The research project focuses on an analysis of financially successful special fundraising events. The research will examine and identify specific strategies by type of events, organizational structure, and desired outcomes. Fundraising is a critical component of nonprofit organizations. An organization’s efficiency strategies can help or hinder the sustainability of its mission and purpose. There are various approaches for fundraising and also a number of challenges nonprofit organizations encounter as they pursue fundraising initiatives. In nonprofit art organizations, special events are influential instruments identifying resources and supporting the organization’s primary mission. Special event fundraising provides an organization valuable community exposure, capitalizing on a captive audience of arts-interested, potential donors. The research will also examine event processes and practices needed to successfully impact fundraising events. The research includes key elements, including goal setting, planning, event organization, and administration all coordinated to achieve and maximize the event success.

Charitable Fundraising and Smart Giving: How can charities use behavioral science to drive donations?

Thematic category: Metody fundraisingu

Charitable giving is a powerful force for health and happiness. But most people do not give very much, and the rate of private giving in the U.S. barely keeps pace with GDP growth. In addition, most donors make only a minimal effort to research charities before giving, thus missing the chance to support the most “effective” charities (those which help the most people with each dollar they raise). This review summarizes empirical research on techniques that could increase the rates at which people give to charity, with a special focus on techniques that might allow effective charities to leverage their special traits to win support from donors. The review also examines cognitive-scientific explanations behind the effects of certain techniques, points out promising areas for further research, and uses its findings to create a set of strategic recommendations for charitable organizations

That?s why special events can often work so much better for nonprofit organizations than other, less social types of fundraising programs.

Our usual representations of the opposition between the „civilized“ and the „primitive“ derive from willfully ignoring the relationship of distance our social science sets up between the observer and the observed. In fact, the author argues, the relationship between the anthropologist and his object of study is a particular instance of the relationship between knowing and doing, interpreting and using, symbolic mastery and practical mastery—or between logical logic, armed with all the accumulated instruments of objectification, and the universally pre-logical logic of practice.
