Great story from a development/fundraising officer about how they've grown their donor retention rates from 29% to 43% in a few short years. #amazing  
Over a 5 year period, we've gone from retaining 29% of our donors to 43%.

End of Year Fundraising tips. Yes, us nonprofit folks are definitely starting to think about the end of year! :)
Email is one of the most important communication channels for your nonprofit. It also happens to be the top driver of online donations, generating 35% of gifts.

The term "content marketing" isn't a widely used one in the nonprofit, school and charity space, yet content marketing all the time. Help us get a better understanding of the landscape ... take the survey! ... and share it w/ friends.

I dig helping nonprofits and #NPTech folks get better w/ technology platforms, online fundraising and social media.
Introduction
Hi.

Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully the below bit of info. will help you get to know me better.

Currently, I'm a digital/online marketing strategist at Blackbaud, but I've spent the past eight years helping nonprofits be more effective online (fundraising, email communications, social media, technology solutions).

I've worked with a pretty diverse group of organizations including LIVESTRONG, United Methodist Church, American Heart Association, Family Life, Darkness to Light, Access Fund, University of Richmond, Big Brothers Big Sisters, ChildFund Int’l, InTouch Ministries, EQUIP, UJA-Federation of New York, North American Mission Board,  Heifer Int'l, University of Notre Dame, University of Richmond, and many more.

Want to learn more about me or the topics I'm interested in? Check out my blog npENGAGE and my guest posts on Mashable

Oh, and I like to get out and speak once in a while. I've lead discussions, presented solo sessions and organized panels for NTC, SXSW, BBCon and numerous other conferences. Here's a few slide decks to give you and idea of what I generally speak about.

Lastly, I dig talking to interesting people about how they are changing the world. Check out a bunch of the interview's I've done (Beth Kanter, Chris Brogan,  Randi Zuckerberg, Geoff Livingston, Chris Noble and many more!).
