Everything Research Can Tell Us About Legacy Giving in 2018
So, Legacy Voice commissioned a major literature review (a world’s first actually), and asked some of the leading academics in fundraising to pull together everything that research can tell us about legacy giving.
The result is an in depth report, compiled from more than 150 papers across fundraising, marketing, sociology, psychology and behavioural economics.
Please note: this particular report can be downloaded directly from Legacy Voice’s website.
Our outstanding fundraising project looks at how and under what circumstances, organisations develop exceptional fundraising. We explore the practices of successful leaders, concluding that what makes leaders exceptional is their ability to think differently from their peers. We explore the thinking processes of some of the sector’s most innovative and successful fundraisers and provide a series of case studies of cutting edge professional practice.

And should a thank-you be designed differently for donors at different stages in their relationship?
Do certain types of thank-you allow donors to experience higher levels of well being and what does this mean for subsequent behaviour?
Our latest report has the answers.

Measuring donor loyalty: key reasons why Net Promoter Score (NPS) is not the way
for fundraisers working in nonprofit organizations, argued that the measure is fundamentally

approach and offered an alternative way of measuring future loyalty and value.
