Missionary Fundraising: How To Raise Money To Support Your Ministry

Missionary Fundraising: How To Raise Money To Support Your Ministry

I had a month to raise $3,500 for my first mission trip in college, and I found myself torn between polar emotions: thrilled to make a difference through medical care and simultaneously scared to ask others for support. I was excited about a cause that others were unaware of and less concerned about.

Instead, I quickly learned that fundraising could be the most encouraging way to kick off the long, difficult mission experience that included living on a boat on the Amazon River. But when the project became a connected team effort, my community pulled together to it possible.

I discovered that people support and rally around causes that they feel involved. They become emotionally invested in work when they believe they play an indispensable part. From this experience, I learned to directly involve my supporters through an intentional perspective, a clear plan, and the right tools. You can do it, also! Here’s a few missionary fundraising ideas to help you get started:

Stories are your best friend for missionary fundraising. Stories communicate the why behind your mission project. Why it is worthwhile, why you have committed to it, and why your donors will choose to be involved alongside you.

In my support letter, I told a story about the people I was going to work alongside, how they started taking an old river boat full of medical professionals to villages that were only accessible by water. I also explained how my own background led to an opportunity to be a part of this work, and the potential impact the entire team will make.

Being a storyteller is not as daunting as it’s often seems. At its core, storytelling is simply the explanation of a change that is happening or happened. Stories have three parts: an unmet need in the beginning, the struggle to meet this need, and the end results.

  • Your involvement in the mission work is a story.
  • The entire mission project is a story.
  • Your project will create new stories.
  • Our minds (and hearts) become engaged and invested in good stories. We crave good stories, and we want to be a part of good stories. Your unique position is that you can offer potential donors to join in on your story, and makes a lasting impact along the way.

    Here are three ways I learned to incorporate stories into missionary fundraising:

  • Stories can be about the people, places, and the needs that will be met. These are the kind stories people want to hear – the stories that will inspire them to donate to your work.
  • Stories about the mission work as it’s happening. My supporters feel connected and involved when I take the time to keep them in the loop on the field.
  • Stories about the end impact from the trip or project. Donors are like investors in a cause, they need to see that they made a difference.
  • Raising support as a missionary is similar to being your own nonprofit marketing and fundraising department, and the most successful nonprofits are intentional to develop and share stories. The processes that these organizations use easily cross over to missionary fundraising.

    During my entire mission project, from the beginning of fundraising to the last report letter and speech in front of a group of supporters, there was a clear overarching story—I was joining a team of native medical professionals to help provide healthcare for hundreds of villagers. Then there were countless smaller stories inside of the big story.

    My donors became my support partners as we worked toward the overarching goal. In missionary fundraising, it was the small stories that helped my donors connect with the larger story. By telling both the big story and the smaller, detailed stories, my fundraising needs were met and my supporters become part of an exciting story.

    You now have a story for your missionary fundraising campaign. The purpose of a good story is to inspire people to some kind of action. Your fundraising plan is how you spread awareness of your story, find donors, and meet your fundraising goals.

    Potential donors go through similar decision making processes as they decide whether or not to contribute to your work. Think about a game of connect the dots. Your task is to make the “dots” clear and easily connectable.

    The “dots” that donors are trying to connect:

  • What is the main problem to be fixed? There are two problems for you to clearly pinpoint—the root problem that your mission work is geared toward solving, and your lack of funds. Be clear about your main mission project goals.
  • What are the solutions to these problems? Introduce your solution to each problem, and the action or resources needed to meet these goals.
  • Is this worth my time and resources? Help your potential donors become active donors by providing the information and background needed so they eagerly move forward with a decision. Your stories create this emotional engagement.
  • Did I make the correct choice and will I donate again? Follow through with updates about the impact your donors are making through your mission work.
  • In “Why I Fundraise for Project AWARE,” Lauren engaged her readers in her personal, relatable story about littering, and about her new perspective of marine debris as a scuba diver. She provided a picture of trash in the ocean, outlines the negative impact on marine life, and shares her vision for a cleaner, safer future.

