Online Fundraising, Advocacy, Marketing and More

11 a.m. Pacific Time

The big news: online revenue for nonprofits grew by just 1% in 2018. But that's just scratching the surface of the M+R Benchmarks Study, and if we dig a bit deeper we will find a vast treasure trove of crucial findings. Join us for an in-depth review of digital data from dozens of nonprofits and explore what’s working, what’s trending, and what’s changing for online fundraising, advocacy, and marketing.

We'll share key metrics for:

  • Fundraising, including retention, ticket sales, membership, and more.
  • Email, from advocacy to newsletters to fundraising.
  • Social media, with a special focus on Facebook Fundraisers.
  • Digital ads -- how much your peers are spending, where they're spending it, and what kind of returns they're seeing.
  • Mobile, including web traffic, bulk SMS, and peer-to-peer advocacy.
