December can be one of the most important and productive months for your fundraising efforts. One way to increase your bottom line during the these winter months is by focusing donor development efforts on your legion of 'social fundraisers'. Also known as your 'evangelists', these are individuals who not only believe in your cause but also become a nexus of social activity, both online and offline, to promote your organization and its fundraising activities.

In addition to utilizing social fundraisers, it is important to have a strategic fundraising plan for the month of December to ensure that your outreach calls-to-action are targeting the right individuals with the right messages.  30% of all online gifts are given in December, and 10% of all donations come in the last three days of the calendar year, so it is critical that your fund development strategy positions your organization to maximize the fundraising potential from your donor audience.
