That sounds amazing. Have you encountered any challenges with enlisting donor interest?

Thanks Peter- I will look at the resources you suggest!

Hi Luuk,
Thanks for the feedback and question. Yes, I am working on a framework that would help drive these crucial conversations that are otherwise avoided (because they are awkward). The framework is a series of aspirational statements that both donor and organization make publicly to each other. The idea is that they can then be held accountable to each other. I have been doing some research on the best ways to for each side to make this statement. One idea is that a donor provides the Awareness Accord agreement upon making an investment. Similarly, the organization would provide their own Awareness Accord (alongside the regular documents that donors often request such as financials, impact reports, etc.). The goal is that by putting this forward, both sides can begin to generate these conversations.
