The Donor Fatigue Myth


GivingTuesday research suggests that people are very motivated to give to many different causes. The key right now, as at any time, is ensure your relationship with supporters is experiential rather than transactional. People want lots of ways to show support for the causes they care about, and on GivingTuesday, the vast majority of donors also take some other action. Providing multiple touch points, messages and opportunities to show support helps make you relevant and inspiring. "Donor fatigue" is a function of the quality of the message and engagement rather than a question of frequency. Think about how your organization is providing supporters with an opportunity to exercise their generosity and agency to make positive change - that approach will help focus engagement that is motivating.
