Red Cross Leader Describes First-Year Triumphs, Challenges
Date:7/21/2009

tough, the country needs us even more, and we're committed to be at our very best," she said.

Non-profit organizations must continually demonstrate that donations are well spent. "We must be relentless in demonstrating that their hard-earned money is well spent," McGovern reported. She noted that through a strong collective effort, the Red Cross was able to drive down its deficit from $209 million a year ago to $50 million today -- a 75 percent cut and $86 million better than expected.

Fundraising can be a particular challenge during tough economic times. "We fielded a combination of tactics from good old-fashioned community outreach to digital media," the Red Cross leader said. "We learned that the key was to set our sights high and try lots of different approaches", adding that these techniques had yielded $95 million in cash and $15 million in in-kind donations, surpassing the original $100 million goal.

Finally, McGovern stressed the importance of looking ahead while dealing with the daily challenges, recognizing that planning for the future is key. "Cost-consciousness is a critical element for success for non-profits, but it can only take you so far. We all need to ensure that we look toward the future to stay relevant and to grow," she said.
