The Fundraising Agency That Helps Nonprofits Grow

#90: The 4 core ways to acquire new donors

Share This Post

You need to retain donors if you want to grow sustainably—but you also need to find new donors. 

It seems simple enough, but we all want to skip to the “growing revenue” part without investing in both acquisition and retention. It doesn’t work. I’ve tried. You need to work on both, consistently and reliably. 

If you’re a listener of this show, you already know that listening to donors, engaging them, asking, celebrating and reporting is the best way to keep more of your donors connected, and giving. 

But how do you acquire those donors in the first place? 

On today’s podcast, we get into the core 4 ways you can use to find new donors. They are 

  1. cold outreach
  2. warm outreach
  3. content and media
  4. advertising

None of them are a magic solution that will grow your donor file. Each of them takes work, time, focus, and yes—money. And all of them work together to make your organization known, and to help you earn the trust of prospective donors.
