“This is not the first time that nonprofit
  organizations and fundraisers have had to
  adapt to new technologies. The radio,
  television, newspapers, telephones, fax
  machine, and direct mail have all affected
  how we raise money. Some of the new
  methods that have evolved are more
  successful than others, and not all of
  them have been used with equal success
  by all nonprofits.”

     - Ted Hart and Michael Johnston in
    Fundraising on the Internet

2/12/13                  emilydavisconsulting.com   29

  6. We are influenced in these generations by key activities/shared reference points – world wars, 9/11, women ’s movement TRADITIONALISTS : This is the generation that really were responsible for creating the nonprofit sector and charitable giving in a formalized way in the US. Catalyst for NPOs Motivations: Leaving a legacy; Security defined as safety, money; Loyalty; Their health; God, duty and country; Education; Being useful; Pride; Fear Marketing: Conservative imagery; Legacy; Family; Healthy couples; Won ’t spend a lot; Well-known brands Management: Top down, respect for authority, separate home and work, conformist, value of work vs. personal meaning, hardworking, loyal, thrifty BOOMERS : Formalized sector, Appreciate hierarchy & inclusion, All about respect, Self-improvement, Strong work ethic, Optimistic & idealistic, Desire flexibility, Workaholic, Appreciate recognition Martin Luther King Jr., Gloria Steinam, The Beatles, TV, Vietnam War, War Protests appreciate hierarchy and inclusion; want to be recognized for their contributions to the sector both in the past and NOW. Want to be asked questions about their work in the sector, want the next generation to learn from them This generation was truly responsible for formalizing and implementing what the previous generation had created– learning by doing, improvisation – hasn ’t helped with transferring the knowledge and skills of the sector. Can be resentment from these folks who have worked SO hard for the sector and see the younger generations doing things in a more sustainable way. Motivations: Money; Status; Toys; Fear of failure; Guilt; Transformation; Making a Difference; Accomplishments; Being best in class; Having choices; Sharing shows up as teamwork; Respect; Service; Process Messaging: Work hard and deserve it; Keeping up with the Jones ’; Didn’t get it as a kid so I am taking care of myself; Living the good life defined by materialism Imagery: Healthy 2/12/13 emilydavisconsulting.com Fundraising & the Next Generation
