 As you raise more, spend less.

It’s not just what you raise, it’s what you keep.

Some would falsely claim that fundraising efforts cost nothing.  Every CEO knows otherwise.

The question is how much are you spending?  Or, how much are you losing?

Efforts tied to events and acquiring new donors are very costly.  And yet—this is where many organizations put the bulk of their programing dollars.
