BOCA RATON Fla., Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Despite the economic hardship brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, philanthropic giving has increased substantially nationwide. At issue, however, is the competition among nonprofits for charitable campaigns and the development of meaningful connections with donors.

A team of researchers, including Siri Terjesen, Ph.D., of Florida Atlantic University, says nonprofits need to implement several key strategies to successfully reach prospective donors during the pandemic. The strategies must envision and seize on bold new opportunities and emphasize empathy, solidarity and hope.
