About the Fundraising Effectiveness Project:

In 2006, AFP and the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute established the Fundraising Effectiveness Project to conduct research on fundraising effectiveness and help nonprofit organizations increase their fundraising results at a faster pace. The project goal is to help nonprofit organizations measure, compare, and maximize their annual growth in giving. The FEP is focused on “effectiveness” (maximizing growth in giving) rather than “efficiency” (minimizing costs).

In this session, we will:

  • Introduce Fundraising Effectiveness project principles and concepts.
  • Show you how to use the “Fundraising Fitness Test” to analyze your organization as it relates to donor and gift retention metrics
  • Share with you how you can share and expand the reach of this internationally recognized program.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will understand:

  • The value and concepts involved in the Fundraising Effectiveness Project and the Growth in Giving Initiatives.
  • How to gain access to and utilize the Fundraising Fitness Test in their own organization.
  • How to engage and involve themselves and their organizations in the Growth in Giving Initiatives/Fundraising Effectiveness Project.

Target Audience:

  • Appropriate for anyone who has fundraising responsibility, from Board members to development professionals.
