"The person of the year" since we started the new millennium is "YOU" the consumer... today, there is much more power to a donor/family than before.

Through DAF, donors should be able to give to whatever charity they wish and care for, do it more strategically, get their financial adviser to manage their DAF money, see timely reports, connect with grants recipients... and much more...public charities and commercial DAF should not hold their donors/investors back...

The United Church of Canada Foundation has been doing this for years. It is also helpful for bequests and the receipt of investments as donations. Smaller charities are not always capable of handling securities, so a donor can instruct that the Foundation forward part of the donation on to other charities.

What is this blog all about?

If you're serious about raising money from donors, you need to get serious about donors. More than ever before, donors are insisting that you share power with them, not treating them like passive ATMs. This blog is about the ways you can do that -- and the rewards that await you and your donors when you do.
