Unlocking Growth for Organizations and Idealists Like You

Let’s Get Digital

It’s that time of year again! It’s time for us to take a look back at 2013 and the state of digital fundraising.

The Digital Giving Index is an annual report that provides insights into the trends currently impacting the digital fundraising space. This year Network for Good and Plenty joined forces to examine the data and dig up the information you and your organization need to know. This information is a compilation of data from Network for Good’s online donation platform and observations from their Online Giving Study.

Let’s Do It Together

The first three months of Plenty have been a whirlwind. It is hard for me to believe that we’ve only been around since the end of November, because in only a few short months I’ve learned so much from the fantastic team here.

It wasn’t easy leaving Event 360, the company I helped found eleven years ago. Event 360 specializes in event fundraising. Through our work we raised nearly a billion dollars for charity. As the CEO, I was responsible for strategy, for presenting a great deal of our client-facing work, and more than anything, for helping drive the values of the company. Event 360 was (and will always be) my baby, and I’m tremendously proud of what I helped accomplish there.

The Right Next Step

“Why is it so hard to get everyone to understand this? I thought we were aligned.”

Every organization struggles to focus on what is important, how to articulate it clearly and communicate it often and everywhere. So how do you manage this dynamic? First, you have to understand that it is a dynamic to be managed, not a problem to be solved. Once this is established, a consensus on what the organization’s higher purpose is must be reached. This purpose should then be supported by the types of beliefs and behaviors under which you want the organization to operate. Lastly, you must decide what the most important thing to fix is – what one thing will get you closer to success – and then create a plan to address it.
