Maximizing Your Donor Database I: Inputs

Regardless of how you manage your donor information and mailings, there are fundamental data entry systems every development office should utilize in order to maximize your fundraising capabilities. Part One of a full-day SkillBuilder (attendees may attend one or both sections) brings two different perspectives together to help you decide what information, and if, it’s important to track within your database. We take you beyond the gift entry to implement ways your database can be used for more than just accurate recordkeeping.

This SkillBuilder will include:

  • Participant-driven decision-making regarding data entry beyond the gift, bios, and mailings
  • Why we use the hierarchy of campaigns, funds and appeals in every record, every time
  • Analyzing data entry based on reporting and mailing – what are you missing that makes the outputs easier?
