When it comes to our fundraising activity, our biases can cloud our ideas about donors in general and about who will donate to our organization specifically.
If we exclude qualified prospective donors based on preconceived ideas about their ability to donate and the sources from which they can donate, are we achieving our potential?
Although we will never entirely rid ourselves of biases, we can improve our overall fundraising impact with intelligent automation that mitigates those biases.
Ignoring technological tools means we aren’t supporting our staff and volunteers well. It means we’re not an attractive prospect when we set out to hire the best new talent. And above all, it means we’re not serving our donors by helping them uncover untapped potential for smarter giving.
PhilanthropyLab® is a smart technology that doesn't care about the size of your operation.
It pushes past your biases, showing your donors win-win scenarios for giving to your organization.
PhilanthropyLab® provides education, training and tools for charities with an aim to increase philanthropic giving among fundraisers, board members, volunteers, and financial and estate planning professionals.
Competition for raising funds in Canada is growing. Having tools and expert advice at your fingertips is a tremendous advantage when discussing philanthropic giving with your donors.
We already understand the need for change and innovation in the way we fundraise:
The need to change and innovate is already upon all charities. The need to reinvent how charities “rethink” their challenges and vulnerabilities as well as build a sustainable model for program delivery, operational sustainability and fundraising is required to address current and future needs.
