Special Giving 101
Mid Level Giving
Individual donors giving $500 - $1,999 annually.

2,600 donors with an average gift size of $218.

Mid Level Donors contribute $1.4 million to our
$15 million budget, making up almost
10% of UGM's total revenue.
Mid Level donors are different than Annual Donors or Major Gift Donors.
So we need to treat them differently.

Getting to know the
We love...

We do not
care for...
of the Mid Level Donor
Sophisticated mail with lots of graphs, charts and intellectual content.
Talking to you on the phone and building a relationship with a member of the development team.
Investing in a specific project.
Being thanked and appreciated.
Pre-authorized payment plans
Plaques & trinkets
Meeting face to face
Accolades for our gifts
We love what UGM is doing.
We appreciate that we are a part of a "team" of donors, volunteers and staff that make UGM programs possible.
We are excellent Planned Giving prospects.
Face to face meetings can easily make us feel pressured, and many of us will never make the time to visit UGM.
We give based on our own personal calendars (financial and otherwise), not yours.
Some of us are good Major Gifts prospects.
Some of us are stretching to be Mid Level donors, and others are giving well below our capacity.
A Hybrid Creature!
