Oh, the controversy! For the last several weeks, Turnkey’s sister blog, Nonprofit Tools, has been tossing questions to the blogosphere about incentive program products found in fundraising events.
We launched this expedition because we know that when it comes to fundraiser gift programs, there are two distinct philosophies. (Read my Why a Nonprofit Incentive Program Debate? post for philosophy summary.)
The last question has launched, and it could be said to be our most controversial. We ask: Is it more effective to offer a fundraiser several gift choices, or a limited number of incentive products? We liken the comparison to offering the fundraiser a shopping expedition vs. the choice of only a few meaningful items.
For those folks like me who build programs for nonprofits every day, the answer to THIS question in many ways represents the program’s fundamental philosophy. Please let me know what you think.
