Curious about the latest trends in online messaging, fundraising, and advocacy? Wondering what’s up with social media and mobile communications?

Look no further – M+R and NTEN’s 2012 eNonprofit Benchmarks Study is finally here!

The 2012 study is packed with the latest trends in online messaging, fundraising, advocacy, mobile communications, and social media. Here are a few of my favorite nuggets from this year’s study participants:

  • There was a 19% increase in online revenue from 2010 to 2011, driven almost entirely by a 20% increase in the number of gifts (average gifts held steady).
  • Advocacy response rates increased by a whopping 28% in the same time period.
  • Although one-time gifts are still the mainstay of nonprofit fundraising, monthly giving grew faster than one-time giving.
  • Facebook fan pages grew by 70% in 2011!

Join us (in person or online) on April 18th to dig into the study and what it means for your program.

Hope to see you there!
