The 2011 Nonprofit Fundraising Survey

The Nonprofit Research Collaborative (NRC)* asks organizations about fundraising results three times a year.  This month, we have questions about specific fundraising techniques and whether funds raised are up or down compared to last year. The list of techniques ranges from board giving to SMS/Texting. There are also a few questions about capital campaigns in this wave.

What is working for your organization? What is not? What do you think holds the most promise for your organization’s fundraising success? Please click the link or enter the URL into your browser to open the survey.

When you take the survey and submit your answers, you can also provide your email address to get a copy of the report that will come out shortly after Labor Day.

If you have questions, please contact Melissa Brown. She is coordinating this project for the NRC. Melissa can be reached at or at 317-506-5651.

*Seven organizations have banded together to form the Nonprofit Research Collaborative. They are: Association of Fundraising Professionals, Blackbaud, The Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, The Foundation Center, Giving USA Foundation, GuideStar, and the National Center for Charitable Statistics at the Urban Institute.
