Most gift officers are accustomed to being measured. Each year they likely have metrics and goals such as dollars raised, gifts solicited and secured, and number of visits. However, while organizations like to use these metrics to evaluate their performance, they are not inspiring and do not instill and sustain the behaviors that a gift officer needs to be successful year after year.
While placing emphasis on outcome-focused metrics are important, it’s important for gift officers to hold themselves accountable using behavioral-focused metrics. These types of metrics will bring out the best in gift officers and will lead to greater success!