    To be effective, your plan should answer these questions in a way that connects with your audiences. But in order to spread your story and reach your donors, your plan also needs a platform and concrete action steps.

    First, consider the features you need in order to complete your project.

  • You have a story to tell.
  • Security for your donors financial information.
  • A simple way for your donors to give to your mission work.
  • A easy process for you to quickly update all of your donors on your progress.
  • Also, think about how much time you have to invest in the setup and maintenance. Will the platform take extra time to figure out? If you run into any issues, will you have access to prompt help?

    Our goal is to support you by doing the nitty-gritty work of so that you can focus on your mission projects!

    Look at platforms that allows you to easily share your story, securely collect donations, post written or video updates, recognize your donors and track your progress. Well designed platforms like our CauseVox fundraising feature are made especially for easy use.

    Send letters or emails about your project to friends and family, with your story and a clear invitation to action. You have stronger credibility with the people who already know you. Even if they cannot financially support you, they can recommend you to other contacts who are interested in the kind of mission work that you are doing.

    In each mission project I have been a part of, the majority of my fundraising came from personal connections and networking. It is likely that yours will also.

    Doing something interesting gives people something to talk about and share. MaryKelli found a connection with an audience of dedicated pet owners by offering them a service as she raised support. Her post was shared by caring animal lovers in her Facebook community more than 30 times and she exceeded her goal in a few days.

    Her donors were excited to share pictures of their pets and spread the word about her work.

    Gratitude for donors, I learned through my first missionary fundraising journey, is one of the strongest ways to build connection. Donors contribute to projects when they want to make a tangible difference, and updates show that impact. In my reports now, I combine stories of the changes happening and my own gratitude for each donor making these things possible.

  • Highlight the current impact and share your vision for meeting the end goal. Dylan was excited about the 22 bikes that were funded, and then he told a story about a boy who would be able to safely attend school, if the last 8 bikes are funded.
  • Celebrate your supporters, and what they made possible. One of our CauseVox users did this in their final report update, You ALL Did it!, by attributing the success of their campaign to their donors.
  • Using video in your updates is easier than ever, and it is one of the most effective ways to communicate emotions and engaging stories.
  • This missionary’s fundraising video includes footage of the location and people he serves and stories behind his mission project. He clearly presents needs and several ways that supporters can join in his work, and ends with a clear call to action.

    This Starter’s Guide to video storytelling outlines the how-to’s for using videos to share your stories.

    As you incorporate these ideas into your missionary fundraising plan and overarching mission story, I hope you are also encouraged by support of your donor community as they rally around you.

    We built our CauseVox fundraising platform around helping you share your story and reach your fundraising goals. Take a 60 second tour of how it works or request a demo. We are excited to help you launch a successful mission project.

    McCarter Presents Online Festival of “The Work of Adrienne Kennedy”; Round House Theatre’s “He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box” Begins Series

    McCarter Presents Online Festival of “The Work of Adrienne Kennedy”; Round House Theatre’s “He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box” Begins Series

    “HE BROUGHT HER HEART BACK IN A BOX”: Round House Theatre, in association with McCarter Theatre Center, is presenting a prerecorded video of Adrienne Kennedy’s “He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box.” Directed by Nicole A. Watson, the video will be available online through February 28, 2021. Above, Kay (Maya Jackson, left) and Chris (Michael Sweeney Hammond) exchange letters that reveal disturbing family histories.

    By Donald H. Sanborn III

    McCarter is partnering with the Round House Theatre (which is in Bethesda, Maryland) to present an online festival, The Work of Adrienne Kennedy: Inspiration and Influence. The four-part series debuted Saturday, with Kennedy’s one-act play He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box.

    In a press release, McCarter’s Artistic Director Sarah Rasmussen praises Kennedy as “an African American woman … who broke convention in the face of traditional barriers that prevented a much-deserved spotlight.” Round House Theatre’s Artistic Director Ryan Rilette adds that Kennedy’s plays are “beautiful, poetic conversations on race and power that are just as necessary now as they were fifty years ago.”

