Most nonprofit organizations can’t make ends meet without a surge in year-end donations. In an effort to raise donations, nonprofit fundraising efforts step up their game during the final quarter of the year. Your nonprofit is likely in that position right now.
One simple thing that can have a big impact on fundraising success is social media:
47% of Americans learn about nonprofit causes through social media. (Abila)
59% of people who interact with nonprofits on social media go on to donate money. (Waggener Edstrom)
Nonprofits that use social networking tools such as Facebook or Twitter to communicate with their donors see a 40% increase in donations. (npEngage)
