Slide 2

Introduction Lake Snell Perry & Associates looked into surveying information and message testing studies happening from 2002 to 2004. The objective is to figure out how to make powerful messages that can have wide request and that propel Americans to effectively bolster philanthropic and advancement help. This presentation is to a great extent taking into account research with “attentive Americans” who are likely voters – not so much “average” Americans. Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 3

Context Studies demonstrate that the economy and employments are the public’s top concerns, while the War in Iraq and terrorism/security are their driving worldwide concerns. Americans feel less secure today. Ladies are especially effected. Worry about America’s picture on the planet – we are seen as a domineering jerk. Trust the US ought to help poor nations, however worried about expense and viability. See beneficent associations are best at giving help. Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 4

Reality Check Americans have a household center – economy, occupations – worldwide issues other than Iraq and terrorism are considerably less important. There is a “Take Care of Home First” mindset among the larger part. Most don\'t need the US to be the main worldwide pioneer – favor joining forces with different nations. Most think US government gives substantially more in compassionate and advancement help than it really does. Numerous are not certain help has been fruitful. They stress over debasement – most uncertainty help makes it to the general population in need. Becoming careful about gathering pledges crusades that play on blame. Most feel they are excessively caught up with, making it impossible to get included in another reason. Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 5

Also a Time of Opportunity Many patterns are meeting up. Numerous comprehend the US can\'t overlook what goes ahead on the planet. More Americans paying consideration on worldwide issues. Americans are stressed over the US picture issue. Security concerns could give a section. Additionally constrained by good, merciful, and religious motivations to help creating nations and individuals in need, especially kids. Most additionally see that philanthropic/improvement help serves our self-enthusiasm by making the world more steady and independent, quieting feelings of disdain toward the US, enhancing worldwide wellbeing, and ensuring the earth. Numerous vibe it is conceivable to have any kind of effect on numerous worldwide issues – most don\'t feel feeble. Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Building Effective Messages

Slide 9

Positive, cheerful dialect Focusing on kids in a constructive manner US included in organizations/coalitions Using the word “together” Teaching essential aptitudes Educating/bringing issues to light around an issue Action now to keep a more concerning issue later Acknowledging Americans as a “caring and humane individuals willing to help the world’s poor” Using words like”effective” and “accountable” Facts from solid associations (CDC, WHO, GAO, UNICEF) Tangible objectives to help Noting that the US as of now has the expertise to tackle an issue and we should do nothing more than motivate it to creating nations Telling examples of overcoming adversity Starting with an individual story and after that rapidly extending to indicate how help at last profited a whole group or even nation Helping people and groups assist themselves With addressinging main drivers like destitution and yearning Focusing on individuals not dollars Quotes from trustworthy sources (Colin Powell for some, Jimmy Carter for others) Talking around a blend of transient and long haul help (individuals see a few issues take more time to address) Positive Language Across message testing studies, numerous methodologies and ideas reliably function admirably. These are: Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 10

Negative Language Concepts that don\'t function admirably: Using the term “foreign aid” or even just “foreign” – which makes it appear to be less important – better to say philanthropic and advancement help. Unequivocally affirming that the US has an ethical “duty” or “obligation” to help poor nations – i.e., most Americans really trust this is genuine however they don\'t care for seeing this announcement in messages (it appears to be reproving) Explaining the US gives less help than different nations (not acceptable) or inferring the US doesn\'t do its offer (illogical). To be sure, there is no worth in playing the numbers amusement. Individuals effectively talk themselves out of their worry or shock at the low sum the US commits to helpful and improvement help. Programs that seem to force US values and society on creating nations – Americans need to be touchy to social standards (e.g., conceptive wellbeing, young ladies/women’s rights). Utilizing pictures of agony kids is seen to be manipulative, blame prompting. Asking for a budgetary gift – better to likewise specify different ways individuals can get included. Over hopeful or sensational dialect –, for example, “ending poverty” which most Americans don\'t accept is conceivable. Attempting to disgrace Americans – inferring they are aloof while individuals in creating nations endure and bite the dust – does not work. The reason: Americans see themselves to be a liberal and minding individuals, not inactive. Likewise, numerous individuals are as of now doing something through their places of worship, schools, and by making gifts to worldwide reasons. Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 11

Message Construct The best messages tend to have these segments: Description of the issue with sound certainties that reflects people’s top qualities (e.g. assisting kids, with enhancinging steadiness, enhancing wellbeing) Solution to issue and US part in that Actions steps somebody can take to help tackle the issue Messages appear to get a positive knock on the off chance that they specify kids , have an objective of independence , use training as the way to taking care of the issue, demonstrate that NGOs are taking a shot at this issue in coalitions or associations , and recognize a scope of activity ventures for people. Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 12

Operational Values – Education and Self-Sufficiency If conceivable, messages paying little respect to theme (e.g.,hunger and destitution, AIDS vagrants, enhancing wellbeing) ought to incorporate components of training and independence. Messages about helping individuals in creating nations help themselves dependably score better on the grounds that independence is the sought objective of all remote help. It is the driving American esteem regarding the matter of philanthropic and advancement help. Instruction that is socially delicate is the means by which Americans want to help poor nations – offering our expertise and innovation to others. The complexity is simply giving cash or sustenance to creating nations which most Americans don\'t bolster (unless it is for calamity alleviation purposes) Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 13

Powerful Themes for Messages The accompanying topics tend to get wide based bolster and open the way to a scope of mediations – both transient and long haul that people in general will bolster: Helping youngsters Reducing appetite Increasing worldwide security (subsequently making the US more secure) Reducing neediness Improving worldwide wellbeing Improving training/schools Increasing independence Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 14

Other Top Themes These subjects additionally score well in surveys however may not prompt such wide based backing on the grounds that: they are new and the general population still needs to find out about them; the general population tends to consider them to be more slender or obliging fleeting intercessions; the general population inclines toward a more extensive degree to remote help; or the general population needs earnestness. Calamity alleviation Improving the lives of ladies and young ladies Addressing AIDS in Africa Helping AIDS vagrants Improving the earth Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Slide 15

Some Messages Need to be Targeted Some subjects function admirably with focused on gatherings of people however put off others. These should be dealt with deliberately, however can be compelling in the correct circumstances: Reproductive wellbeing (preservationists tend to have issues because of fetus removal concerns) Teaching occupation aptitudes (some vibe we will be sending out employments) Refugee help (some reaction because of migration concerns) Explicit references to counteracting terrorism (numerous discover this connection excessively questionable – they say that the “9/11 terrorists were rich and well-educated” and not the sorts of individuals that guide targets. On the other hand, this may chip away at Capitol Hill.) Lake Snell Perry & Associates

Specific Insights into: Enhancing Stability Helping Children Reducing Hunger Improving Global Health

Slide 17

Humanitarian/Development Assistance + Stability Studies demonstrate the public’s top worldwide concerns are at present security related. It takes after that making the US more secure is a top outside approach objective.
