Nonprofits, charities, schools, and churches face stiff competition for donations. While all are vital to the community and highly deserving of funding, the question that nonprofits face is how to maintain—or even better—increase revenue? Fundraising tends to be the typical answer to increasing donations. However, it is not an easy task, and the cost to the nonprofit is steep considering the time, money, and manpower and womanpower.
How Much Does A Fundraising Dollar Really Cost?
- Annual Fundraising Events Cost: loss of $0.20 on every raised dollar
- Direct Mail Acquisition (with a 1% return): loss of $1.00 to $1.25
- Direct Mail Renewal (with a 50% return): loss of $0.20 on every dollar raised
- Benefits and Special Events: loss of $0.50 on every dollar raised

The amazing story of SugarShopper eCommerce store came from a day in the salon owned by the mother and daughter team: Jacqueline and Elizabeth Asher. The inspiration came from connecting a client to their fundraising efforts in the salon.
