Meet Your Fundraising Goal

Don't leave potential donations on the table! As you get your campaign on a roll, think about ways you'll be able to fill your fundraising gaps.

One idea is to dig into your database for donors who haven't yet given this year but gave in the past. To get a list of lapsed donors, use the "Pattern" tab in a data mining operation.

After obtaining the list, you can review the accounts for ways to communicate with them. Maybe you have a home contact you can get in touch with, a related person whom you can call, a staff member who knows them, or someone may remember them from an event they volunteered at or attended. You might even be able to find more info by searching for them on Google!

Plan a Great Prospecting Strategy

Did you know that many of the Andar prospecting tools and functions are based on the work of Kent E. Dove? His famous book, Conducting a Successful Major Gifts and Planned Giving Program: A Comprehensive Guide and Resource is an incredible read for anyone involved in nonprofit organizations.

"Prospects" are potential donors or volunteers. Andar’s prospecting system includes sophisticated techniques to help you develop a successful donor nurturing strategy. With it, you can fine tune your approach by identifying various levels of gifts, internal volunteers, board members, workplace campaigns, and other types of searches.

Working Too Hard on e-Pledge Campaign Setup?

Are you copying web notes and options to each organization account that runs an e-Pledge campaign? If you are, you are working too hard!

e-Community is designed to work efficiently. In fact, it is designed to be virtually maintenance free! Where e-Pledge is concerned, your e-Pledge staff should be able to set up EVERY organization in your database at the same time! The secret is in the Tailoring Account.

The Tailoring Account should be used to set up all of your common e-Pledge settings. These settings will apply to all organizations and employees. When this has been done, all of your organizations are ready!

Once you have this in place, you simply need to add the web options that are exceptions to the Tailoring Account. Of course this is simplified and every setup is different, but this is the general concept that everything is based upon.

As always our Customer Care department is ready to assist you in making your tasks easier. Let us know when you are ready to stress less!

Track Leadership Giving

Leadership Givers are Individuals whose total gift reaches a specific Level for a given Campaign Year (for example, Tocqueville, Gold, Silver, or Bronze). Andar allows your fundraising organization to define Leadership Levels to acknowledge different levels of giving. Once the Leadership Levels are defined and linked to a specific campaign or all campaigns, Andar will automatically assign an Individual Leadership Level and Combined Leadership Level to an Individual donor based on their gift amount or combined gift amount for the campaign or for all campaigns in a particular campaign year.

An Individual's Individual Leadership Level and Combined Leadership Level can also be assigned based on the fundraising organization that owns the pledges and the RUM dollars.

The leadership levels are not automatically rolled over - remember to add them for the new campaign year.

Take a look at what a Leadership Override is.

Leadership data can be viewed on Individual and Organization account profiles, custom Bio Tabs on the Individual account profiles, and Dashboards. Leadership churn data can be retrieved from Andar by Data Mining Operations and Leadership reports.
