Fundraising Benchmarks, Donor Data, and You: A Q&A with Heather Yandow

first_imgWhat are common challenges orgs face when trying to access the data they need and how can they overcome these challenges?HY: The most common challenge is that organizations don’t have a database that they know and love. For some, it’s hard to get data out of their system. For others, they don’t trust the data they do access.Here are four tips to help you start gathering this data:Take a look at this year’s survey questions. Print them out and identify what data you can easily find (like last year’s total income) and what might take a little more time to figure out (like retention rate). I’m a big fan of Heather Yandow from Third Space Studio. Heather produces a labor of love for small and mighty nonprofits: The Individual Donor Benchmark Report (IDBR). The IDBR highlights fundraising data trends for nonprofit organizations with annual budgets under $2 million. If you’d like to share your organization’s data for the next IDBR,  please visit Heather’s website for more info.Keep reading this post to discover why the IDBR’s data is so valuable and to collect a few nuggets of wisdom from Heather about donor data.What is the IDBR and why should organizations care about the findings?Heather Yandow (HY): The Individual Donor Benchmark Report digs into the fundraising data of small and mighty nonprofits, those with annual budgets under $2 million.It’s a best practice that nonprofits need to set goals, track outcomes, and learn from past performance. But collecting and analyzing data in a vacuum only gives part of the picture. Organizations also need to the ability to measure the impact of their fundraising and compare it other organizations like theirs, as well as to the larger sector. That’s why we created the Individual Donor Benchmark Project.There is no other benchmarking resource for smaller organizations with individual donor fundraising programs.  Simply put, the IDBR is a resource for nonprofits to see how they stack up. It helps answer questions like:Where is our fundraising doing well?What parts of our fundraising program might need a little more attention?What experiments could we try to improve our fundraising program? If you run into problems, know that you can skip a question or two on the survey. I know that sometimes a number just isn’t easily available, so you can just leave that question blank.From Network for Good: Don’t have a user-friendly donor database that can help you store, access, and analyze your donor data? Network for Good’s new donor management system is everything you need and nothing you don’t. Check it out now! Last year’s big finding was about how much more money organizations raised when they had a fundraising plan. Are you looking into that again this year or are you trying to determine new/different factors that contribute to fundraising success/misses?HY: Both! We are definitely digging in to our finding that a fundraising plan is the secret to individual donor success. To start, we want to get a better understanding of what a typical fundraising plan looks like. Does it include an annual development calendar? An analysis of the previous year? We’re hoping that getting more specific information will help identify the critical parts of the fundraising plan.At the same time, we will also be looking into other factors that may contribute to fundraising success, like Board participation in fundraising or the number of meetings organizations hold with donors and potential donors.If organizations want to participate in your research, what’s in it for them and how can they sign up?It’s easy to be part of the survey! Just visit http://www.thirdspacestudio.com/idbproject/ to learn more and start the survey.As a thank you for being part of the survey, you will receive:a results reports as well as the complete survey results to share with your colleagues and Boardan invitation to a special webinar just for survey participants to dig into the resultsa copy of official Individual Donor Benchmark Report and Infographica chance to win one of 50 coveted consultations with Ravela Insights, experts in donor data analytics, database strategy, and prospect identificationa chance to win one of five Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training prize packs with a subscription to the Grassroots Fundraising Journal as well as a book from the Kim Klein Fundraising Series Consider all the many ways that you might get the data you need. Your database may produce a perfect report – but it might not! You may need to take a closer look at your data by putting it into Excel. Or, you might need to look at the report from your online payment processor to find information about online gifts and monthly donations. What data do you need to have in order to participate in the research?HY: We’ve tried to streamline the data organizations need to participate to only the most critical metrics. To participate, you’ll need to report numbers like:Organizational revenue and expensesTotal amount of individual donor revenue and number of donorsAmount raised online and number of online donorsYou can preview of the full set of questions on this site .We’ve also decided that none of the questions are required. So, if you are unable to answer a question or two (or five), that’s okay! Set aside one hour to dig into your data. You’d be surprised how much you can accomplish with one focused hour! And you might just get on a roll and keep going. Now, for something fun. On a scale from 1-10, how much do you love data?HY: I’m probably an eight. I do love data and spend a good bit of my time collecting data, training about data, and helping organization harness the power of data. But to be a ten, I think I’d have to be this guy. I’m not there yet!last_img read more

Facebooks VR dream may not take off Oculus cofounder

first_imgSan Francisco: Facebook-acquired Virtual Reality (VR) firm Oculus may not be profitable as the social networking giant is struggling to bring VR to the mainstream consumer market, says Jack McCauley, one of the co-founders of Oculus. According to a report in CNBC late Sunday, with Facebook positioning its VR-based Oculus devices primarily as gaming machines, McCauley does not believe there is much of a market for the device. “There are a lot of fundamental issues that remain unsolved with VR gaming,” said the Oculus Co-founder who stayed through Facebook’s $2 billion acquisition of the company in March 2014. Also Read – Spotify rolls out Siri support, new Apple TV app McCauley mentioned how people still get nauseated when they put on a VR headset and how they still prefer to play video games alongside their friends on a 2D display. Facebook announced VR headset called “Oculus Go” at a starting price of $199 in October 2017. The $199 Oculus Go has sold a little more than 2 million units, according to market research firm SuperData. The “Oculus Quest”, which was made available in May this year, has sold nearly 1.1 million units while the Oculus Rift has sold 547,000 units, said the report.

