Successful fundraisers all have one thing in common- their donors trust them, and their organization enough to make a monetary donation. Trust is key in any relationship, both personal and professional, and this also includes the relationship between a donor and fundraiser. A donor’s confidence in you and your cause are especially important in our information-rich society because donors are looking for more and more information about the services and spending habits of their favorite charities.
Building trust with your donors is a fairly straightforward process. It requires you to be open about how your organization/charity operates. But, trust also builds on itself as you develop a genuine and long-term relationship with donors.
