  1. The “new normal” – low unemployment, stagnant wages and austere government budgets. For social service groups in a competitive space, the challenges to make the case and make budgets are great.

    • Yikes. Eli, I hate to think of these as the new normal. But I think you’re right.

      I’ll dig into these in the next week or so in another post.

      Thanks for your input!

  2. Major gifts – time, staff, doing the most urgent things

    Digital fundraising – having staff innovative and passionate enough to take it on. Time.

    Integrated marketing – clear strategic plan helps put gas in this car.

    • Great points, Travis. These are the kinds of challenges I think most orgs struggle with. Don’t you agree?

      I’ll address your challenges fully in a post next week!