Morocco to Appeal CAF Sanctions in the Court of Arbitration for…

Rabat – Morocco has decided to appeal the decision of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to suspend the national football team from participating in the 2017 and 2019 African Cup of Nations in the court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland.CAF’s Executive Committee decided last week to expel Morocco from participating in continental tournaments for the next four years. Morocco was also fined $1 million and will have to pay an additional $9 million in compensation following its decision to postpone the 2015 Afcon over fears of the Ebola virus.According to governmental sources quoted by several local media outlets, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) will file the appeal to the sport’s highest court after consultation with a law firm. Head of Government Abdelilah Benkirane said on Thursday in Rabat that Morocco will not accept the “unfair” sanctions placed upon it by the governing body of African football and “will spare no effort to defend its rights.”“Morocco will not succumb to injustice,” Benkirane was reported as saying by the Government Spokesperson, Mustapha El Khalfi, who spoke to the press following the weekly cabinet meeting.The Moroccan Royal Football Federation said in a statement that it was “totally stunned” by the decisions taken by CAF’s Executive Committee.“The FRMF is “committed to taking all the necessary steps and measures to uphold the rights and interests of Moroccan football,” the statement added. read more

Thousands of Germans Rally Against anti-Islam Movement

Taroudante – On Monday, thousands of people participated in a rally against the anti-Islam group LEGIDA in the East German city of Leipzig, forming a “chain of lights” that measured kilometers in length.The protesters faced a rally organized by LEGIDA, a local chapter of the xenophobic group PEGIDA, the “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident”.In the wake of the tensions caused by mass sexual assaults and robberies that took place in Germany on New Year’s Eve, the anti-Islam group rallied in the eastern German city of Leipzig, venting its anger at Chancellor Angela Merkel.Anti-Islam protesters held signs that read “Rapefugees not welcome – Stay away!” and “Integrate barbarity?” while chanting, “We are the people”, “Resistance!”, and “Deport them!” The right-wing group accused Merkel of destroying their homeland by allowing in 1.1 million asylum seekers last year.A broad coalition of trade unions, commerce, culture, and associations as well as some German parties called for the rally against the xenophobic local movement LEGIDA.Meanwhile, a pro-tolerance group held signs that read “refugees welcome” and “kein mensch ist illegal!” (“No person is illegal”).The Chinese Xinhua News Agency reported that “about 2900 people took part in the rally,” holding candles and forming a line that extended kilometers in length.The police were on site to avoid any clash between the two opposing groups. Videos on social media showed numerous arrests being made.One video posted by a protestor showed a video of a neo-nazi heavily vandalizing a Kebab shop, saying that the scene looked “like a drone has struck.” “Police said some 250 far-right hooligans had thrown rocks and smashed shop windows in a traditionally left-wing student district of the city, before police dispersed them,” according to a local. read more

The Latest: Alaska governor proposes constitutional changes

JUNEAU, Alaska — The Latest on proposed amendments to Alaska’s constitution (all times local):12:50 p.m.Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy is proposing changes to the state constitution that he says would help create a durable state fiscal plan.One of the proposed amendments is aimed at ensuring the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend is not changed without a vote of the people. The dividend is the annual check residents receive from the state’s oil-wealth fund.Another proposed amendment seeks to set what Dunleavy called a “spending and savings rule,” with limits on spending and leftover revenue targeted toward savings.The third would call for a vote of the people to create or increase taxes. Dunleavy says the tax proposal applies to any tax.Each proposed constitutional amendment would need two-thirds support of each the House and Senate to qualify for the ballot.___8:55 a.m.Gov.

