Getting the Most from Giving: How to Maximize Donations to Your Nonprofit

by Annabel Maw

We don’t want to say donations mean everything to a nonprofitâ??but they sure mean a lot, especially when your organization relies on these funds to ensure that you’re fulfilling your mission, programs are running smoothly, and Board members are happy.

The thing is, it’s not always so easy to get donations, even if you’re a well-known organization. We know first-hand not only because we’ve worked in critical roles at a variety of nonprofits, but because we’ve interviewed dozens of nonprofit administrators who are customers of our company JotForm.

Annabel worked in the development department of a large San Francisco nonprofit, while Chad worked as a program manager for nonprofits in Oakland and Cincinnati. Sometimes we were successful in our fundraising campaigns and sometimes we weren’t. But we took strides to constantly learn and optimize our strategies. Because of this, in the end we always met, and sometimes even exceeded our donation goals.

This donation guide pulls from that experience, but more importantly, it dives into researched best practices for maximizing donations at any nonprofit. We’ll go over topics on how to make donating easy for all types of donorsâ??so much so that they’ll want to donate over and over again. We’ll talk about the importance of branding, benefits of cultivating engagementâ??on and offline, what makes a donation and volunteer form effective, giving back to your donors, and more.

Our hope is that this guide helps you to not only maximize donations, but also exceed your donation goals to the nth degree.

We’re grateful for your hard work and all you do to better our world.

All the best,
Annabel and Chad

Anneka is totally focused on her careerâ??through a powerful combination of talent and hard work, she has worked her way up from the bottom to the top of her job as a professional makeup artist. But when she turns up to one particularly prestigious shoot, and meets the photographerâ??sexy and confident Jackâ??Anneka’s life is about to be turned on its head.

That is, until a mysteriously sexy man embraces her on the dance floor of her favorite club.
His name is Vince. He’s as much an astounding dancer as he is a flawless male specimen; the ridges of his toned, cut muscles always evident through his clothing. More than that, his confidence is unrivaled. Following their tryst on the dance floor, which drives the fellow club-goers wild, she finds herself helpless to the attraction she feels – going home with him is the only option. Joan believes herself to be every bit in control of her emotions, but she’s putty around Vince. His touch makes her melt, his virility in the bedroom dwarfing her ability to control herself.

Although tempted by the unknown and strongly drawn to him, Jessica begins to doubt whether she can handle Seth’s sexual appetite and is afraid of what she might become. Will she allow Seth to bring her back to life? And will she discover a secret part of herself, a passion waiting to become alive?

Bedside Manner (Hearts and Health Book 2)

by DJ Jamison

Dr. Paul Johnston can’t get a set of dark, somber eyes out of his head, and the timing couldn’t be worse.
The last thing he needs is to fall for a patient. Not now, when he’s been put on paid leave pending review of a formal complaint. One that accuses him of sexual impropriety of some kind. It’s possible he let his newfound freedom as a divorced, out-of-the-closet gay man go to his head, but he’s certain — mostly — he didn’t do anything wrong. Now, he’s struggling to handle the reality that his job is in danger and the only guy he wants should be off-limits.

Zane Kavanaugh is floundering, and there’s only one man who soothes the storm inside him.
Reeling from an assault that landed him in the hospital and the painful estrangement from his family since coming out, Zane is trying to get his feet under him and find his independence. He moves in with a roommate and searches for a job, all while recovering from a fractured arm and cracked ribs. None of that hurts as much as the emotional damage he’s suffered. When he connects with Dr. Paul Johnston outside of the ER, he’s drawn to the man’s calm, collected manner. It doesn’t hurt that Paul’s lack of experience with men is sexy as hell, and so are his over-the-top responses when Zane gets his lips on him.

There’s no right time to fall in love.
Paul is afraid to start a relationship, and Zane can only handle so much more rejection. Will these two find their perfect moment, or will they realize you can’t choose when and how you fall in love? If Paul can’t take a risk, he may have to choose: the career he loves or the first man to capture his heart.
