    How Travel Planning Efficiency Can Strengthen Fundraising Results

    Travel is still very much up in the air for fundraisers given our ongoing challenges with COVID-19. While some have been cleared to return to this vital function of the job, others continue to be grounded due to health concerns in certain areas. For those able to hit the roads again, the need for the planning and execution of these trips to be seamless may be as important as ever.

    How Travel Planning Efficiency Can Strengthen Fundraising Results

    Over the course of the last year and a half, fundraisers haven’t had the chance to engage major donors with the type of face-to-face interactions either party has come to expect. Consider the new prospects that came into the mix and it all adds up to a great deal of relationships that haven’t been given the quality in-person attention they rightfully deserve.

    Fundraisers eager to make up for lost time may think their best course of action is to dive headfirst back into travel planning. But at what cost? With so many steps to coordinate, travel planning is simply an arduous endeavor that cuts into the time fundraisers should be spending cultivating relationships and driving meaningful outcomes for their organizations.

    Improving workforce efficiencies in this manner is a major element behind the AI-based travel tool, Gravyty GO!, Through its On-Demand Travel Tool in particular, fundraisers can lean on it to handle the coordination and planning of their upcoming trips to ensure they are as fruitful as possible.
