231: Stewarding Scholarship Donors

Recorded On: 05/18/2021


When donors support student scholarships and financial aid—either by creating a new endowed fund or giving to an existing fund—it makes a powerful statement about their interests and priorities. The way institutions steward those donors afterward can have a big impact on their willingness to provide additional support in the future. Prompt gift acknowledgements, consistent communication, and thoughtful engagement will go a long way toward creating positive experiences and building lasting relationships for many years to come.
