Charity Success

We measure two key charity fundraising success metrics:


  • Average Raised: Our objective is to see the amount raised per charity (in each event) grow steadily on average each year. This average includes the results of new and long-term partners dividing the total raised by the number of participating charities in the event year to year.
  • Goal Achieved: We track the percentage of our charity partners who achieve or come close to the fundraising goals they set with us before each campaign. We ask, "Are only a few big-hitters doing well, or is a growing number of charities finding success?"

Both metrics point to the impact of our fundraising program (including training, campaign and event coaching, and eco-system) on our charity partners.