    Kennedy has won multiple Obie Awards, including one for Lifetime Achievement (2008). She has been commissioned by companies such as the Public Theater and the Mark Taper Forum. In 2018 she was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame. McCarter’s press release notes that her plays are “taught in colleges throughout the country, in Europe, India, and Africa.”

    He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box depicts a young couple separated by disparate racial backgrounds, as well as distinct physical locations. Dual train rides become journeys in which each discovers the other’s troublesome past.

    The play had its world premiere at Theater for a New Audience in 2018. Round House Theatre’s 2020 video production is staged by Nicole A. Watson; the director of photography is Maboud Ebrahimzadeh.

    Watson’s direction gives the production the look of a staged reading. The characters, Kay and Chris, are on a bare stage, placed behind music stands. Round House Artistic Assistant Agyeiwaa Asante reads the stage directions, which establish the setting: “Montefiore, Georgia. June 1941.” The play begins in a “boarding school for colored.” A pair of hands is seen holding a model of the school building.

    Kay is a 17-year-old student at the school. She is portrayed by Maya Jackson, whose performance blends a sweet earnestness with quiet but probing intensity. As the play opens, Kay is watching the school play, Christopher Marlowe’s The Massacre at Paris, from the top of a stairwell.

    Asante continues to read the stage directions. “The door of the storeroom opens, revealing the interior: clusters of panoramic photos … as well as piles of old books, large ‘white/colored’ signs, old desks, a radio, and two train cars: one designed for white people, one a Jim Crow car.”

    Visual effects designer Kelly Coburn deftly compiles these images into a rapidly flickering collage, which has the look of a vintage film. Darron L. West’s sound design blends foreboding original music with period recordings.

    “Barely visible is … a replica of Montefliore, Georgia,” Asante adds. “Emphasized on the far left of the replica is the red brick train station.” Kay holds a toy train car in her hands, while Chris holds a model of the station.

    Kennedy’s script is layered and intricate. Watson’s staging reflects this, aided by Coburn’s effects. Maps and pages of books are superimposed over the characters. This is an astute visual exploration of one of the play’s themes: the extent to which the words and schemes of our ancestors become an indelible part of our existence.

    When Kay is not in school she lives with her grandmother, in a house that has been bought for them by the family for whom the grandmother works as a servant. Kay’s father was a white author. Her mother, who was African American, reportedly shot herself in the head when Kay was a baby.

    Chris, who is the same age as Kay, works in a building next to the school’s storeroom. We learn that his mother has just died. He also reveals that he wants to be an actor, and he is about to leave for New York. He is given a role in Noel Coward’s operetta Bitter Sweet; he already is somewhat familiar with the show, as he and Kay happen to have attended the same screening of the film version, though their seats were segregated.

    Michael Sweeney Hammond’s portrayal of Chris infuses the character with a sturdy, debonair demeanor. Hammond’s performance mixes haunted introspection with an inescapable air of superiority befitting Chris’s privileged background. Hammond is haughty and slightly menacing in his dual role as Harrison.

    The script states that Kay and Chris “have known each other all their lives.” Before Chris departs for New York, and Kay leaves for Atlanta University, Chris proposes; Kay accepts. Chris promises to write to her. A plot element from Bitter Sweet influences their plans, as they dream of moving to Paris.

    Chris and Kay write to each other, but their letters are scarcely romantic. Instead, both characters disseminate details of their disturbing family history. What emerges is a fraught duet containing parallel monologues. We learn that when Chris was a boy he accompanied his father on a trip to Berlin, where the Germans admired America’s methods of segregation. We also catch hints that Kay’s mother’s death may have been a murder rather than a suicide.

    It is this latter revelation that gives the play its title (which echoes a plot point in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs). Kay writes about a rumor that her father returned from a trip to Cincinnati with her mother’s heart in a box.

    This is another theme that is astutely developed by the staging. As we hear Kay’s dialogue, we remember the image of the model train in her hand, and realize that the trains are boxes that, metaphorically, encase the characters’ hearts.

