  • All of the stuff that you had before should be in your notes:
    Organizations operate with different philosophies and activities - education, health, self governance, democracy

    However, it seems those which have a direct human appeal, simple- clear logic, tangible outputs like children’s education, horticulture, immunization have better chances (eg. our project on education and immunization gets more donation as compared to our project on Building self reliant rural communities in India, and Increase profits for 3500 poor farmers in India)
    Selection Criterion should also include organization’s ability to report on selected projects frequently and easily
  • Reduce text
  • Note that not every online portal has challenges – so you have emphasize that to the audience
  • Could you maybe add a few points on online donor segmentation if you can or talk about the different segments

    4. 4. Connecting with Donors Online • Give specific measurable goals • Transparent costing • Simple language • Avoid jargon • Supplement with clear pictures showing human emotion and activity
    5. 5. Advantages of Online Portals •Provides credibility to donors on behalf of organization (due diligence/reference check visits) •Allows to reconnect with individual well- wishers, friends, ex- volunteers especially those who cannot make large donations but can make small regular donations •Unknown new donors also come who otherwise would not know you •Regularity a key feature •Individuals, unlike institutional donors, do not change with themes and sectoral preferences
    6. 6. •They may also endorse your organization to corporate or other bulk donors •Create additional exciting/fun opportunities for fund raise e.g. competitions/registries •Some Online portals such as GG have simple feedback mechanism where you do not have to track exactly a penny- but report on outputs or outcomes •However, there are others who make it quite complicated where even very small donations such as $ 10 have to be tracked and reported on Advantages &-------
    7. 7. Reporting, Donor Feedback • Regularity • Reporting calendar • Personalized reports • A human story • Try variety- short videos, letters • Some other online portals do not have such flexibility in reporting •Updates do lead to more donations- Communication is key as most donors are strangers, plus create a feel good factor
    8. 8. How?? • Weaving in reporting requirements within the core structure of organization will ensure regularity and consistency • Calendar is still important • Set up systems to review quality, style and content of feedback • Senior leadership writing in also adds to bringing the donor closer • Acknowledge the Donor
    9. 9. Social Media and Staying Connected • Global Giving Challenges are a great opportunity to boost funds • Thank Your donors after the challenge irrespective of the result • Amplify it with more exposure on social media • Social media allows you to stay connected with your donors Visibility on social media may not lead to more funds but it helps
    10. 10. Donor Stewardship • Donors prefer human contact • One person managing donor communications • Strategy for donor acknowledgement when there are many donors
    11. 11. Donor Segmentation • Communication strategies will differ for regular donors, corporate donors etc • Online donor segmentation strategy required as well
    12. 12. •Activities which are less donor friendly take a back seat •Risk of giving only simple success stories – takes away the challenges and failures of this work of social change Challenges
    13. 13. •Online Portals are not just useful for fundraising but also maintaining relationships with new and existing donors Conclusion
