Many organizations claim to be practicing relationship fundraising, but in reality there is little agreement about what that actually means and what would constitute a relationship approach. 
In this session Adrian Sargeant, perhaps the world’s foremost academic expert on fundraising, takes apart the notion of relationship fundraising and explores the social psychology of how human beings form relationships.  He’ll report on latest findings from the Hartsook Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at the University of Plymouth on the relational approach to fundraising from recent testing in the US and UK, including:
  • the results achieved 
  • how behavior was influenced
  • the difference made on how people experienced the relationship, and 
  • how good people felt about their giving
