Fundraising staffing needs - fundraisers to operations staff ratio

  • 1.  Fundraising staffing needs - fundraisers to operations staff ratio

    Posted 4 days ago

    Hello all,

    What's the best practice ratio of frontline fundraisers to back office/support/operations staff?  We are trying to get insight into what needs to happen as we hire more frontline staff (how many ops/support positions are required to help them do their jobs in the most effective way) 
    Also, What positions are emerging in well-run fundraising shops? (e.g., a dedicated business intelligence/decision science role, a VP of prospect management, etc.)

    Thanks,

    Sukesh
