Abstract:
High quality relationships between philanthropic organizations and their donors are central to the success of development and fund raising practices. The purpose of this study was to examine what components in a philanthropic relationship influence "relationship building" between a philanthropic organization and its donor base. A philanthropic program supporting the fine arts in higher education was used as the basis for a case study. Theories relating to philanthropy and social psychology were used to guide the research. Eight donors were interviewed and qualitative research methods were employed to analyze the data. Results indicated that creatively communicating the results of a donor's involvement, building a social and/or advocacy reference group, and utilizing dynamic leaders in donor relations valuably contribute to building high quality philanthropic relationships.