    Kay and Chris are drawn to each other, but they are separated — both by the trains taking them to their respective physical locations, and by the culture of their time and place. We sense that their world — the American South of the 1940s, which (as a radio broadcast reveals) soon will be immersed in World War II — will not permit them to be together. This is confirmed by the play’s abrupt, violent ending.

    Societal interference with Chris and Kay’s relationship is foreshadowed by the plays that Kennedy mentions and quotes. Bitter Sweet’s protagonist is a lady who is torn between her place in society (which includes a rich fiancé), and her love for a poor musician. In The Massacre at Paris, whose pithy dialogue Harrison quotes at length, there is an unlikely marriage between a Catholic and a Protestant.

    Forced separation, of course, is a theme that carries heightened resonance during the pandemic. Theater companies are unable to present material for live audiences, so they are continuing to seek ways to offer material online. Watson’s production of He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box is filmed as a stage presentation, but takes advantage of elements that video has to offer. A filmed production of a play, whose characters inhabit disparate cultural backgrounds, combines two distinct avenues of performance.

    The Work of Adrienne Kennedy: Inspiration and Influence will continue on November 21 with Sleep Deprivation Chamber (co-written with Kennedy’s son, Adam P. Kennedy); Ohio State Murders (December 5); and the world premiere of Etta and Ella on the Upper West Side (December 12).

    Round House Theatre’s production of He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box will be available to view online through February 28, 2021, as will the three other plays that are being presented as part of The Work of Adrienne Kennedy: Inspiration and Influence.

    After 5 of them quit, Trump was left with just one lawyer defending his big election lawsuit in Pennsylvania. He previously said the litigation ‘will not work.’ – About Your Online Magazine – Online Magazine

  • President Donald Trump’s legal team defending his big Pennsylvania election lawsuit had a mass exodus in the last week.
  • It left him with just one lawyer left: Right-wing radio host Marc Scaringi, who previously said litigation won’t affect President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
  • Rudy Giuliani and Brian Caffrey, a colleague of Scaringi, joined the case on Tuesday, just hours before a judge planned to hear the case.

  • President Donald Trump’s legal team in Pennsylvania has experienced a mass exodus in advance of a hearing Tuesday afternoon for one of his major election lawsuits, leaving him with just one lawyer: Right-wing radio host Marc Scaringi.

    On November 7, Scaringi said on his radio show that Trump’s lawsuits would not change the election results, The Washington Post first reported.

    “There really are no bombshells that are about to drop that would derail the Biden presidency via these lawsuits,” Scaringi said, adding: “Some of the lawsuits don’t seem to have much evidence in substantiating their claims.”

    “At the end of the day, in my view, the litigation will not work,” he continued. “It will not reverse this election.”

    —John Whitehouse (@existentialfish) November 17, 2020

    The case, a lawsuit against Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Kathy Boockvar and various Pennsylvania counties, seeks to stop the state from certifying its election results, alleging irregularities in the way votes have been counted.

    It’s experienced numerous setbacks since Trump’s campaign first filed it on November 9. Five of the six lawyers who first filed the case — Carolyn McGee, Douglas Hughes, John Scott, Linda Ann Kerns, and Ronald Hicks — have all abandoned the case over the past week, according to court filings reviewed by Insider.

    Three of them left on Sunday night, just before they submitted a heavily revised edition that dropped many of the original claims about the Trump campaign’s election observers.

    Brian Caffrey, one of Scaringi’s colleagues at his law firm, filed a motion to join the case on Tuesday morning. Joining him is Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, who is reportedly leading the campaign’s multi-state effort to fight the election results. Judge Matthew William Brann approved their requests to join the case later Tuesday.

    The lawsuit is one of more than 20 that the Trump campaign and other Republican groups have filed to challenge the election results. They are unlikely to succeed. President-elect Joe Biden leads Pennsylvania by about 75,000 votes — far beyond the 14,000 votes the Trump campaign sought to throw out in its lawsuit even before it was scaled back.

