Results From Our ‘How Are You Sleeping? Survey’ | Bridge 2012

Man having nightmareIt doesn’t matter what area of fundraising your responsibility lies, fundraising means making sure many elements of a project happen at the right time and in the right manner.

Whether it’s your online fundraising campaign working to support your direct mail campaign delivery time, your data being lean and mean to elicit a solid response while eliminating printing and postage expense or making sure the arrival of your package is in sync with global events and messaging – it can all cause a person to lose sleep. So at the Bridge Conference 2012, we thought we’d conduct a fun survey to see how everyone is sleeping when they are thinking about all the areas of their fundraising.

On average, approximately one-third of all respondents are Sleeping Like a Baby in all areas of their fundraising efforts.  However, that means that the majority are suffering from mild to severe sleep deprivation.

Here are the full results:
