Some organizations have implemented a special monthly donor concierge. It offers a fantastic opportunity for nonprofits to build relationships with their monthly givers. Nothing is a more powerful motivator than speaking to donors and finding out why they give monthly.
There have been several discussions about subscription giving and sustainers. In my view, some aspects absolutely apply, but not all of them.
You know I’m always on the lookout for new statistics and trends. I couldn’t do my job without it and I wish there were a lot more available on recurring giving.
