Fundraising is Beautiful – 5 Reasons Donors Leave


 5 Reasons Donors Leave

Our very own, Steven Screen, co-hosts the podcast at Fundraising is Beautiful with Jeff Brooks.  Here is one of their recent posts.

Donor retention is down across the fundraising industry. Here are five of the most common causes of donor attrition — and what you can do to overcome them:

  1. Poor receipting
  2. Not enough communication
  3. Not enough reporting back
  4. Online and offline communications out of sync
  5. Acquisition and cultivation out of sync

The good news: You can change each of these attrition-driving things!
