Time Frames for Giving

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the importance of timing or time frames in developing coherent strategic giving. It explains that the timing of giving is inextricably connected to the value proposition, the vehicle through which giving will take place, the style of the donor, and the theory of change that is pursued. This chapter also discusses the idea of discounting, donors' definition of the time dimension in giving, and the cy pres doctrine.

Keywords: time frames; strategic giving; value proposition; theory of change; discounting; cy pres doctrine
