October 20, 2006, Newsletter Issue #36: Big Gifts Don't Have to be Capital Gifts, and Vice Versa

Tip of the Week

Nonprofit organizations sometimes run capital or endowment campaigns that focus on larger donations. Nevertheless, larger donations do not have to be reserved for such campaigns or glamorous improvements. A large gift that an organization can use just to cover salaries or janitorial services will take a huge burden off a nonprofit's balance sheet anytime.

If you can afford only a small gift, don't feel that you cannot contribute to a capital campaign. Charities value every gift they get, and they will welcome the opportunity to build a longer-term relationship with you. In many cases, you can even donate online, whether it be cash in small amounts, or large.
