This webinar, adapted from a well-received 2018 NJHSA Conference presentation, will describe the findings of a recent PhD study, the first to investigate the motivations of charitable giving to Jewish human service organizations. The practical and theoretical relevance of this research provides insights into donor charitable behaviors. Organizations that possess and understand the motivations of their current and potential donors can create and adapt resources and capabilities to capture and sustain a competitive advantage over similar organizations. The presenters will share strategies for donor engagement to maximize impact, and link back to five themes that motivate philanthropists to give.
