The Fundraising Agency That Helps Nonprofits Grow

#78: How email can support a magical generosity experience, with Tim Sarrantonio

Share This Post

How do you evaluate your email campaigns?  

If you’re a nonprofit—especially one that doesn’t raise tens of millions every year—you may have a hard time finding benchmarks from organizations like yours. 

Most of the data on benchmarks and proven practices comes from either very large organizations or from for-profit companies. 

Until now. 

On this week’s BuildGood Live, we’re talking to Tim Sarrantonio from Neon ONE about the new Nonprofit Email Report. 

Tim and his team analyzed key email performance metrics from 1,495 nonprofit

organizations of all sizes and missions. 

They evaluated 37,472 email campaigns (that’s 157,048,634 individual emails) that were sent during 2022, then broke down important benchmarks by list size. 

In our chat, we’ll get into: 

  • The 5 common traits of highly effective emails
  • The anatomy of an email that raises more money 
  • Words to include (and avoid) in subject lines
  • Benchmarks for open rates, unsubscribe rates and fundraising performance

Whether you’re a large nonprofit with thousands of email subscribers or a smaller org with an audience in the hundreds, you’re bound to learn how to up your email game a little bit.
