We’ve got some year-end stats now for Connections in 2011. And, the results are pretty amazing.
It was clearly our best year yet. This was on the back of our single-largest concert ever: “The Concert for AMK,” last June. That one show, by itself, surpassed our fundraising for every other single year in our history. Pretty dang amazing.
This first graph shows our all-time funds raised over time.
As of year-end, we’ve raised $180, 547!!
This graph shows the funds raised, per-year:
As you can see, 2011 blew the roof off of every other fundraising year we’ve ever had. The “Concert for AMK” was. of course, the thing that more than doubled our fundraising over every previous year.
However! When you factor out the “AMK Show,” 2011 was still our second largest fundraising years ever!!
Taking out that show, for an apples-to-apples comparison with other years, not only was 2011 our second largest fundraising year, but it was only $350 from being number one!!
So, it was an incredible year, no matter how you run the numbers.
Finally, a breakdown of the funds raised, per beneficiary. Our two primary beneficiaries are UMCOR, and “Imagine No Malaria.” (Follow the links to learn more about each). The “Other”category is the “Concert for AMK.”
Connections’ 2012 Spring schedule is now available at our website. At all our Spring shows, we’re rolling out our new show: “Superhits of the 70s, Part II.”
