As a fundraiser, monitoring for potential lapsed donors is a critical activity within your organization. CharityEngine has created out-of-the-box reporting for LYBUNT (last year but unfortunately not this year) and SYBUNT (some years but unfortunately not this year). These reports are just two in a series of available reports to ensure you have what you need at your finger tips to quickly and easily identify areas of opportunity and further drive your fundraising efforts. Leverage these reports, and others under Fundraising, to assist you in identifying the targeted audience for out reach through development activities.