As hunger looms UN food agency seeks urgent new aid for Zimbabwe

“It’s tragic that these ration cuts have come at a time when people are normally celebrating the festive season, but if we’re not given food or cash by donors, then we’re simply unable to meet their food needs,” Mike Sackett, WFP Regional Director for Southern Africa, said in a news release in Johannesburg, South Africa.The agency warned that prospects for the first quarter of 2004 look even worse. “We urgently need new cash contributions to avoid a further reduction in rations which would have devastating consequences,” Mr. Sackett said.In July, the agency appealed for $311 million to feed 6.5 million people in southern Africa through next June, but to date donors have come forward with less than half, leaving a $161.3 million shortfall. Two thirds of the overall amount is needed for Zimbabwe, where more than 4 million people will need WFP assistance by early next year. The country’s lean season starts in January when granaries tend to be empty and people enduring food shortages are most reliant on outside aid. “Without sufficient food, people won’t have enough energy to cultivate crops for the year’s first harvest, which is vital for stabilizing a household’s food needs,” Mr. Sackett said.Few people still have income or savings to buy staple foods, which have jumped in price by nearly 50 per cent in the last few weeks. Compounding this, water and sewerage systems are nearing collapse, heightening the likelihood of cholera, dysentery and diarrhoea outbreaks, which could significantly affect a weakened population’s ability to assimilate what little food they have. It is thought that well over half of Zimbabwe’s urban population live below the poverty line.Compounding the shortages is the spread of HIV/AIDS. Zimbabwe has an adult prevalence rate of 33 per cent, while some 23 per cent of the country’s farm labourers are estimated to have either already died or are too sick to work. As a result, yields have declined by 59 per cent and produce reaching the market has dropped by 66 per cent. read more

UN health agency scaling up response to Sierra Leone cholera outbreak

In a press statement, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that the total number of reported cases had reached 18,508, including 271 deaths, since the beginning of 2012, with the highest cluster of infections occurring in the western area of the country where the capital, Freetown, is located. WHO and its partners are working in close coordination with the Government to step up their response to the outbreak and support field-level activities such as case management; communication and social mobilization; water, sanitation and hygiene promotion; and surveillance and data management. It also noted that particular emphasis was being placed on the early detection of cases and the timely provision of treatment at district level to reduce deaths. Cholera is an acute intestinal infection caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with the bacterium known as vibrio cholerae. The disease has a short incubation period and produces a toxin that causes continuous watery diarrhoea, a condition that can quickly lead to severe dehydration and death if treatment is not administered promptly. Vomiting also occurs in most patients.In its statement, WHO added that it did not recommend that any travel or trade restrictions be applied to the Sierra Leone due to the outbreak. read more

Beast from the Easts legacy will be roads covered in potholes for

first_imgBeast from the East Traffic accidents were reported across Merseyside and Greater Manchester during the morning, and some schools in the worst hit areas were forced to close for the day.Many complained that they thought spring would never come after the wintry weather returned, and some said the snow was “even worse than last week.” Credit:Jeff J Mitchell/Getty  Beast from the East Credit: Matt Cardy/Getty The Beast from the East has left behind a legacy of potholes on UK roads, the RAC has warned.Figures relating to pothole breakdowns have doubled following last week’s widespread snow and ice, according to the RAC.Water froze in road cracks when the Beast from the East struck causing surfaces to crumble causing fresh potholes to appear.RAC spokesman Simon Williams said: “While the snow caused serious short-term travel disruption, motorists will sadly be suffering its consequences for months and possibly years to come.”Our roads were already in a poor state of repair before the extreme cold weather hit.”Siberian weather was the last thing they needed as the freezing conditions wreak havoc with any road surface in bad repair. But roads have continued to be battered once again this week as the the Pest from the West wreaked havoc on Britain’s roads on Thursday morning.Yesterday heavy snowfall caused significant disruptions in West Yorkshire after the Met Office warned the worst-hit areas could see four inches of snow. There were several reports of snow-related bus accidents both in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, where a bus skidded on ice and hit a wall and a bus crash on Churwell Hill in South Leeds.Police in the area, which was particularly badly hit, warned motorists not to travel unless it was absolutely necessary after dealing with a spate of road accidents. Credit:Leon Neal/Gettycenter_img “We fear this spring may see the emergence of almost as many potholes as daffodils.”The RAC received an average of 218 call outs for pothole related issues, including damaged shock absorbers, broken suspension springs and distorted wheels, between Sunday and Tuesday. This is compared with 104 from February 1 to March 3.According to the Local Government Association councils are currently fixing a pothole every 19 seconds despite funding pressures.AA president Edmund King added that the figures represented the “tragic toll” English weather had taken on UK roads.. Beast from the East UK government ministers have announced a review into how water firms handled last week’s bad weather. Jason Stanley, a bus driver from Leeds took to Facebook to apologise for not being able to carry out his bus route: “Sorry to the good patient folks of Leeds I’ve tried my best but got stuck after 2 hours of trying, and thanks to the gent that brought myself and the other driver a hot coffee.”A yellow ice warning was in place for parts of the UK, Northern Ireland and a swathe of Scotland until 9am, with forecasters advising slippery patches are likely to form on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.The south of the UK enjoyed spells with occasional rain, however, as households in London and parts of the South West finally have access to running water after days without due to pipe damage after the cold snap.Water companies said they have restored supplies to most customers after days of weather-related problems, which left thousands of homes in southern England without their supply. A Department for Transport spokesperson said: “We know road surfaces are a concern for all road users and that is why we are providing local highway authorities in England, with just under £6 billion to help improve the condition of our local highway networks.”We are also giving local authorities a record £296 million through the pothole action fund – that’s enough to fix just under 6 million potholes. This includes an additional £46 million as announced in December last year, to help councils repair potholes that may have formed over this winter season.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
