Fundraising Tip – Year-end Fundraising is happening now

If you haven’t started your year-end fundraising, start now.

I last wrote about year-end fundraising in July.

It’s already the end of October.

Before you know it, we’ll be making calls for Thanks for Giving Day.

Then the days just fly by until December 31st.

I know you’re swamped.

Take five minutes today to start planning out your year-end fundraising. You can begin by simply creating an action plan from now until the first week of January.

If you typically send a direct mail piece, start writing it, and check in with your printer to reserve a spot.

Meet with your program teams to think about what stories you might want to tell to donors for all things year-end. That includes e-appeals and phone calls.

What do you want to talk about?

None of this has to take a lot of time. But it does take time, so calendar it.

If you’re feeling stuck feel free to reach out.
