I hope you’ll consider taking part in a fundraising data project, the Individual Donor Benchmark Survey. This survey is designed to help you, and other small and mighty nonprofits, better understand your fundraising data and grow your revenue. The survey is only for US-based organizations with budgets under $2 million, and a base of individual donors. If that describes your organization, please consider being part of the survey.

As a thank you for taking the survey you will get:

  • a personalized report of your data as compared to the survey findings
  • a copy of the full report and infographic (view last year’s report here)
  • access to a participants’ only webinar with the report author
  • a chance to win a subscription to the Grassroots Fundraising Journal or a consultation with Ravela Insights

Last year’s project surfaced some very interesting results for small nonprofits. The Stanford Social Innovation Review covered the project in the article “To Boost Individual Donor Giving, Nonprofits Need a Plan”, which we shared with you recently.

I urge you to check out the project and get involved by clicking this link: http://www.thirdspacestudio.com/idbproject/. The survey is open now through April 8th. If you have any questions, you can be in touch with the project’s leader, Heather Yandow, at heather@thirdspacestudio.com.
