Challenge: Annual Fund Participation

Every nonprofit organization would like to increase their annual fund.  But when thoughts turn toward an enhanced revenue achievement, the focus immediately shifts to major donors.  A strong, but often ignored, path is to increase participation.

This is your Mersky, Jaffe & Associates Challenge for the month:

Consider 3 ways in which you could increase your participation.  Write them down and list what resources (human and otherwise) it would take to make a difference.  Pick the one that seems most likely to get approval and “buy-in” from staff and volunteer leadership.  Present it at your next opportunity.  Bathe in the afterglow of success.

Mersky, Jaffe & Associates and our learning community would love to hear your ideas.  Please tell us what you come up with and any results in our comment section below.
