A Mystery Donor's Look at the Online Giving Experience
The business model of the not-for-profit sector relies on meaningfully engaging donors by providing a simple and streamlined giving experience.
We know that user experience is key to customer acquisition and retention, and the not-for-profit sector is no different. As technology exponentially advances, so do user expectations.
The opportunities for donor engagement include improvements to the email subscription process, better targeted EDMs, more compelling communication around the reasons to give and reducing frictions in the donor experience.
Organisations need to refine and optimise their communications practices so generate better relationships with donors and encourage recurrent donations.
