In the Donor's Mind: The Science of Giving
What does the evidence-based research tell us about how to motivate donors? Speaker Daniel J. Mansoor will go beyond anecdotes, gut feelings, and traditions to identify what behavioral economists and psychologists know about what truly inspires altruism.
Mansoor is Chief Philanthropy Officer of the United Way of Greater Cleveland and has three decades of experience in philanthropy and fundraising -- a subject he also teaches as an adjunct faculty member at the Mandel School. He has served as consultant and philanthropy advisor at GoodWorks, a firm he founded in 1995. Mansoor was senior vice president at Brandeis University and began his fundraising career at his alma mater, Cornell University, where he received his bachelor's degree in Operations Research and his Master's in Business Administration.
