In a survey of Nonprofit organizations* respondents reported:
Only 43% of donors made repeat gifts in the following year.
Also, in our experience, less than 30% of volunteers return to serve year over year.
Fundraising effectiveness and volunteer operations success over the long term depends on nurturing relationships with these and other Stakeholders to keep them coming back year after year. Nonprofits are under pressure to improve their Stakeholders’ experiences in several critical areas including:
However, many Nonprofits rely on an array of standalone technical Solutions that do not allow them to provide the best experience for Stakeholders.
Affnetz™ provides an affordable, integrated SaaS (Software as a Service) Platform that handles all your critical processes.
Nonprofits can save time and money while delivering a superior experience for Stakeholders.

Affnetz™ supports collaboration in multiple ways.
For example, the affnetz™ Intranet and Project Management module provides a collaboration Platform that your Stakeholders such as Donors, Volunteers, Board of Directors, Core Beneficiaries, and staff can use as a knowledge base, share files, and coordinate activities.
Another example is the affnetz™ social media dashboard. It enables your Stakeholders to build and leverage close professional relationships with other Stakeholders and event attendees. Stakeholders can create a post, share an update or comment on an existing update/post.
Research shows Nonprofit chapters often collaborate for two reasons:
First, it is an opportunity to reduce costs on things such as real estate, IT, Software, CMS, CRM, programs, and fees.
Second, some Nonprofits are exploring options for down-sizing or collaborating with other local, national, or international chapters of your Nonprofit or any other organization.
Also, Nonprofits collaborate with other organizations such as Chambers and Businesses to promote the Nonprofit’s Mission.
Your Nonprofit and other organizations that are using affnetz™ have automatic compatibility for Inter-organizational sharing of data, projects, committees, and events.
The affnetz™ Platform helps in cost savings, efficiency, better sponsor relationships, and new revenue generation from stakeholders such as Donors, Volunteers, Board of Directors, and in some cases from the Nonprofit’s core beneficiaries, event sponsors, and advertisers.
All modules can be securely integrated with a signed agreement between your Nonprofit and any other chapters, organizations using the affnetz™ Solution.
All affnetz™ modules can be securely integrated, and the data flows seamlessly and securely between your Nonprofit and any other chapters of your Nonprofit or other organizations using the affnetz™ Solution. Signed agreements must be in place.
For Donors: affnetz™ can support increased engagement with your organization. Frequent communication with donors can reduce attrition and reinforce their commitment to the organization’s Mission.

Affnetz™ provides these important stakeholders with tools to increase the value of their contributions. It increases the “stickiness,” thus enhancing their commitments, service, and volunteer efforts. Stakeholders are reluctant to leave because it means giving up valuable benefits the Platform offers, including losing interaction opportunities and accumulated data.
The affnetz™ SaaS Solution provides multiple benefits.
Stakeholders can cite as proof of a positive ROI and increased opportunity to promote the Nonprofit’s Mission.
Stakeholders sharing social media updates about their specialized area of work, and community engagement help them become brand ambassadors for your Nonprofit.
