Fund Raising Bright Spots

What does excellence look like?

Some of the answers are in Fund Raising Bright Spots, a report commissioned by the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund in partnership with CompassPoint. Research identified and confirmed successful organizations know individual support is critical and a consistent revenue strategy is part of the organization’s DNA.

The holistic culture and behavior of each organization includes:

  • Fundraising is distributed broadly across staff, board, and volunteers.
  • Fundraising is core to the organization’s identity.
  • Fundraising succeeds because of authentic relationships with donors.
  • Fundraising is characterized by persistence, discipline, and intentionality.

“Why is this important?”
“Because fundraising is NOT about the money. It is about the RELATIONSHIPS”

"If you would like ideas on how to build strong and productive relationships with your donors, we can help."
