    Every year, nonprofit consultants M+R release their annual Benchmarks report, which provides an overview of digital trends in the sector. This year's report addressed issues such as email list growth and churn, the rise of monthly giving, and the impact of social media's peer-to-peer fundraising for nonprofits. If you haven't yet had time to dig into the full report, here are some of the top highlights that we think are important for nonprofits to know:

    The State of Nonprofit Donor Retention (And What To Do About It)

    March 5, 2019

    As a general rule, retaining existing donors costs less than acquiring new ones. Current donors are a curated universe who have already demonstrated a belief in your organization’s mission, and willingness to take action toward it. As such, for most nonprofit organizations, pursuing strategies to reducing donor losses is the most affordable strategy for increasing net fundraising gains.

    Tracking Long-Term Donor Value: The Report You Shouldn't Miss in 2019

    February 13, 2019

    While almost all nonprofit professionals recognize the importance of running data-driven programs, most fundraising and digital staff of all levels don’t feel like they have access to the data they need for informing strategic decisions. In a 2016 study conducted by EveryAction and Nonprofit Hub, nearly half of nonprofit professionals reported that they do not consistently utilize data as part of their decision-making process. This is not a result of lacking understanding or desire for data on their part, rather it is often the simple reality that pulling large reports can be a complex and difficult process that takes an extraordinarily long time, making getting up-to-date numbers an arduous task. In many cases, nonprofits are forced to hire outside consultants to pull the reports necessary for them to get a full view of their program's successes and weaknesses.
