This may be an unpopular opinion (so be kind!) but I've been reflecting lately on the beast that is #Fundraising Ego.

I often see fundraisers in our sector talking about how they've raised £****M and it's causes me to question - have you though?

Here's a little #MondayMusing 🧵
Have you raised this money or have you had the privilege of helping generous people give their money?

Have you raised this money or have you experienced the joy of supporting and cheerleading inspiring fundraisers as they complete challenges and awesome endeavours?
Sure, you've presented, pitched and won partnerships, but it was the company, together with their employees and customers who gave, fundraised or offered products with a donation from each sale

150 miles walked, ran and swam in June & £330 raised for @britishredcross 💪

Cornwall 🚶🏼‍♀️ via brief stints in Cardiff & Copenhagen - it's been a difficult month 😜

Thank you so so much to everyone who's donated! 😍 All of the money raised goes directly to supporting refugees.
There's still time to donate! (Link below)

Aware that pennies are short atm, but if you can spare any your donation will help @BritishRedCross to support refugees in the UK and around the world to find safety, rebuild their lives, and reunite with their loved ones

🧵 Two words sum up Bluefrog's latest findings from speaking to donors as the cost of living crisis tightens – accept and adapt.

Donors want a coherent narrative of their own to counter the chaotic world we live in – which is felt to be increasingly outside their control. 1/6 Image
The seemingly never-ending series of crises we face has caused people to readjust their focus. They are accepting and adjusting to the big things that are beyond their control (such as the war in Ukraine and the economic crisis). But the need for control has not diminished. 2/6
It has been transferred to those areas which are closest to their own lives and is of growing importance. That means there is more desire amongst donors to see the impact of their giving and, importantly, to know that their gifts are appreciated. 3/6

India's #crypto arc in a global perspective: India lags the world by an average of 2-3 years in terms of #crypto #regulatory framework development. We are now on the 3rd Inter-Ministerial Committee on crypto. Some pts from my session at #HODLConference2021 @IAMAIForum
India's adoption of #cryptocurrency is ramping up exponentially, signalling a clear demand for these tokens in the country. India recently ranked a whopping second on Chainalysis's Global #Crypto Adoption Index @chainalysis @SEBI_India @nsitharaman @RBI @NPCI_NPCI
However, the market cap of #India #crypto projects are approx. $12 billion USD which is a small fraction of the global market cap which stands at approx. $2 trillion USD @0xPolygon @WazirXIndia @PersistenceOne @QuickswapDEX @FrontierDotXYZ @UniLend_Finance @TheMahaDAO

A lot of people had questions on my last tweet about pre-seed valuations. How does valuation vary in the US? How does it vary across regions? How much are people raising? Let's answer them!
One key point I want to make is that while the market moves up or down, on the whole, there is still a lot of variation! Looking at the graph from last time, you can see that one standard deviation is $4M even within the US market. Image
It’s also key to note that in addition to valuations going up, so is the variation! you can see that in the band around the previous graph and in the distribution in this one Image

Here are the key findings from @DocSend's latest pre-seed fundraising research covered in today's webinar:…

Thread 👇 Image
In 2020, VCs spent over 4 minutes reading decks that successfully raised. Last year, VCs spent more time on decks that were unsuccessful in fundraising. Image
When VCs read your pitch deck, they will go back to read it to dig into more slides for more information. Image

Did some prep for a workshop and upcoming talks around benchmarks and #nonprofit #email #fundraising in particular. Here's some of what I found.... this thread is for you #fundraisingtwitter... 1/
Online giving was up 21% in 2020 according to @blackbaud's Charitable Giving Report (…) and broke through to be 13% of all giving 2/
Remember that % from online isn't a great way to measure the impact of digital. If a donor gets an email, sells stock w/ @Wealthsimple, moves it into their DAF w/ @VC_Giving & wires it to your bank this 'digital only' experience inspired by your email won't be 'online' 3/

In my communications consulting work, I advise #globaldev organizations to no longer view communications as an “add-on” service department, first beholden to the #fundraising function of an organization. /1
At this point in history, communications departments can and must be developing narrative change strategies that support the vision of the world they and their partners are building. #DevComms /2
In this week of #GivingTuesday, it may appear that #narrativechange work is at odds with proven fundraising practices.… /3

We've been gathering insight this year looking at societal trends of the present and future.

Check our socials every day in December for our #InsightAdventCalendar so you can learn about what is influencing the world around us, helping you identify the opportunities ahead! 🎁
1. The role of social media in #politics has got to the point that if you log onto your favourite social media site and scroll through your newsfeed for two to five minutes, there is a 93% chance you will see at least one political post. (@JCRED_SJU)

@JCRED_SJU 2. The planet could see a greater temperature increase in the next 50 years than it did in the last 6,000 years combined. This could place 1 of every 3 people alive outside the climate niche where humans can thrive. (@propublica)

@jenbrea Hey! So I'm getting to the point where I could write a long paper about potential overlapping connections b/t #Alzheimer's and #MECFS, but I'll summarize a few top trends in this thread! First, I brainstormed often on topic with the late Rob Moir
@jenbrea 2/ Rob’s research (done w/ Rudy Tanzi + Will Eimer at Harvard) forms the core of a potential ongoing paradigm shift in Alzheimer’s - namely that #amyloid beta may be an antimicrobial peptide that forms in response to pathogens in #brain tissue:
@jenbrea 3/ To better understand that research, read this #interview I did with Rob before he passed away last year from glioblastoma. Key to ME/CFS is his work indicates that amyloid may form in response to herpesviruses like HSV1 in the Alzheimer’s brain:…

Good News: The Young Mom is safe and sound.

Even Better News: The powered wheelchair is being delivered NEXT WEEK to the young woman who is a double amputee and has been waiting for a chair from the @YourAlberta & @RajanJSaw office... for an extremely long time.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who have made all this happen. To the @HarvestHillsYYC team of volunteers, @GrannyGTArp and @EveryAlbertan and also @paul_yyc as well! Without all these awesome people...doing what they do...all of this may not have happened! 😊 So thank you!
On another note, I don’t like begging 🥺 but in this case I am. If you can help...please do as all the team @HarvestHillsYYC is looking for is $475.00.

This is for two medium families. If you can donate I am sure ANY AMOUNT is and would be welcome.

"What's happening over in #PresidentialElection2020 A/B testing land" I hear you cry? Well Let me tell you. @JoeBiden tests an attack vs positive piece on his splash page fundraiser. ImageImage
While over on the main site he is testing mobile #optimised #fundraising on the stick bar. Mainly removing options and trying to simplify it. ImageImage
Over in Trump town, he is still optimising the splash donate ask too. Fewer options this time. Kept two from the previous test that must have performed well (meet Trump donate raffle and America Vs Socialists). And added two convention orientated ones into the mix. ImageImageImageImage

Brief #nonprofit thread

So just finished talking with a nonprofit leader. It never ceases to amaze me how pervasive the 'scarcity mindset' is within the sector and how numbing it can be to an organization.
2) It stunts growth. It prevents future planning. It hurts marketing and #fundraising efforts.

It means you're always living in the HERE AND NOW and tomorrow doesn't really exist.
3) Then #charity leaders wonder why when they come to a rainy day, they have no reserves. They have no idea how to move forward. They're stuck in place.
