Tips for Philanthropy During the Pandemic

Many churches and nonprofits are working tirelessly to continue the connection they have with their donors and the community. Below are some items to keep in mind:

  • A clear mission statement or vision for the future is critical - What does the future look like beyond the pandemic and what can your church or nonprofit do to engage donors in planning for that time? Receiving feedback regarding future plans increases individuals’ engagement when some may feel disconnected.

  • Enlisting and maintaining strong leadership is important to the church or nonprofit's future well-being - Introduce your leaders to donors through various communication vehicles and share what they are working on right now to ensure a strong future.

  • Transparency regarding financials is always key to building donor confidence - If your church or nonprofit is struggling financially, let donors know and share how they can help. Make sure to celebrate if your organization is doing well financially. It speaks to the enthusiasm and passion that donors have to continue their financial support.

  • Communication should include the preceding information often and in as many different ways as possible - Now is a great time to work on signing donors up for online giving and connecting to your social media. This will have a great benefit now and into the future.
