Fundraising v Fundcatching

September 21, 2015 at 11:12 am 2 comments

I had never heard the term fundcatching until a couple of years ago, had you?

My definition:

  • The act of making charitable donations without being asked.
  • Charitable donations given in response to the news, social media, a disaster, event or publicity.
  • Charitable contributions given on a regularly basis without stopping or stewardship.

So my question is, once we “catch” these gifts (because we have all received them) as professional fundraisers who are donor-centric in our work – what do we do?

To be continued…your thoughts welcome.
