We are excited to share this event, hosted by NPQ. Please get in touch with NPQ directly with any questions. 

Delighting the donor is not always best. Yes, we said it.  And yes, we know it’s considered blasphemy in traditional fundraising. Join us for this conversation where we’ll unpack the legacy of donor centricity and its effect on today’s nonprofit organizations working toward systemic change.

In this session, featuring Bethany Maki of Progressive Multiplier and a panel of leaders across the direct service and direct action spectrum, we’ll discuss:

  • How organizations that work within current power systems and those trying to shift those systems offer a different value proposition to donors
  • How donor motivation and “passing the mic” struggle to mix; how deep base building and fundraising similarly struggle to mix
  • How 501c legal structures exacerbate the value proposition/donor motivation alignment divide between direct service and direct action groups
  • What we can do about all of this to better resource groups whether they are providing direct service, direct action or both
