More evidence that your donors are moving online, this from the Pew Internet Project: Older adults and internet use. Key findings:
- 53% of Americans age 65 and older use the internet or email
- But of those 76 and older, internet adoption is only 34%
It's likely your 65-and-up donors are even more online than these figures show. Donors as a group index high for income, education, and technology use. If anyone is telling you there's no need to pay attention to your website's ability to process gifts or your ability to email your supporters, they're more wrong about that every day.
