Will Donors Like You When They’re Angry?

by Kevin Peters

When Bruce Banner gets angry, he changes. There is a flash in his eye, and then he turns into the Incredible Hulk, a big green ball of fury. In recent years, when some citizens get angry, they’ve also been flashing green... in the form of donation dollars. Thus the phrase “rage donating” has been born. As described by GQ, it is “the act of feverishly throwing money at a cause you believe in because you just don’t know what the hell else to do. (Perhaps you’ve also met its cousins, the guilt-donation and the despair-donation.)” We all know that emotions can fuel donations. We’ve previously talked about the power of those ASPCA Sarah McLachlan commercials and how to properly and effectively use emotions in fundraising campaigns. But appeals for sympathy and empathy are different than appeals to anger.
