Project Details

What We Need
  • A Membership Strategy document of up to 10 pages, including analysis of the Organization’s current membership program, step-by-step guide to a new and improved program, growth goals and creative outreach strategies
Additional Details

We tried a monthly giving program once and we only had four people sign up! Monthly giving is essential to the ongoing financial health of our organization and need to get people on board with a great and enticing program.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have our past work, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a database and online resources, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,908 , allowing us to pay our staff.

Monthly donors are more likely to stay loyal with their donations than one-time donors. We need to cultivate this area to keep financially stable.
