Measure how your fundraising team’s structure and outcomes stack up against your peers.
What You Get
Partners to help you understand trends in your sector.
Whether you’re looking to answer a specific question or examine emerging trends, benchmarking enables your organization to assess its strengths and areas for growth to determine what you’re doing well—and where you’re going next.
Areas of Expertise
Benchmarking provides comparative information for organizational leaders who are interested in performance and metrics, through:
High-level information about trends in the sector to compare your organization to a pre-selected cohort group of peers.
In-depth data collection and interviews with participating peer organizations to inform metrics for fundraising, staffing, budgeting, and more.
A chance to think bigger
Where should you go next?
Including a combination of peer and aspirant organizations can spur visionary thinking about what it will take to get to that next level. You can even consider including peers in other sectors and other regions to explore new possibilities.
