This is THE Answer…

Community Donors

The Donor Motivation Program just celebrated 25 years of serving leading charities around North America!

The focus of the program remains the same from its founding, which is to solve the three biggest planned giving challenges:

  1. Make the complex topic of planned giving easier to understand.
  2. Motivate donor action by making planned giving less confusing about what is in it for the donor.
  3. Move planned giving forward for charities with limited resources.

Scott Keffer, the founder of The Donor Motivation Program, moved six different times growing up. As a result, specific neighborhoods don’t hold a huge place in his heart. Specific people do – friends, neighbors, classmates, but not neighborhoods.

Scott’s wife, Beth, on the other hand, grew up in the same small town area all her life. She, and her parents, watched it slowly fade.

The two of them raised their two children these last thirty-plus years in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Now, Scott knows what people mean when they talk about the community they grew up in and how they want to give back. The answer to our community’s problems lies right here in our community. The federal government is not the answer… it can’t be.

Remind your donors that THEY are a part of the solution when they give time and money to charities in our community. Donors AND charities are the answer to our community’s biggest problems.
