A new report by JBWere attempts to estimate the outlook for philanthropy and volunteering in Australia during the unprecedented combination of a major economic downturn and a significant global health crisis.
Many millennials prefer to make their payments on a monthly basis, so how you can you engage younger donors on a day like #GivingTuesday and beyond?
npENGAGE has featured a fantastic article on how to turn a single-time donor from a day like #GivingTuesday into a lifetime donor.
Writer Jenny Toldeo says;
As a millennial, I prefer to pay costs monthly—even if that means spending a little more.
And I’m not alone. 92% of millennials have active service subscriptions.
It’s just more feasible for me to give $20 monthly than it is to make a one-time $200 donation. Yes, you read that right! Understanding a situation like mine is crucial to running a successful sustainer giving program.
One organization broke the cycle. After I made my first gift, our relationship flourished. I’m now a proud lifetime supporter. Why? They followed a strategy I like to call the “Vowel Method.”
The Vowel Method has five elements: Accessible, Educational, Impactful, Open, and You. Let’s take a closer look.
See which countries are the most generous, as the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) World Giving Index reveals where 146 countries rank for three giving areas: donating money, volunteering and helping a stranger.
Now in its ninth year, the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) World Giving Index looks at charitable behaviour around the world and shares insights into the nature of giving and trends in global generosity.
The CAF World Giving Index 2018 is based on data collected over a five year period (2013-2017). It includes results from 146 countries collected throughout 2017. Each country is ranked for three giving behaviours:
So many grants are written and so many are often left unfunded, even the good ones, simply because there is not enough money to be distributed to every good grant.
More and more today, we are also told by philanthropic bodies that they cannot provide feedback due to the sheer volume of proposals they review. So how do you know if what you’re writing fits into the ‘good’ category or if there are substantial improvements to be made. This proves very challenging.
But now, a relatively new organisation called Unfunded List is supporting organisations working for social outcomes by providing ‘thoughtful and candid feedback’ about unfunded proposals.
If your proposal is selected, it is reviewed (for a minimal fee of $100) by an expert in the field and your proposal and associated feedback is added to the Unfunded List website.
