Who makes charitable gifts? Individuals make up 90% of charitable gifts, and nearly half of the dollars given to higher education. Recent studies show that the top 1% of donors give as much as 70% of the money, and the top 10% of donors may give as much as 95%.
Prospect Types Those who see a need and respond without being asked. Those who respond when simply told of a need. Those who will respond when persuaded. Those who may or may not respond, even when heavily encouraged. The “Inert Fifth” – Nothing could ever get them to give.
Kinds of Gifts Made by Individuals Regular Gifts –Made repeatedly and at regular intervals. –Timing relates largely to the calendar. –Usually the smallest gifts the individual will make. –Generally raised through Speculative Fund Raising, which focuses on asking for gifts—based on the speculation that if you ask enough people for gifts, a sufficient number will respond favorably to make the effort worthwhile. –Examples include: direct mail appeals, phonathons, telethons.
Kinds of Gifts Made by Individuals Special Gifts –Made to help meet a special need. –Usually made to an institution that the giver also supports with regular gifts. –The need of the institution receiving the gifts influences their timing. –Increased investment on preparation of the donor for the request. –Examples include: campaign / project fund raising. –Typically 5 to 10 times larger than regular gifts.
Kinds of Gifts Made by Individuals Ultimate Gifts –Largest philanthropic commitment the giver can make. –Factors in the giver’s life most influence the timing. –Generally raised through Nurturing Fund Raising, which focuses on the prospective donor’s sense of commitment to the institution over time. –Examples include: trust or bequest. –Typically 1,000 to 10,000 times larger than regular gifts and funds usually go toward endowment.
Summary The more significant the gift, the more personalized the cultivation and stewardship. The larger the gift, the longer it is likely to take; the higher the expectations will be for stewardship. It is all about the relationship building with people who can make a difference at UCR.
