Why should you put any time or energy into bequest fundraising? Sure, it means creating a stream of large gifts that will fund your organization for years to come …

VIDEO: Blithering Nonprofit Executives Discuss Making Direct Mail Great Again

The Blithering Nonprofit Executives decide they can make direct mail a lot better by making a few much-needed “reformations.”

  • Communicate a lot less often!
  • Get rid of all that syrupy emotion and instead use facts and stats!
  • Replace the boring old letter with a cool-looking brochure!
  • Stop communicating with the top donors!

You might recognize these ideas, as they are brought to the table on a regular basis.

Be careful about what the Blithering Nonprofit Executives want to do. They can do deep and long-lasting
damage to your fundraising.

VIDEO: Blithering Nonprofit Executives Brainstorm a Donor Newsletter

Two Blithering Nonprofit Executives … old farts … excuse me, make that nonprofit leaders — the kind of people who make a lot of decisions in fundraising these days (though not a whole lot of the actual work), brainstorm the content of their donor newsletter.

We at Moceanic managed to record the video of their web conference, and share it with you as a warning:  Don’t let this happen to you and your newsletter!

A well-built donor newsletter can raise a lot of funds — and really improve donor retention.  Because it meets the needs of donors. It makes them glad they gave … and more likely to keep on giving.

But none of this is likely when your newsletter is based on the opinions and likings of people who don’t know the sometimes counterintuitive truths about what makes a donor newsletter work.

You can resist the uninformed direction of Blithering Nonprofit Executives (who can be found in all ages, backgrounds, genders, and IQ levels) by knowing the facts.

This is why you should join The Fundraisingology Lab and get access to Tom Ahern’s powerful Moceanic course, Making Money with Your Donor Newsletter.

It could be one of the most important and impactful decisions you make this year.

And when they see the results, even the Blithering Nonprofit Executives will thank you for doing the right things in your donor newsletter!
