P2P Predictions: Subscription Models

by Sean Staggs
As we jump into 2023, and start looking towards what is in store for the new year, growing sustained giving, or recurring giving, can be a great way for non-profit organizations to increase their revenue and support their ongoing efforts. And the on-going rise in popularity of the subscription service model in the overall economy will continue to shape nonprofit revenue portfolios.

Possibly prompted by the pandemic, the world has seen a huge spike in the availability of, and reliance on, subscription services. From home delivery services, streaming sites, socks, razors, and even premium features for automobiles including Mercedes, businesses know that a person’s lifetime value to the company increases when they can get someone into a subscription service with them.

In the nonprofit world, that translates to sustained giving, or recurring giving. My prediction is that the growing consumer acceptance & familiarity with the subscription model will lead to a continued increase in sustainer giving revenue by non-profits, as well as a more focused effort on this revenue stream by nonprofits. Sustainer giving as a revenue channel for nonprofits has been on the rise:

If your nonprofit would like to ride the wave & grow this revenue stream, the key is to make sustained giving easy and rewarding for donors to support your organization on an ongoing basis. By doing so, you can build a stable source of funding that can help your organization achieve its goals and make a lasting impact.

Onward to 2023
