Designing an Economy-Proof Fundraising Program

How can you best prepare to overcome a recession? Does your program have the necessary resiliency?

Economists are projecting a 65%+ likelihood of a recession in the next 12 months. While recessions typically mean periods of temporary turbulence, they are a common trend in our economy, and we have weathered them before. With the average length of a campaign spanning nearly a decade, organizations should expect to see a recession during its lifecycle or during a fundraising initiative. It is important that organizations understand how to support the organization, team members, and donors during these periods of downturn while maintaining course on strategic initiatives.
