Do you know how much your organisation spends in order to raise €1? Do you know how much your peers spend? In order to measure and improve your organisation’s performance as well as make informed investment decisions, consider these 5 practical steps:
  1. Measure staff and non-staff fundraising costs by fundraising method and calculate the return on investment for each method each quarter. Engage both fundraising and finance staff to track revenue and expenses using the same approach.
  2. Calculate fundraising costs over a period of time to forecast results of each method and decide how to allocate fundraising resources most effectively.
  3. Develop targets for return on investment across all fundraising methods. Use benchmarking data to compare your results with those of your peers.
  4. Determine priorities for resource allocation based on your fundraising plan targets.
  5. Consider increasing your investment in fundraising. Build the capacity of your fundraising team to generate more net revenue.
The 2into3 Quarterly Fundraising Monitor provides subscribing organisations with benchmarking data to better inform and increase fundraising success.
