The company has run a similar survey in the US for the past four years, and it provides an overview of information that can help not-for-profits benchmark their operations more effectively.The survey covers general operations; fundraising; technology and internet usage; and accountability and stewardship. Over 200 organisations responded and the report is broken down into two sections: the first covering the whole report and all respondents and the second looking at the size of not-for-profits and how issues may affect them differently.Overall increases in all aspects of income, expenditure, staffing and demands on the organisations were expected. Major donor giving was cited as one of the largest growth areas with seven per cent expecting increases of more than 30 per cent. A fifth of respondents now have a member of staff dedicated to managing high value gifts. Generally income is still rising with individual donations, Gift Aid and special events responsible for the biggest increases.More than half of organisations expect increases in staffing and a whopping 80 per cent expect greater demands on services and at the same time 13 per cent expect their income to decline.http://www.blackbaud.co.uk/resources/soni/soni.aspx AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 15 February 2008 | Newscenter_img Blackbaud releases results of first UK not-for-profit industry survey About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
