According to published studies, the nonprofit industry is in a trust crisis. Fewer than one in every five Americans “highly trust” charities. Only 52% have any faith nonprofits will “do what is right.” Even worse is that Americans place more trust in for-profit companies (54%) than in nonprofits!

Research further shows that those who consider trust important give more generously and in greater number than those who do not. Of donors who give regularly, 75% say they seek information about a nonprofit's impact. And while the extent varies by generation, donors -- particularly Millennials who now lead in number -- are tracking the results of programs they support.

Fyi: Impact differs from outcomes.


Outcomes are changes that occur because of your program.

Impact is what happens because of the outcomes.

The impact of lives changed for the better is not only social, but in many ways economic.

Millennials donate biggest, averaging $13,654 annually -- more than double the $6,200 averages for Gen Xers and Baby Boomers.

  3. Produce an assortment of fundraising assets. The PROI Visualizing Impact Collection, customized for your program, features your choice of eye-catching cost-benefit charts, social media impact-graphics, stories that sell, and high-ROI impact reports, making donation worthiness visibly clear.
