No More Donor Fatigue

What if giving to your favorite charity was automatic and convenient?

Do you want to give more to charity but are worried about the extra expense?

Are you suffering from donor fatigue?

Whether you work at a nonprofit or a supporter of one, the overwhelming requests for donations may unintentionally lead usually generous people to shut down on giving.

Donor fatigue is when supporters reduce or stop giving to various causes. The reason for this can vary from person to person. An individual may be overwhelmed with requests for money, or he may feel his donation is not making a difference. And while nonprofits should always look for ways to engage and thank their supporters, the app Xspero is helping nonprofits combat donor fatigue.

Xspero is an innovative, social-giving network that brings together several participants to benefit one another. The app sells digital gift cards redeemable at local merchants in the area. Every time someone purchases an Xspero digital gift card, 20 percent goes to the nonprofit they choose in the app, at no additional cost! When users redeem the certificate, they receive the full amount paid, dollar-for-dollar.

Xspero is already making a difference in Cumberland County. Since launching in 2019, users of the app have earned more than $15,000 for nonprofits throughout the area, through their normal spending.

Not only can Xspero enhance a nonprofit’s revenue source, but it can become a sustainable way for them to continue their mission. If 100 supporters are persuaded to spend $50 a month in the app on purchases they already intended to make (think pizza, coffee, shoes, etc.), that organization will raise an additional $12,000 a year. There is never a limit for what a nonprofit can achieve on the Xspero network.

If you are a supporter looking to help nonprofits, at no additional cost to you, download the Xspero app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Check out the list of local merchants you can shop at—supporting both your favorite charity and small businesses.
