  9. 9. Giving Options: Provide a reference point <ul><li>Donation options describe what a specific donation amount will provide. .The KEY here is to show the impact each donation has, linking that donation to something tangible and meaningful. </li></ul><ul><li>Include donation options of all levels so everyone feels they can contribute:  </li></ul><ul><li>Donation options must be at least $10, </li></ul><ul><li>Projects without one small donation option will not be approved. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Which of these two projects would you support? <ul><ul><li>$35 can provide 3 nutritious meals to 126 orphans and poor Tibetan refugee students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$60 buys a cow to begin a dairy business </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$90 will provide clean water for 50 villages </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$200 will provide livestock for 50 families </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$500 will buy 6500 acres of land </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$10 can provide nutrition </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$100 can provide books for the unemployed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$1000 will buy dinner for a village for a month </li></ul></ul>Critique: There is a good spread of donation options, with a good amount of options under $100.  Each option is very specific so the donor knows exactly what the money represents. Critique: There is a huge gap between the donation options- you want to appeal to ALL kinds of donors.  The average donation is often $25, try to keep a variety of options below $100.  Be specific in your donation options--not vague like “provide nutrition.”
