Wanted: Your Fundraising and Marketing Know-How

How many emails is the right number to send to your constituents? What kind of fundraising appeals are most effective? These are the questions that keep nonprofit marketing and development staff awake at night.

This year, NTEN is again teaming up with M+R on its Benchmarks Study: an in-depth look at nonprofit data, strategy, and trends. The study helps nonprofit fundraisers, organizers, and marketers make smart decisions based on the experiences of their peers. But we need your help.

Will you take part in the 11th Benchmarks Study in 2017? By adding your data, you’ll help make Benchmarks more useful. Your investment will be just a few hours of effort to collect and report your data to M+R, which will confidentially roll it up into the final study.

Complete the expression of interest form to take part.

Lyndal Cairns
Lyndal Cairns has been speaking up against injustice her whole life. As a child aged 7, petulant and self-righteous, she once scolded her father for being environmentally wasteful. Though her tactics may have tempered somewhat, there is a shade of that angry little girl in her now as she channels it into her work supporting nonprofit technology workers to efficiently and strategically battle the world’s ills. After ten years as a journalist and editor, Lyndal decided in 2010 to dedicate her working life to nonprofit and social good organizations and has worked in communications, marketing and community management for LGBT, environmental, social justice and education organizations. She brings a strategic mindset and data-driven practice to the role of Membership & Engagement Director at NTEN. Lyndal was thrilled and honored to receive the 2015 NTEN Award.
