Trump bump? Clean out your idle queuePosted on March 21, 2017 by Alia McKee You likely have 100 tasks that take a back seat to your immediate goal of bringing in revenue. But if you are lucky enough to be experiencing a lift in fundraising because of the radical shift in political climate, take this opportunity to clean out your idle queue. That’s right. Plow through those tasks. Look at your sustainer recapture series. Is it effectively keeping monthly donors from churning? Do deeper analysis.

How are you tracking performance via retention metrics? How are new donors being thanked and stewarded? Insert your list of to-do’s here. The Trump bump won’t last forever. Take advantage of this time to do some spring cleaning and get your fundraising house in order.
