The Fundraising Effectiveness Project began in 2006 as a means for measuring and reporting fundraising metrics. A joint project of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute, the Fundraising Effectiveness Project conducts research on fundraising effectiveness and helps nonprofit organizations increase their fundraising results at a faster pace. The project goal is to help nonprofit organizations measure, compare, and maximize their annual growth in giving. In this session, you will learn more about the project, the information you can gain, and how to use the recommendations as well as how to submit your data for evaluation.
