Relationships are built on trust, and when people trust your message, they’re more likely to engage with your nonprofit. You build trust when people feel a connection to your message, and when they understand the work that you do helps accomplish their own goals. Personalizing your messages is a key tenet of proper donor management and an important function for every organization to master.
The end-of-year season is upon us, and we’ve got a few fundraising software tips to help you end 2021 strong and get a jump start on those 2022 activities. You’ll find all these tips (and more) in our End of Year Strategy Guide for 2021, which is available as a free download now!

Engage and change the world. That’s Salsa’s vision for social good organizations and the reason we get so excited when they execute successful advocacy campaigns using our software. In this article, we’re taking a closer look at a few of the early planning stages in any advocacy campaign - identifying the target who can bring about the change you desire and the people who influence that target. This is called “mapping your advocacy campaign” because we are developing a visual map of the people who will help us and how they relate to one another.
It’s not enough that we go directly to the target and lay out our case. Sometimes the person we need to convince isn’t going to listen to just one singular voice. We need to point our advocacy at the people who influence our target too. Their voices will lend credibility to our campaign because they are trusted friends and colleagues of our target and their opinions matter.
Remember, you can download the advocacy campaign planning worksheets in the appendix of Salsa’s Complete Guide to Digital Nonprofit Advocacy Campaigns and follow along with this post while you create your own advocacy campaign maps.
