Padres Pedal was interested in learning what our participants want to know about how fundraising money is used. We asked a variety of different questions, addressing different aspects of donating. We learned that, while reasons for donating may differ, the majority of our survey participants wanted to hear about how their donations were used. In fact, when we asked respondents to rate how important transparency was when choosing to participate in fundraising, nearly 60% of those surveyed said transparency was very important to them.

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to get that transparency when they donate. When we asked survey participants to rank their knowledge of where previous donations have gone, only 35.6% of those surveyed said they felt very knowledgeable, while 14.6% of those surveyed said they weren’t knowledgeable at all. Lack of information can deter people from donating, and 61.5% of survey participants said they were more likely to give when they could track how their donation makes an impact. Moreover, an impressive 73.6% of respondents agreed that they were more likely to give to a charity based on results and facts. It’s clear that for most people, knowing how their donations are being used to help is important to them.
