Do You Know the Hidden Potential in Your Donor File?

Do You Know the Hidden Potential in Your Donor File?

Over the past two decades, our team at Veritus has analyzed hundreds of different non-profits’ data files, and we see the same trends over and over again. While overall revenue may go up year-over-year, many donors give less over time (or go away altogether). But organizations are often unaware this is happening because the loss is covered up by gifts from new donors. 
 
For today’s episode, Theresa Tapocsi (Client Experience Leader and and Client Services Data Team Lead) and Amy Chapman (Director of Client Engagement) join Jeff for a conversation about the process and approach we take in our free Donor File Assessment. If you’re ready to uncover your organization’s hidden potential and identify opportunities for relational giving, tune in now!
