Make 2022 Your Best Year Ever With Instil

Prioritizing donor stewardship now goes a long way toward ensuring a successful Year-End and building a strong foundation for future fundraising.


As Year-End draws near, we know that your to-do list probably seems endless and days go by in the blink of an eye. You’re preparing annual reports, sending donor thank you notes, proposing new budgets, orchestrating board meetings, and getting ready for the biggest giving day of the year. It’s a busy and stressful, but still incredibly exciting time of year for nonprofits.

In the midst of the December hustle and bustle, it can be tempting to put off donor stewardship and retention efforts until January. However, prioritizing relationship-building with your biggest supporters now goes a long way toward ensuring a successful End-of-Year and building a strong foundation for next year’s fundraising.

Shrinking donor retention rates cost nonprofits millions over time, but for many nonprofit fundraisers, accessing the holistic information needed to start a conversation with a donor who hasn’t yet given for the year (such as their lifetime giving summary, or whether they’ve recently supported the organization in other ways, such as volunteering) is an uphill battle with technology built to manage data and transactions, but not relationships. Interaction and conversation with supporters is easily one of the most critical touchpoints for your nonprofit’s stewardship and retention efforts, especially given that only around 40% of donors come back year over year.

Often, this crucial work gets done in Excel and Google Sheets or platforms built decades ago, which doesn’t make it very easy. In fact, there are very few tasks related to the day-to-day operation of a nonprofit’s donor relations that are made easier with these software platforms.

In today’s digital age, nonprofits deserve technology built to reflect the way you work and prioritize the things most important to you.
Instil reimagines the way that nonprofit technology can look and function for modern relationship management, and was built to be that solution for your nonprofit. Our holistic platform can help you and your team:


  • Optimize interactions and build strong relationships with donors, with easy access to a 360-degree view of a donor’s impact on your organization, including time, money, and network
  • Cultivate lasting engagement at scale, with solutions for easily managing and stewarding relationships with your entire supporter community
  • Access donor information and stewardship tools wherever you are, on a completely mobile-first platform
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We’re actively iterating new features every day. Everything we do is designed to bring clarity, confidence, and connection to your work.
If you, like so many of the nonprofits we know, are struggling with systems that aren’t helping you authentically connect and interact with your supporters, let’s make 2022 the year that your work is supported and empowered by technology instead of hindered by it.

When you’re ready, book 15 or 30 minutes with us and let’s get the conversation started now. We want to hear about your frustrations, learn what your dream nonprofit technology looks like, and work together to change the world. Let’s crush 2022!
