Resolutions Poll and Shared Insight Highlight Key Challenges Nonprofits Are Likely to Face in 2009; Nonprofit Resolutions Guide Created
New Guide Helps Nonprofit Professionals Keep Resolutions and Use Technology to gain Efficiency and Effectiveness
Austin, Texas (January 28, 2009) —
During the first three weeks of 2009, hundreds of nonprofit professionals participated in a resolutions poll or shared their resolutions for 2009 through Convio’s website, online community and industry blogs. The poll answers along with other shared insight was used to create the first ever “Nonprofit Resolutions Guide” from Convio. The Guide is available for free at www.convio.com/resolve2009.
Results of the poll show that constituent empowerment, integrated channels and technology resolutions are top priorities in 2009:
- 30 percent of participants resolve to empower supporters to help tell their story, reach new people and raise funds,
- 20 percent want to better integrate traditional and online campaigns, and
- 19 percent want to better use technology to turn ideas into action.
These results, combined with analysis of feedback from Convio’s Connection Café blog (www.connectioncafe.com) and more than one dozen industry bloggers who participated in the online discussion led to development of the Guide to help nonprofits keep their resolutions. Each section of the Guide focuses on key resolutions with insight and tips on how to maintain momentum throughout the year. Readers will also find related success stories from other nonprofit organizations and information pulled from some of the best ideas shared in Convio’s online community over the past year.
