Informed Giving: Information Donors Want and How Nonprofits Can Provide It
Studies shows that one in three donors conduct research before giving to a nonprofit and that most donors analyze a nonprofit’s performance and impact before donating.
However, most research does not address donors’ preferences between different types and sources of information, which data is most useful, and the frequency that donors seek information. This report delves into these research areas and uses the conclusions to provide actionable steps for both donors and nonprofits. Informed Giving: Information Donors Want and How Nonprofits Can Provide It generates new insights into the types of additional information donors could leverage to make informed giving and how this information impacts nonprofits.
