Program Title:
      "The Seven Faces of Philanthropy"

How well do you know your donors and what appeals to them? Sheridan Joslin will discuss the Seven Faces of Philanthropy, a 1994 social science study conducted by Russ Alan Prince and Karen Maru File. In this study, Prince and File analyzed the motivations of individuals relative to their interest and support of nonprofit organizations. They categorized individuals into 7 distinct groups or faces. Each group was defined by the attitudes and beliefs that motivate individuals to act on behalf of and in support a nonprofit. The study defines the expectations of each group related to communication, involvement, decision-making, and recognition.
