Antibodies View Retention As Disruption

The Agitator

There’s little doubt in my mind that, when it comes to ‘retention’, the powers-that-be in most organizations will view any serious efforts to improve donor loyalty and commitment (retention) as disruptive. In turn, they will either deliberately or subconsciously move to subvert any efforts at improvement. All organisms contain antibodies — cells in their immune systems that identify, attack and neutralize foreign objects. The same holds true for nonprofit organisms.

Haiti one year on – the view from an online donor’s doormat

Giving in a Digital World

A year ago this month, along with millions of others world-wide, I donated online in response to the terrible earthquake that hit Haiti. However, rather than chose a single charity out of the wide range running appeals I decided to give £20 to each of the UK’s ten leading relief and development organisations to see just how the experience of being an online donor varied across the different brands. And vary it certainly did.

Why the Washington Post shouldn’t view Facebook as an ATM machine
