Why Not Just Ask Your Donors for Feedback?
Every few years there seems to be a big push in the nonprofit industry to conduct satisfaction surveys or some other type of market research to get into the deep psyche of donors, members and volunteers. Before you know it, you have a major project on your hands — everyone wants to add questions and the budget discussion is always a tough one. If you are a fundraiser, you might find yourself in the position of asking for a budget that will do the "unthinkable" (insert sarcastic tone here) and not ask for a direct donation or even to raise donations within 12 months — and gather information.
