[SOLO] How to Turn Giving Tuesday Donors Into Long-Term Supporters
How did Giving Tuesday go for you? I have seen nonprofits spend so much time this year working on their campaigns, creating buzz and excitement, thinking of ways to bring in new donors and get supporters excited before year-end.
But what happens after the donation comes in?
What’s the plan to keep these new donors and bring them into the fold long term, after November 29th?
Let’s talk about donor psychology. We know what donors want.
The National Donor Commitment Study by Donor Voice tell us that donors give again and again to nonprofits where:
- The organization is perceived to be effective
- The donor knows what to expect with each interaction
- The donor receives a timely thank you
- There are Opportunities to make views known
- Donor feels like they are part of an important cause
- Donor feels that their involvement is appreciate
- Donor receives info showing who is being helped
What’s your plan to give this, and even more, to your new donors?
What should nonprofits do after #GivingTuesday to continue the momentum and to keep the donors in the fold?
In this episode, I give you 10 ideas for cultivating these generous people and creating a long-term relationship with them.
