Building capacity within a nonprofit allows the organization to increase their overall fundraising and sustain that increased level of fundraising. When considering how to build fundraising capacity, four major questions need to be answered:  

  • What investments should be made?
  • How much will those investments cost?
  • What order should the investments be made in?
  • What is the total financial opportunity for the organization if those investments are made?

A fixed-fee digital capacity building project focuses these questions on online fundraising and digital communication channels and reveals the greatest opportunities for an organization in the digital space. This space can be defined broadly or narrowly depending on the needs and focus of the organization.  

Sustainers, also referred to as recurring or monthly donors, can provide a stable foundation of support for an organization looking to grow its fundraising base. These programs have grown in popularity over the last decade and sustainers are making up a larger share of nonprofit individual fundraising than ever before.

However, many organizations are losing out on the opportunity to raise even more money from this committed segment of donors by not asking those donors to increase their gift each year.

Charity Dynamics is making it easier to ask your sustainer donors to upgrade with a tested email engagement campaign strategy paired with a simple upgraded user experience that takes advantage of the functionality available through your constituent database.

Inbox placement and email deliverability are closely related concepts that help describe the rate at which emails are delivered to their intended recipients and whether those emails end up in the intended inbox or are filtered into a SPAM folder. Many factors can affect these two metrics such as content and design, segmentation and data quality, and email platforms.

Charity Dynamics retains strong awareness of email deliverability and inbox placement best practices and employs those best practices in support of major fundraising initiatives for organizations year-round. When key performance metrics indicate a possible issue with email deliverability and inbox placement, Charity Dynamics uses its expertise to diagnose and address the problem.

The inbox placement & email deliverability project offers nonprofits a way to better understand current inbox placement and deliverability performance, and identify areas for improvement & optimization.
