In an environment where time and money are limited resources for school advancement programs, many are under increasing pressure to show the effectiveness of their efforts. Demonstrating ROI (i.e., “return on investment”) can help. Whether you’re looking to measure the return of a phonathon program, a direct mail appeal, an individual gift officer, a giving day, or even an entire annual or capital campaign, doing so will allow your program to optimize existing strategies and make the case for further investment down the road.
