A piece on NPR suggested that consumers are getting more comfortable with their financial position. They are willing to invest in purchases that they had previously postponed. Does that mean that donors are willing to make long term commitments to campaigns that are seen a viable and necessary? What are you seeing within your social sector enterprises? Are funders returning? Are they willing to discuss multiple year commitments?
I am seeing some great leadership giving taking place. I am also witness to organizations being more purposeful when they design a request or submit a proposal. Donors are no longer a limitless resource.
