Check out research on women’s giving from the  Women’s Philanthropy Institute. No surprise, women give differently than men. We know that. But wait till you read “Women Give 2012.” Very useful information for your fundraising program.

Sad faces, tough stories…the truth…. That’s what works with donors. Happy faces suggest you don’t need my money! Read Jeff Brooks, 07-25-11, “Sad faces make better fundraising.” Read Jeff’s 08-22-12 blog, “Don’t hide the rough stuff from your donors.”
