Online fundraising isn’t a fad, according to Frank Barry in 15 Techniques Used by Top Nonprofits to Boost Donor Acquisition and Online Fundraising Results.
Does your church have a mobile fundraising strategy? How about your nonprofit, school, or chairity? In 2016, 17% of online transactions were made using a mobile device. This was a 21% year-over-year increase and represents a continuing shift by donors to consumer-oriented engagement channels, Barry says.
As a matter of fact, online fundraising accounted for seven-percent of total fundraising in 2016. Online fundraising has also proven to be an extremely effective donors acquisition vehicle. The surge in online giving to the ACLU—6x their yearly donations raised in one weekend— shows us the potential that exists with online giving.
