Why You May Need a Database Cleanup
The quality of data in your CRM directly impacts your ability to engage donors, make informed decisions, ensure compliance, and demonstrate the impact of your work. Before you consider whether you need a database cleanup, ask these key questions:
Is my data trustworthy?
Non-profit data can come from many sources. If you are aggregating information from online and offline systems into your CRM without a reliable process, you may benefit from a data cleanup to resolve inconsistent or duplicate records.
Is my data complete?
Non-profits often deal with broken automations and workflows that can lead to errors and incomplete records. If you're not capturing complete records at the time of data input, a database assessment and cleanup can help.
Is my data accessible?
Manual processes and incomplete records can make building meaningful relationships with donors and partners difficult. If donor outreach is challenging with your current database setup, consider investing in a cleanup consultant or service.
Do I have consent to use the data?
Accurately collecting and tracking consent from donors in your non-profit CRM is a legal obligation and a critical aspect of maintaining trust, protecting data, and ensuring ethical fundraising practices. If you are unsure about how you are collecting and managing consent and data security, a database assessment and cleanup is an excellent investment.
