Here’s what some Benchmarking participants have to say…

,,

Pareto’s Benchmarking gives an objective perspective and analysis of our Individual Giving fundraising. This helps us improve our program’s performance and has been invaluable in managing our strategy and bringing our boards and executive along on our development journey.

,,

Pareto Benchmarking has been invaluable in checking strategy and educating my Executive Teams and Boards on the role and outcomes of fundraising. Even when moving to an organisation where fundraising performance was not at its best, Benchmarking helped set the goals, develop the strategy and move the program forward.

,,

I said I’d stay for an hour but I stayed for three….. the absolute best use of my limited time this year!

,,

Pareto’s Benchmarking is a brilliant source of reliable data for understanding underlying trends across fundraising and the charity sector. For ‘Gifts in Wills’, it provides great insights which can be invaluable for influencing planning decisions. The more charities that participate in it, the more accurately it reflects the sector.

,,

Sean Triner’s insights on donors and trends have been a great help for me coming fresh into the sector. Sean makes the presentations extremely funny and relevant. I don’t think I have had a training or educational session that was so engaging.

,,

Before we had Benchmarking, we had no idea where how we rated amongst other charities. Having data-driven analysis, a full report and presentation taken by the charismatic Fiona McPhee means we now have insight into how we’re doing, where we can improve and the key areas that donors are interested in and supporting. It’s like this for all of us, who has the time to focus on big-picture analysis when we know it’s the one thing that’s really worthwhile doing? Benchmarking does it for us, and we’re so much better off being a part of this.

,,

Pareto Benchmarking gives us invaluable data insights so we can truly understand our strengths and weaknesses. The report is a key tool for developing our strategy, planning and forecasting. Plus it helps educate committees and board members – so it’s a bit of a bible for us in that regard.

,,

Regardless of whether you’re a small or big charity, Pareto Benchmarking is one of the best investments a charity can make. Every fundraiser I know is busy – Benchmarking clearly identifies the areas that need your attention now. A year later it identifies what’s next.

,,

If it’s worth us investing millions in fundraising and donors, then it’s worth us paying a tiny fraction of that to know how we compare to other charities in the marketplace.

,,

After joining Benchmarking at a Basic Level, we quickly knew CCQ could benefit from the Superior Level. The ability to take a top line view, and then dissect our program, identifying areas of strength and opportunities was useful in educating our organisation and providing insight to drive our decision making.

,,

We’ve received substantial value from our involvement in Pareto Benchmarking. As a small charity it’s been critical in helping us to devise the right strategy and to sell it to the board.

,,

Pareto Fundraising is an indispensable strategic partner for any organisation who want to kick goals in the NFP market. The value starts in the data, but it’s their intelligent strategic insight and advice, that takes it to another level. Strategic growth pathways suddenly become apparent and attainable.
