) that are all in the midst of a common social and economic inflection point. They have all been thrust into the virtual work world by COVID and rocked by a racial justice reckoning. And while I am not a trained researcher per se, I do have enough of a background as an investigative journalist to recognize the unusual opportunity for cross-organizational data collection and interpretation that this moment has presented. And what I have witnessed in hundreds of Zooms is a pattern of generational conflict manifesting in myriad ways:
