To help your donors give in an impactful way, you need to understand who they are and what they’re interested in. According to Sybil Ackerman-Munson—a consultant who helps donors make a difference with their donations to charities and worthy causes—there are three common types of donors: sustainer, campaigner, and launcher donors.
The sustainer donor cares about your organization, the work you’re doing and wants to continue to support that work.
