  • 54. Adrian Sargent & Elaine Jay, 2004 “Long term donors are significantly more likely... to offeradditional gifts in response to emergency appeals, to volunteer, to upgrade their gift levels, to lobby for the organisation, toactively seek out other donors... to buy from a catalogue, and to promote the organisation to friends...”
  • 55. George Smith, 1996“...For we need to find more ways for people to give, build more products around the process, stop taking people for granted. Which, ironically and tragically, is what we do with so much of that tradecraft.”
  • 56. Ken Burnett, 1991 “...an approach to the marketing of a cause that centres on the unique and special relationship between a nonprofit and eachsupporter. Its overriding consideration is to care for and developthat bond and to do nothing that might damage or jeopardize it. Every activity is therefore geared toward making sure donorsknow they are important, valued, and considered, which has the effect of maximzing funds per donor in the long term.”
