Our survey results provide a snapshot of how responding organizations are persevering amid challenges, evolving their fundraising tactics, and planning for 2021 and beyond.
- 21% of respondents reported an increase in fundraising due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020
- More than a third of respondents said they expect an increase in fundraising in 2021 from major gifts, annual appeals, and direct marketing
- Though only 39% of respondents reported conducting a virtual major gift solicitation during the pandemic, 74% of those who conducted virtual requests said they were as successful or more successful than typical in-person solicitations
