In this webinar, we will explore why your organization should consider investing more time and resources into measuring engagement and share examples of how we have worked with a range of clients to incorporate engagement into their prospect management process at the appropriate level for their operation.* *Full participation is applicable for 1.0 points in Category 1.B -Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification

    This presentation covers the last two years of progress as the Texas A&M Foundation has improved portfolio management and data presentation to drive organizational success. Accomplished through a new portfolio process and customer relationship platform (CRM), our research team now uses our internal data to inform and enable decision making ranging from the individual fundraiser and their engagements to the executive level for long term planning. This has enabled three research analysts to support a development staff of over 100 which resulted in an annual fundraising total of $297 million* with $149 million** pipelined in advance of the following fiscal year. Our research team will discuss a brief history of where we were, the tools used, key challenges overcome, and a dive into how we use data to enable our organizations success. Specifically, we will present each of the four levels of dashboards to support the daily fundraising efforts of our development staff, their leaders in managing teams, our vice presidents in resourcing their teams and predicting future challenges, and organizational management as a whole at the executive level. We look forward to engaging with the community on these common challenges we all face and how data and information systems can enable small teams to have tremendous impact. *not representative of the total annual fundraising of the organization **pipeline is not representative of total planning, but as a subset representing already input expectations on future gifts

    A successful fundraising campaign or initiative is driven by a broad understanding of an organization's constituency and the opportunities it presents. Major gift fundraising is only one piece of the strategy when thinking of overall campaign success. Understanding how to segment constituencies for all levels of fundraising, from annual to principal, sets an organization up for success in both the short-term and long-term: the marathon and the sprint.
