There is a Giving Gap™ the Giving Gap is the difference between the giving potential of a donor and the gift that is actually made.
Top 3 reasons for the Giving Gap™
- The Donor is unsure how much he or she can afford to give.
- The Donor doesn't understand all of the ways to give.
- Donations are often made in isolation without taking into account the bigger financial picture.