            WE move to screens for almost every choice. Where you should consume. The best place to holiday. The best place to eat on holiday. Where you might get treatment plan for the foodstuff poisoning you’ve got at that restaurant in which you consumed on a break. Where you should compose a review that is negative out the restaurant that gave you food poisoning and ruined your holiday. Therefore it’s no surprise our screens are getting to be the very first spot we move to while looking for love — because you want you to definitely look after you when you are getting food poisoning on your own vacation, appropriate?

            Probably one of the most amazing social modifications could be the increase of online dating sites as well as the decrease of different ways of fulfilling a partner that is romantic. In 1940, 24 % of heterosexual couples that are romantic the usa met through household, 21 % through buddies, 21 % through college, 13 % through next-door neighbors, 13 per cent through church, 12 percent at a club or restaurant and ten percent through co-workers. (Some groups overlapped.)

            By 2009, 1 / 2 of all couples that are straight met through buddies or at a club or restaurant, but 22 % came across online, and all sorts of other sources had shrunk. Remarkably, very nearly 70 % of homosexual and couples that are lesbian on line, in accordance with the Stanford sociologist Michael J. Rosenfeld, whom compiled this information.

            And Web dating is not pretty much casual hookups. Based on the University of Chicago psychologist John T. Cacioppo, a lot more than one-third of couples whom married in america from 2005 to 2012 came across on line.

            Numerous singles compare it up to a 2nd task, more responsibility than flirtation; the term “exhausting” came up constantly. Today, we appear to have options that are unlimited. And now we marry later on or, increasingly, generally not very. The American that is typical spends of her life solitary than hitched, this means she’s more likely to spend more and more time looking for love on line. Can there be a method to do so better, with less anxiety? The data from our 2 yrs of research, including interviews round the global globe, from Tokyo to Wichita, Kan., claims yes.

            EXCESSIVELY FILTERING The online world provides a supply that is seemingly endless of that are solitary and seeking up to now, also tools to filter in order to find precisely what you’re hunting for. You are able to specify height, training, location and fundamentally whatever else. Are you currently searching for some guy whose book that is favorite “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and whose favorite sport is lacrosse? You’re merely a couple of presses away out of this fantasy guy.

            But we have been terrible at once you understand everything we want. Researchers using the services of Match.com unearthed that the sort of partner individuals stated they desired usually didn’t match using what these people were actually thinking about. Individuals filter way too much; they’d be much better off vetting dates in individual.

            “It’s maybe perhaps maybe not the area to truly date.” The anthropologist Helen Fisher, who does work with Match.com, makes an identical argument: “It’s a misnomer which they call these exact things ‘dating services,’ ” she told us. “They ought to be called ‘introducing services.’ They assist you to head out and get and meet up with the individual your self.”

            Think about those search algorithms? Whenever scientists analyzed faculties of couples who’d met on OkCupid, they found that one-third had matching answers on three surprisingly crucial questions: “Do you love horror films?” “Have you ever traveled around a different country alone?” and “Wouldn’t it is enjoyable to chuck all of it and go go on a sailboat?” OkCupid thinks that responses to these concerns could have some predictive value, presumably since they touch on deep, individual conditions that matter to people significantly more than they understand.

            Exactly what is very effective for predicting good very very first times does not inform us much in regards to the success that is long-term of few. A recently available research led by the Northwestern psychologist Eli J. Finkel contends that no mathematical algorithm can anticipate whether two different people can make a good couple.

            PICTURE IDEAL People put a lot of time into composing the perfect profile, but does all of that effort pay off?

            OkCupid began a software called Crazy Blind Date. It offered the minimal information people had a need to have an in-person conference. No long profile, no back-and-forth talk, just a photo that is blurred. Afterwards, users were expected to speed their satisfaction because of the experience.

