As a nonprofit leader, you’re expected to have all the answers.

Your staff and other leaders are looking to you for key questions like: 

  • How do we grow giving?
  • How can fundraising and marketing be more integrated? 
  • Is our communication strategy with donors effective? 
  • Which strategies are actually leading to results?

If you’re being honest, you don’t have all the answers about what truly works to grow your organization. But one of the best ways to get new ideas for growth is to look at our peers and see what’s working for others.

Which is why we set out to create a benchmark report designed exclusively for you: nonprofit leaders and executives.
