Monthly Giving and Sustainer Programs

Monthly giving (also known as a recurring donors or sustainers program) has come a long way. Now a centerpiece of many direct-marketing programs, monthly giving provides a reliable, low-cost stream of revenue that sustains ongoing programs. It also increases the annual value (and loyalty!) of low-dollar donors. This is all great news for nonprofits. But what else do we know (or need to know) about online monthly giving?

Cost: $39.00 for members, $59.00 for nonmembers
