Data Reveals Donor Retention as Driver of 2020 Fundraising Success

We just released a follow up to our DonorPerfect Fundraising Benchmarks Report, which now includes a full year in review on growth in giving.

Fundraising report showing year over year growth in giving by organization size (large, medium, and small), comparing 2019 to 2020. 2020 Fundraising Report table showing year over year growth in giving by seven organization sectors.

The data also revealed organizations with strong donor retention experienced higher growth in giving than those that did not.
