Like you – and everyone else in the nonprofit fundraising world – I’ve been eager to see how donors who gave for the first time during COVID would behave in subsequent months. In 2020, Missions experienced a flood of generosity unlike ever before. For BDI clients, giving was up 25% over 2019. Online giving specifically was up 96% YOY with 14.6% of total 2020 revenue given online. Wow!

We at BDI are proud and inspired by this incredible story of our client and friend, Willie Parish, President of Bread of Life Mission in Seattle, WA. By sharing this interview from The Seattle Medium, I hope that Willie’s story provides you with a boost of encouragement and reminds you of the opportunity that we, in the nonprofit world, have to save and transform lives every day.
We expected 2021 to be an eventful and exciting year – and we haven’t been disappointed there! Big questions about new policies related to philanthropy loom… and we’re watching closely, waiting for answers.
With a high degree of certainty, I’m confident that we share a common daily challenge: There’s so much critical work to do and not enough time to accomplish it all. As such, efficiency in our professional lives is a major issue that we’re constantly wrestling with.
