How to Raise
More Money with
Donor-Centered
Fundraising
There are two ways to raise more
money: get more/bigger gifts from the
donors you’ve already got and go find
new donors.
Both of those get incredibly easier
when you’re donor centered.
Being donor centered means you pay
more attention to the donor than
you do to their money.
In other words, you value the
relationship over the donation.
It’s like the goose that laid the
golden egg – take care of the
donor and they’ll keep giving.
When you’re donor centered,
you’ll actually attract more
donors, like moths to a flame.
It seems like more nonprofits would
practice donor-centered fundraising,
yet so few actually do it.
Why is that?
My theory is that they’re too busy
trying to keep their head above water.
Staff are trying to just get through the
day. They’re overworked and
underpaid, and have more on their
plate than they can...
And most people, when faced with
that, just slug away at the “to do” list
trying to get things done instead of
stopping to...
What if you only did the things on
your list that deepened
relationships with your donors?
What would change?
