Summer 2011 Nonprofit Fundraising Survey

2011-mid-year-survey.pngHow are your organization's development efforts going this year? How did your fundraising between January and June 2011 compare to the same period last year? Which techniques are working for you? Which aren't? What do you think holds the most promise for your organization's fundraising success?

You are invited to answer these and similar questions in the Nonprofit Research Collaborative's second fundraising survey for 2011 (GuideStar is a member of the Collaborative*). The survey looks at specific fundraising techniques and whether funds raised are up or down compared to last year. The list of techniques ranges from board giving to SMS/Texting. There are also a few questions about capital campaigns in this wave.

To participate in the survey, click the Take the Survey button below. The survey asks for your organization's Employer Identification Number (EIN), but that is not required. When you take the survey and submit your answers, you will get immediate access to a summary analysis of responses received to date. You can also provide your e-mail address to get a copy of the report that will come out shortly after Labor Day.

We will post the survey report on GuideStar in September. In the meantime, the results of the February 2011 survey are available for free download.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share what is happening in your corner of the nonprofit sector.
