Most nonprofits in the United States promote giving societies.

Whether it’s asking donors to increase their gift to a certain level in order to join a “giving circle” or inviting older donors to join their “planned giving society,” the use of giving societies is widespread.

But do giving societies really work?

Join Nic Prenger and Leslie Ulrich for a deep discussion on whether giving societies work, and if so, how nonprofits should use them. Nic and Leslie bring experience and strong opinions from years of experience leading nonprofit fundraising programs.
