Effectively Using Giving Societies and Donor Clubs

Throughout ECCC’s memberships, there are many models of donor clubs (Including some centered on alumni.) Here’s some outside perspective on how these groups can be effectively developed and sustained:

There are many different types of giving societies that a non-profit can set up, based on its needs.  Some of the most common types of groups include:

– Major Donor Groups:  Donor clubs focused on major givers

– Mid-Level Donor Groups:  Donor clubs focused on mid-level givers

– Minor Donor Groups:  Donor clubs focused on small-dollar ($5, $25, $100, etc.) level supporters

– Annual Giving Clubs:  Groups comprised of those who make a qualifying-level donation each and every year

– Monthly Giving Clubs:  Giving societies centered on those who sign-up for monthly (recurring) credit card giving

– Legacy Societies:  Donor club for those who have pledged a bequest or planned gift to the non-profit

– Young Professionals Groups:  Focused on those under a certain age who have given a certain amount to the organization

– Affinity Groups:  Donor clubs focused on supporters who share one or more “affinities” or traits, such as geographical region, occupation, age, hobby, etc.
