Having the right tools can make all the difference in both the end results of fundraising campaigns as well as the morale of the fundraiser. And the importance of morale shouldn’t be underestimated. As we noted in a recent blog post, the average tenure for a fundraiser is just 16 months. Burnout plays a big part in that stat.

The Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack offers a powerful platform for fundraising out-of-the-box along with an immense ability to further customize that platform to meet your own needs. Over the last several months, we’ve highlighted a number of ways to do so. As summer nears a close and we look toward the end-of-year giving season, we offer this list of 10 how-to recipes to make your job as a fundraiser easier and your work more effective. Each range in the time required to implement. Some require as few as 15 minutes. Some a little over an hour. Feel free to tackle one or two in your own Salesforce instance to prepare your nonprofit for the end-of-year fundraising sprint.

And, to prepare yourself for that fundraising sprint, watch our free webinar, How to Raise More Money Without Burning Out, with special guest presenter Beth Kanter. We discuss signs of burnout and strategies for self-care and organizational culture that promotes it – along with some other Salesforce-specific suggestions for staying fresh as a fundraiser.
