Kivi's Nonprofit Communications Blog

A full week ago — two weeks ahead of Giving Tuesday — the Fossey Fund launched their Gorilla Game Changer campaign asking for help to “change the game” for people and gorillas in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. I’m writing this on Tuesday, November 26, which is one week before Giving Tuesday 2019. I’m getting lots of “Save the Date” email messages from nonprofits. Some of them include soft asks about giving now, ahead of Tuesday.

A fundraising tip: Choose hope over hopeless

Nonprofit Marketing Blog

Soon after the genocide in Rwanda, researcher Paul Slovic asked some research subjects whether they were willing to give money to deliver desperately needed water to a refugee camp in Zaire (now Congo) to save 4,500 lives. Some of the people were told the refugee camp had 11,000 people in it. Others were told it had 100,000 people in it. Either way, the number of lives that could be saved was 4,500. But guess what? People gave less when they thought the camp was bigger.

The first, from the Alden Keene Cause Marketing Database, is sponsored by The New Yorker magazine.
