Why the Stakeholder Engagement Survey?
MissionBox is interested in how your nonprofit is engaging with critical stakeholders: Major Donors, Board Members/Trustees, Volunteers, Staff, Coalition Partners, Advocates, Service Recipients and more.
What does engagement mean? It means connecting ― regularly and confidentially communicating with both the heart and mind of your constituents and stakeholders, making it easy for different stakeholder groups to learn, connect, interact and contribute. Your constituents are your most likely funders and volunteers. Engagement for clients mean helping them to contribute in a meaningful way to their own goal planning and case management. It also means helping them mitigate isolation through building safe and related communities.
Engagement does not mean “chasing” stakeholders with emails, invitations, surveys, stories, planning and governance documents ― did you know emails sent by nonprofits to their members of their stakeholder groups have a 37% open rate and only 4.7% of attachment to their emails are opened. So … you may think your blasts of communication are creating a connection, but they may not. For instance, nonprofits lose 57 out of 100 major donors, each year. The reason? Major donors report a lack of understanding, connection and engagement in the nonprofit.

The Survey Question
Do you feel that all your stakeholder groups are fully engaged with your nonprofit, including major donors, board members, clients and staff/volunteers?
Answer Option #1: Yes
“Yes” means that you rarely lose major donors, board members/volunteers or staff, coalitions of programs easily work together to achieve mission goals and your clients are empowered to participate in their own goal setting/case planning from intake through post-discharge
Answer Option #2: No
“No” means it is sometimes difficult to retain major funders and always a challenge to increase engagement with board members and to retain good volunteers and staff. Coalition progress, documentation or impact could be improved. You may also have some issues with your clients fully participating throughout the entire continuum of case planning and care.
Please answer yes or no in the box below. When you do so, you will be prompted to log in as a member or create an account with your email.
