85%

According to Double the Donation, 85% of the average nonprofit’s revenue comes from gifts of $1,000 or more. This means high-net-worth individuals or corporations can have a transformational effect on a nonprofit’s mission. Finding, stewarding, and celebrating these powerful community members is an important step in mission fulfillment.
