A fundraiser's guide to new year's resolutions and giving in 2024

Happy New Year! As the calendar turns, the new year brings the spirit of change in the form of New Year's Resolutions. It's not just a time for personal transformations; it's a time for charities to inspire purpose and philanthropy. How can you capitalise on this unique season to elevate donor giving in 2024?


Align with Aspirations

New Year's resolutions often revolve around personal growth, health, and social impact. Position your charity as a catalyst for fulfilling these aspirations. Craft campaigns that resonate with common resolutions emphasising how supporting your cause aligns with donors' desires for positive change.

Personalised Campaigns for Personal Goals

Recognise the diversity of resolutions and tailor your campaigns accordingly. Whether it's fitness goals, learning ambitions, or community involvement, show donors how your charity can be integral to their personal journey. Create micro-campaigns that speak directly to specific resolutions.

Transparency Breeds Trust

The start of the year is an opportune time to reinforce transparency. Share success stories and updates on the previous year's achievements and showcase the tangible impact of donations. Transparency builds trust, and trust leads to sustained support.

Example: "Reflecting on 2023: Your generosity empowered communities. Here's a glimpse of the lives we changed last year."

Resolutions Meet Milestones

Encourage donors to set philanthropic milestones as part of their resolutions. Make giving a tangible and achievable goal, breaking down larger contributions into smaller, manageable increments. This supports your cause consistently and reinforces donors' commitment to their resolutions.

Example: "Resolution Tracker: Make a monthly impact with us. Set your giving goals and watch as your contributions create lasting change throughout the year."

Engage through Education

Educate your audience on the impact of consistent, long-term support. Emphasise how resolutions to 'give back' can be a sustainable commitment, making a lasting difference. Provide resources and insights on the various ways individuals can contribute beyond financial donations.

Make 2024 a year of transformative impact—one resolution at a time.
