The Fundraising Agency That Helps Nonprofits Grow

#89: How to set realistic growth goals for 2024—a step by step guide

Many nonprofits want to see 10-20% growth (or more!) year over year—and are tasking their fundraising team to make it happen without a clear-eyed view of what it takes.  It’s not that sustained growth is unrealistic, but it becomes harder to raise more money year after year without investing resources (read: money and time!) in […]
