Donors Use giveGreater.org to Learn about Local Organizations
Next Online Giving Campaign Set for October 2-3
In a recent donor survey, 80% of Community Foundation for
Greater New Haven donors reported they do research about an organization before they give. Of that number, 60% report that they find information on giveGreater.org
. And, there is a steady and significant increase in overall traffic to the giveGreater.org site – in 2012 there were 25,000 visits by nearly 15,000 individuals representing a 35% increase compared to the same time period in 2011. giveGreater.org saw a 65% percent increase in new visitors during 2012, illustrating one of the site’s key benefits to local nonprofits—providing a platform that draws new donors and attention to issues and opportunities facing our community. The site has certainly grown to be a unique knowledge asset for the region.
