In this article, we will discuss the benefits of recurring donations software and how Salesforce can help your nonprofit organisation thrive during these difficult times.

The Challenge for nonprofits during times of hardship

Non-profit organisations face several challenges during times of hardship. One of the most pressing issues is maintaining or increasing their funding levels. This can be difficult in tough economic times, as potential donors may have less money to give away.


  • In the 2008 financial crisis, charities in the UK saw an 11% decrease in the total value of donations as people donated in smaller sums and with less frequency.

Non-profits also need to be especially vigilant in order to keep up with the competition, as other charities may be able to offer more rewards, such as regular updates or branded merchandise. Non-profits also have to remember that during economic hardships, like recessions, the need for their services and support can drastically increase as the need for their support does not go away.


There is an expectation for non-profit organisations to provide their critical services and support during hard times but on a decreased budget than in previous years. As the cost of living rises to try and combat the worsening recession, it can negatively impact non-profit events, which are a vital fundraising tactic for many non-profits. As the cost of venue hire, branded merchandise and travel expenses become inaccessible, this can significantly negatively impact fundraising review.

How Can Recurring Donations Help?

Recurring donations are a vital source of funding for non-profit organisations throughout the year but even more so during recessions or times when traditional fundraising methods are limited. On average, a donor who sets up recurring donations gives 42% more per year than a donor who gives a one-time gift.

With such a difference between one-off and recurring donations as well as the looming recession, recurring donations will become even more integral to the survival of organisations. Luckily, Salesforce NPSP has a solution to help you survive the recession and build for the future.
