In the fundraising process, many nonprofit organizations will create a tiered structure of giving. This awards donors with titles for their contributions, which are labeled publicly. Such labels may be found in programs, listed on venue walls for the public to see, on websites and other public spaces.
Examples of a tiered structure of giving may include titles that ascend or descend in a logical order. Example:
Copper Donors$10 to $100
Silver Donors$101 to $300
Gold Donors$301 to $500
Platinum Donors$501 to $1,000
Diamond Circle$1,001 to $5,000 or more
In this exercise, students create a mock tiered structure of giving for a nonprofit business concept they devise.
