Will Nonprofits Leave Facebook?

 Facebook donations have given nonprofits the ability to fundraise from their donors on the world’s leading website with much ease.  With just a Donate button on Facebook, fundraisers can get funds for different causes from all over the globe. While the help that nonprofits have received from Facebook cannot be downplayed, some nonprofit leaders are concerned with the changes that are affecting their charities. Some of these leaders are discussing the possibility of leaving Facebook entirely due to the increasing perception of censorship imposed on nonprofits’ messaging, which puts barriers between them and their donors. One of the reasons that might have informed the decision by Facebook is the Cambridge Analytica saga that led to massive disinformation and data collection.


Create Your Nonprofit's Strategic Plan

Creating a strategic plan for your nonprofit is one of the methods of ensuring that your mission is well understood and achieved. The strategic plan puts your mission into goals that are not only easy but also measurable and easy to track. It defines where your organization wants to go and outlines how you should get there. Since the business environment changes along the way, your strategic plan also should be flexible enough to address the changes as this will make the plan valuable in guiding your nonprofit to success. As a leader of a nonprofit, a strategic plan will help you land more opportunities and have a template that will guide you to offer top-notch services, ideas, and priorities. Nevertheless, the question that many people ask is; what is a strategic plan?


Grow Your Nonprofit Using These Strategies

Growth is not a hard thing to recognize in a nonprofit organization. In fact, you can easily find out how your nonprofit has grown over time by simply looking at the total fundraising revenue from one year and comparing it with the previous years. However, what is difficult is finding out precisely how you have come from a specific time to where you are at the moment. Understandably, there are many worthy nonprofits out there, only a few of them have efficient programs that are holistic and capable of withstanding the taste of time. 


Track These Nonprofit Issues and Stay Ahead of Them

As the world keeps evolving, nonprofits find themselves with a lot on their plate to handle. From the ever-changing regulations to increased competition for donor money and volunteers, running a nonprofit in the modern age is not always easy. These challenges are, however, fun and make the job more rewarding in the end since these challenges can lead to innovation. Solutions to some of these problems are what makes nonprofits always fresh. The most important thing here is that you need to know the issues and challenges that you are likely to encounter to stay ahead of the game.


Trending Nonprofit Areas for the Rest of 2020

The year 2020 has been a year of many negatives in almost every industry. Just like any other, nonprofits have not been left out in facing these challenges. Despite the tough beginning, things are moving well, and nonprofits must understand the trends so that they can adequately measure up to the changes in the industry for the remaining part of 2020 and beyond. Below are trends that you should expect going forward as predicted by industry professionals.


Nonprofit Leaders Should Take These Steps Now

The year 2020 is perhaps the toughest year for every business, and nonprofits have not been spared. The extent of destruction and pain that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused is unimaginable, and this might just be the beginning. In the United States alone, more than 50,000 lives have been lost, and millions of livelihoods torn apart due to the after-effects of the pandemic. This might just be a tip on the iceberg as many losses are yet to be witnessed. As companies continue losing money, and employees get furloughed, nonprofits are facing many challenges that they have never experienced before. Nonprofits have offered essential support for people to get through crises before. As they carry on with their operations, they should expect their funding to reduce significantly due to economic slowdown. Owing to the changes that have been occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, nonprofits should take the following measures:


Remote Fundraising Tools are Available and Critical

When it comes to using remote tools to support workforce, nonprofit sector organizations appear to have been left behind compared to technology companies. This is due to technology and infrastructure costs that are often high or unavailable at all. The truth in this, however, is that there are many advantages that remote tools can offer. They can enhance productivity and can help nonprofits do highly critical tasks and increase their funding altogether. According to a report by the National Center for Charitable Statistics, the amount of donations continues growing, but the number of nonprofits has also increased. The US alone has more than 1.5 million active charitable organizations that conduct different fundraising activities. Due to this surge, nonprofits must find ways to articulate their cause and compel donors to give more if they are to remain viable. This can only be achieved by using digital tools that connect potential donors to different causes.


Nonprofit Tech Challenges You Need to Address Now

Operating a nonprofit organization can be highly rewarding but can equally be challenging. In a  world where technology determines many operations, leaders of nonprofits have a lot on their plate, from ever-changing technologies to shifts in government regulations. Although many things keep coming up, nonprofits must always focus their efforts on updating their technologies, taking into account the fact that technology has always become the least among their priorities in the past. With the increasing cybersecurity issues in the corporate environment today, nonprofits must always stay abreast with changes that may impact their operations. While doing so, many nonprofits face tech-related challenges, some of that tend to affect their authority.


Giving Recedes Slightly in 2019 After Surge in 2018

Giving decreased nominally by 1.4 percent in 2019 compared to 2018, but remained 6 percent higher than in 2017, according to the Fundraising Effectiveness Project’s 2019Fourth Quarter Report. The losses in donations were focused during the months of April to June of 2019, where giving year to date was down 5.7 percent through June. The charitable sector spent the remainder of the year climbing out of that deficit before ending up at a total loss of 1.4 percent.


Nonprofits Providing Relief through Tech

For decades, the success of nonprofits has been defined by the amount of money they raise from donors. In the age of technology, this is no longer the case. Apart from the amount a nonprofit can raise, the ability of particular nonprofit to adopt technology and use it in providing its services has proven to be a game-changer. Technology has helped in various aspects of nonprofit ranging from engaging potential donors, eliciting fundraising and enabling nonprofits to track their operations.  It goes without saying of course that for a nonprofit to claim to be successful, it must deliver on its mission and objectives that the organization was created to fulfil.
