Fundraising is the instant answer from any director of a nonprofit who’s asked about the hardest part of their job. Your mission is to support a great cause and generate social change, and money is the only way to make that possible. Keeping a nonprofit funded is a never-ending challenge.
Our partner, DonorPath, is an organization that matches nonprofits with experts to support their fundraising efforts. Think of it as getting a fundraising consultant that can help you with strategies, tactics, tracking and campaigns. DonorPath’s experts have a minimum of 10 years experience and have worked for at least three nonprofits in a professional capacity.
Getting started is easy – just visit DonorPath.org, create a profile and select from a list of matching experts to begin building your virtual fundraising team.
The first 30 days with DonorPath is free. During that time, you’ll connect with a fundraising expert and gain access to two important products that they offer:
- An analytics tool that helps look at your organization’s existing data, identify trends and make recommendations. (It syncs with your existing fundraising software.)
- A library of DonorPath guides, templates and checklists to help manage fundraising. This covers more than just raising money online.
If you decide to continue your DonorPath subscription, the cost is $239 a month for a variety of support services including solution sessions, direct communications with your expert, and building a 12-month fundraising road map. Ongoing reporting and customer service are part of it too.
“We’ve helped nonprofits increase fundraising results by as much as 61% over 12 months when they fully leverage the coaching, tools and insights in a DonorPath subscription,” says CEO and Founder Brian Lauterbach, who’s also a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE).
“We created a technology and a community that allows small and mid-sized nonprofits access to best practices and ongoing coaching in raising money. Traditionally, only the upper 25 percent of the 1.8 million nonprofits in the United States have the budget to afford these things.”
