5 Questions that Measure the Success of Fundraising Events

There are many fundraising events in Kansas City that take place throughout the year. While many of these generate vast sums of revenue to support their causes, that’s not the only measure of success.

In all honesty, that is only one small part of the equation that determines whether your fundraising and partnership efforts have succeeded or failed. Here are five questions your organization needs to ask after every fundraising drive.

5 Questions for Measuring Fundraising Success

  1. How well was the event organized? Did staff, board members, and volunteers perform at the levels that were expected of them?
  2. Were potential leaders and cheerleaders identified and engaged?
  3. Will the funds raised adequately cover your organization’s budget and objectives for the year/tasks you have planned?
  4. Was the general public made aware of your efforts and the sponsors who are helping you achieve your goals?
  5. Were new donors cultivated, and are they eager to use their professional networks to help you expand your reach?

Here are some tips that will help you build and attract others into a charity partnership in Kansas City.

  • Start a fundraising committee. Sort out the causes that your employees are interested in supporting, then assemble a core team of people who can champion the cause. For best results, choose local causes that everyone can get behind.
  • Take a look at your mission statement, your stakeholders, and the companies you do business with. Compare it to your clients, and see where your network leads to. You might discover that your peers are already engaged in charitable efforts that you can work toward together.
