Original Nonprofit Fundraising Research

Through our original research studies, you get to see what nonprofits of all shapes and sizes are doing when it comes to online fundraising, both good and bad, from the perspective that matters most: the donors. We become a donor, subscriber, or follower ourselves and track the experience and interactions with hundreds of organizations to better see things from a donor's point of view to identify where nonprofits can and need to improve.

"It is a great opportunity to learn from real-time examples and data-driven learnings. I discovered important take-aways, that even after 10 years of experience in the field, made me reconsider some of my own assumptions. It was practical, informative and fast-paced, packing a lot of information into a really tangible and digestible format."
