Donor Participation Project

The Donor Participation Project (DPP) convenes fundraising professionals who:

  • Are concerned about the nationwide decline in donor participation (20 million US households lost between 2000-2016).
  • Believe this can be solved by changing our fundraising practices and want to learn from peers who are moving the participation needle.

To that end, we meet monthly for a Lunch Analysis session:

  • A 45-minute meeting that is a part book club, part scholarly discussion, part brainstorming session, and part support group. Each Lunch Analysis covers a specific topic in donor participation and has required reading and discussion.

Here is what we learned in year one of the Donor Participation Project.

Upcoming Sessions

  • 8/17/2022 Lunch Analysis with Debbie Meyers
  • 9/14/2022 Operationalizing DEI in Fundraising: A Practical Conversation
  • 10/12/2022 Lunch Analysis with Julia Campbell
