Make a New Year’s Resolution That Sticks

New year, new you, right? Making a New Year’s resolution is a time-honored tradition. It’s a way of looking to the year ahead with hope and optimism. Turning the page for a better tomorrow.

Year after year, the most popular resolutions include living healthier, saving money, quitting bad habits, learning something new, and spending more time with loved ones.

Resolutions for your nonprofit aren’t that different from your personal ones. You want your organization to be more robust and secure. You want to learn new methods and improve best practices. You want to be more efficient at your work so you can spend more time with friends and family. But, so often, we tackle our resolution with vigor in January, only to let it slip through our fingers by February.

Network for Good can help your nonprofit stick to your resolution this year with a donor management system.

Approximately 60 percent of us make New Year’s resolutions, but only eight percent of us succeed.

So, how do you get to be part of that eight percent and keep your resolution?

Think of your New Year’s resolution like a fundraising campaign. You wouldn’t launch a campaign without setting goals, right? Well, it’s the same thing here. Set SMART goals—specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-bound—to increase your chances of success.

Still, no matter how clear your goals are, one of the most common reasons why resolutions fail is when we try to do it alone. Sharing your resolution with others adds an element of accountability and community. It also provides support when you have questions or concerns.

Change can be scary. The status quo is familiar, which can be comforting even when we know it’s not what’s best for us. Commit to your resolution along with a partner to improve your success rate.

You’ve got the motivation. Let Network for Good be your partner. Once you sign up with us, your personal Success Manager will be with you for one-on-one support for your first 90 days. And even after you’re confident in your use of your new donor management system, the entire Success team is standing by to help you make your resolution stick throughout the year.

Want to have a successful 2019? Let us show you how.
