In this episode…

There's nothing wrong with showing donors the accomplishments of your nonprofit organization before making an ask. However, when you do, the relationship becomes about you and your organization's needs rather than the donor's. According to Jay Weisman, a better approach is donor-centric philanthropy.

Donor-centric philanthropy is about the impact that donors and supporters make through their support of your organization. This perspective makes the donor the hero and your organization a conduit through which they make that impact. And that is only the beginning of helping donors get more joy from their giving.

In this episode of the Philanthropy212 Podcast, Penny Cowden hosts Jay Weisman, and they discuss donor-centric philanthropy: what it entails and how to build donor-centric relationships as the means to help donors get more joy from their giving. Stay tuned.
