The greatest opportunity for fundraising is always from individuals, who can make their decisions in a personal and immediate way. This workshop will explore the motivations of donors, the why of giving, in a time when increased systems and technology tends to make many fundraising methods feel impersonal and demanding, and when a changing economy makes people think about their giving in different ways. This will be balanced with an overview of the traditional gift pyramid approach, understanding the methods that work best for each level of giving, and ways to encourage donors to give more.
