Building trust in philanthropy is one of the key components when creating relationships with your donors and staff that aren’t transactional but transformational.
But, the problem is many nonprofits either don’t know how to build trust or aren't building the adequate amount of trust needed to see increased donations, staff performance, and retention.
In this episode of the Philanthropy212 Podcast, host Penny Cowden and Paul Kaminski, the Executive Director of the Long Beach City College Foundation, talk about building trust in philanthropy. They discuss the different trust-based relationships in philanthropy, how to develop trust in these relationships, and what to expect from building trusting relationships.
