Erik Daubert, MBA, ACFRE, Chair of the Growth in Giving Initiative and the Fundraising Effectiveness Project, joins us to demonstrate how nonprofits can use the Fundraising Fitness Test to understand their own financial development data. Through this tool, nonprofit leaders and development professionals can assess the impact of growth decisions and new strategies based on their own historical fundraising performance results. The tool also allows organizations to compare their data with national fundraising information.
The Fundraising Effectiveness Project (FEP), one of the largest philanthropic research projects in the world, was established in 2006 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute, to conduct research on fundraising effectiveness and help nonprofits increase their fundraising results at a faster pace. To this end, the Project provides free tools like the Fundraising Fitness Test for tracking and evaluating an organization’s annual growth in giving.
With over 25 years of experience, Erik Daubert is regarded as a leader in the areas of financial development and nonprofit management. In addition to chairing the Growth in Giving Initiative and the Fundraising Effectiveness Project, he serves as faculty with the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, LaGrange College and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. He is also an Affiliated Scholar with the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute. Erik is Immediate Past Chair of the AFP Research Council and Director of Financial Development Education at the YMCA of the USA.
