October 2015: “Analysis of the Value of Celebrity Affiliation to Nonprofit Contributions”

"We find that celebrities also offer a credibility signal to donors, which is especially important for nonprofit organizations."

Using a sample of more than 500 industry-diverse charities with known celebrity affiliations, we find support for the celebrity-lift hypothesis—that celebrity-affiliated nonprofits are associated with increased contributions. We also find that celebrity affiliation has a substitution effect such that fundraising expenses are lower at celebrity-affiliated organizations.

  • Movie stars, musical performers, and other celebrities who are associated with philanthropic causes help increase financial support from the public.
  • We find that celebrities also offer a credibility signal to donors, which is especially important for nonprofit organizations.
  • Celebrities bring attention to charities just as they would a product, creating image-related links on the basis of qualities such as attractiveness and likability, expertise, and trustworthiness
  • A brand that is able to break through the clutter of marketing messages by being associated with a well-known, attractive, and sometimes expert endorser is typically perceived to be more credible and more likable
  • “Both of those aspects — credibility and likeability — add value to a brand, which in turn makes it easier and more likely that consumers would choose the particular brand. We believe it’s a fairly similar process for celebrities and nonprofit organizations, as reflected in donations
  • Athletes, movie stars, and newscasters are associated with the largest increase in public donations.
  • It is difficult for the public to gauge how successful charity organizations are in meeting their stated goals, but celebrity support lends credibility to those organizations
  • Furthermore, a relationship with a celebrity allows nonprofit organizations to allocate more resources to service missions than fundraising campaigns, Harris says
  • Charitable organizations have to spend a lot of time to cultivate the relationship with a celebrity and we think that speaks well of nonprofit managers
  • We hope nonprofit marketing professionals may increase awareness of their organizations through celebrity endorsements.
