Recurring donations have several advantages for the African American community. Unlike larger organizations with more resources, small nonprofits often struggle to secure funding and may have to cut back on programs or staff if they experience a drop in donations. Recurring donations help to mitigate this risk by providing a reliable source of income that can be used to plan and budget for the future. Recurring donations also help to build long-term relationships between donors and organizations, fostering a sense of trust and commitment. This can be especially important in a community that has historically faced economic challenges and systemic inequality.
