The circle of donations can never be sustainable if not worked properly. One person/organization’s duty does not end on getting the donations and using the money rather it is much about how to respond to the donor after receiving the donation. This post donation attitude of the receiver has a big role to play in the sustainability of the donor.
Here we have enlisted some of the most important points that help your donors to show a consistent attitude.
A small yet crucial thing to keep in your mind. It helps the donors to think of another donation. According to the general public survey, it has been seen that the people who tend to donate more, appreciated the donation seeking blogs or organizations that are more thankful to the donor after receiving the donation. The one who does not make any gratitude to the donors are thought as rude and were not appreciated again. Thanking is also thought to be appreciating and acknowledging the donation receiving.

Our Impact on Pakistani Community
As a non-profit organization, Transparent Hands is currently dealing in a number of surgeries including orthopedic, cardiac, neurology, gynecology and other general surgeries. It’s currently striving to bring full range of these surgical specialties. Transparent Hands also aims to expand to other areas of Pakistan where the poverty stricken community has no means of getting better healthcare facilities. There are small hospitals and clinics which are far away from slum areas. Another main reason is that these people are unable to afford the medical treatment for relief let alone surgical procedure.
Here, the need is to create awareness among our underprivileged people regarding various diseases. They need to know the circumstances of not treating a particular disease and what’d happen if they delay it for some reason. Not only this, people must have knowledge about symptoms of most common diseases including kidney stones, bladder stones, fibroid in women, hernia, and heart defects.
A large number of patients, who came to Transparent Hands in the hope for relief, consisted of children suffering from congenital heart defects. Children from 2 months up to 15 years old were treated in past. These little souls had a hole in their heart which needed to be repaired otherwise it would have resulted in further deterioration of health. All of the families were from other provinces of Pakistan and they had to come to Lahore in search of free and best health care treatment for their little kids. Transparent Hands made sure to provide the best surgical treatment to them free of cost. Not only this, but we also paid for all the postoperative expenses of patients. The mission of Transparent Hands is to give medical relief to many more children, elderly and old people with the help of fundraising. Here at Transparent Hands, all the patients are treated with proper care and love. They are not discriminated at any stage of their treatment.
Updating the Donor:
This is probably the most important thing to keep donors loyal to you. With the time there are now millions of donation receiving organizations and each comes up with a solid reason and a proper ground to provoke the donors to take money out of their pockets. For this reason, most donors tend to look for the most authentic organization to make their donations. However, another important thing for these donation giving authorities is to be updated. They want to have the complete details about every penny they donated to any cause. They also appreciate having an update about the matter on which they made a donation. For instance, if taking part in paying the cost for surgical treatment in Pakistan, they would like to know how the patient is now and what the result of the surgery was.
If an organization is able to deal with the matter effectively, it will have more chances to get the donation next time.
Reasons Why People Make Donations:
Psychological and social-behavioral researchers have found a number of reasons why people donate. Some of which that are important to keep in mind is that;
People think and act from their hearts and not their heads. To get donations, a nonprofit had to work on the emotional aspect of the given matter. Also showing the generosity of the donor will work more than the number in any given case.
A donation is a Personal Act: thus, you must make the appeal in a donor-centric manner. Try to explain the donor about why they should make a donation and why their donation is important to your organization. This can also be summed up in one word called call-to-action.
Giving is an immediate act: make your donor give right here, right now. For this purpose, you have to make sure that you are offering them the opportunity to give the amount they can easily take out of their pocket right at the very moment.
There are a number of reasons that can be polished to make a potential donor make a secure donation and to make such donors be a loyal partner in your social welfare activities you have to look after them even when a specific case is closed. By dealing with these pre and post matter effectively you can have a list of loyal donors at your hand and thus can perform better.
