Click Here to Donate: A New Survey Reveals the State of Online Educational Fundraising in 2009
Thompson, Chris; Weiner, Robert L.
CURRENTS, v35 n7 p48-49 Sep 2009
A survey of online fundraising by the "Chronicle of Philanthropy" found that 192 nonprofit organizations raised $1.1 billion online in 2007 and $1.4 billion in 2008. Given this trend, to what extent are educational institutions using and succeeding with online fundraising? Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) explored this question with a survey conducted in March and April 2009. CASE last examined online giving with a survey on e-mail solicitation in November 2005. That survey had 107 respondents, with only 15 percent reporting that they had raised more than $100,000 online and nearly one-third raising less than $1,000. In contrast, the 2009 survey garnered 562 responses, which is a record number of responses for a recent CASE topical survey. The authors discuss the findings of the survey and present a compilation of respondents' advice to help maximize benefits and avoid pitfalls in online fundraising. (Contains 3 charts.)
