  • Note / to say: the average speed of response to the online donation is less interesting to chart, because every charity will generate an automated reply same-day. Or almost all. What might be interesting (but I’ve not tallied this yet) is which of these were from the charity vs. bank... Then within these, which were welcome-personal as opposed to logistical-thank you... Then which charities followed these up with a more in-depth welcome. \n

  • In the UK, 14 out of 15 charities sent a thank you that made direct reference to the nature of the gift. \nIn Australia, six charities posted out a generic thank you, that was the same or near identical to that of the generic mail donation received.\nIn the USA, whereas only six charities sent proper in mem thank yous, if you didn't get one of those, you didn't get a gift-specific thank you at all! Interestingly, a couple of them for sure received the gift, because they then dropped us into the appeal cycle. \n

  • Do your donors care? (about donor care)
  • “When given the choice, people will always spend time around people they like. When it’s expedient and practical, they’d also rather do business with and buy stuff from people they like. And now, they can.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
  • “Few people would be surprised tolearn that, as a rule, we most prefer tosay yes to the requests of someone we know and like.” - Robert Cialdini
  • % Change in perveived value of brand attributes 2005-09 Young & Rubicam’s BrandAsset Valuator, quoted in Gerzema & D’Antonio - The Power of the Post-Recession Consumer

  • “Between 2005 and 2009 US consumers expressed a nearly fourfold increase in their preference for companies, brands and products that show kindness in both their operations and their encounters with customers. This desire for companies to be more empathetic toward consumers is the biggest shift in any attitude we have ever seen during the BAV survey’s two-decade history” Gerzema & D’Antonio - The Power of the Post-Recession Consumer