            The reactions had been compared to data through the users that are same activity on OkCupid. As Christian Rudder, an OkCupid co-founder, informs it, ladies who had been rated really appealing had been not likely to answer guys ranked less appealing. However when these were matched on Crazy Blind Date, that they had a time that is good. As Mr. Rudder places it, “people seem to be greatly preselecting on the web for something which, once they sit back in individual, does not appear crucial that you them.”

            ukrainian brides

            A few of everything we discovered effective photos on OkCupid ended up being predictable: ladies who flirt when it comes to digital digital camera or show cleavage can be successful. A number of everything we learned ended up being pretty weird: Men who look away and don’t smile do much better than people who do; ladies keeping pets don’t do well, but guys keeping pets do. Guys did better whenever shown participating in an activity that is interesting.

            We suggest the annotated following: while you’re underwater near some buried treasure if you are a woman, take a high-angle selfie, with cleavage. If you should be some guy, take an attempt of yourself spelunking in a dark cave while keeping your pup and seeking out of the digital camera, without smiling.

            A LOT OF OPTIONS As research by Barry Schwartz along with other psychologists indicates, having more options not merely causes it to be harder to select one thing, but in addition can make us less content with our alternatives, because we can’t help wonder whether we erred.

            Think about research because of the Columbia University psychologist Sheena S. Iyengar. She put up a table at a food that is upscale and offered shoppers types of jams. Sometimes, the scientists offered six forms of jam, but in other cases they offered 24. if they offered 24, individuals were prone to remain in while having a flavor, nevertheless they had been nearly 10 times less inclined to purchase jam than those who had just six sorts to use.

            See what’s occurring? There’s jam that is too much here. If you’re on a romantic date with a specific jam, you can’t also concentrate because when you go right to the restroom, three other jams have texted you. You get online, you notice more jam.

            One good way to avoid this issue is always to provide each jam a chance that is fair. Keep in mind: we can quickly recognize, the things that make us fall for someone are their deeper, more personal qualities, which come out only during sustained interactions although we are initially attracted to people by their physical appearance and traits. Psychologists like Robert B. Zajonc established the “mere publicity effect”: duplicated experience of a stimulus has a tendency to enhance one’s emotions toward it.

            This really isn’t merely a concept. In a research posted within the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the University of Texas psychologists Paul W. Eastwick and Lucy L. search declare that in dating contexts, a person’s appears, charisma and expert success may matter less for relationship success than many other facets that people each value differently, such as for example preferences and choices. In reality, they compose, few individuals initiate intimate relationships predicated on very very first impressions. Alternatively they be seduced by one another slowly, until an urgent or possibly long-awaited spark transforms a relationship or acquaintance into one thing sexual and severe.

            Consider it in terms of pop music music. Whenever a brand new track featuring Drake comes in the radio, you’re like, “what exactly is this song? Oh another Drake track. Big deal. Heard this before. Next please!” Then you retain hearing it and you also think, “Oh Drake, you’ve done it once again!”

            In ways, many of us are that way Drake track: The greater amount of time you may spend with us, the much more likely we have been to obtain stuck in your mind.

            Nobody really wants to invest an excessive amount of on a date that is first. In the end, the chances are it won’t be described as a love connection. It’s hard to get stoked up about a brand new individual while carrying out a rГ©sumГ© trade over alcohol and a burger. Therefore pile the deck in your favor and adhere to everything we called “The Monster Truck Rally Theory of Dating”: Don’t stay across from your own date at a dining table, sipping a glass or two and discussing for which you decided to go to college. Take action adventurous, playful or stimulating alternatively, and find out what type of rapport you’ve got.

            Workstation - Wikipedia

            Workstation – Wikipedia

            This article is about the type of computer. For workstations in music production, see music workstation. For furniture, see cubicle and computer desk.

            Six workstations: four HP Z620, one HP Z820, one HP Z420.

          • High-performance CPUs: while RISC in its early days (early 1980s) offered roughly an order-of-magnitude performance improvement over CISC processors of comparable cost, one particular family of CISC processors, Intel’s x86, always had the edge in market share and the economies of scale that this implied. By the mid-1990s, some x86 CPUs had achieved performance on a parity with RISC in some areas, such as integer performance (albeit at the cost of greater chip complexity), relegating the latter to even more high-end markets for the most part.
          • Hardware support for floating-point operations: optional on the original IBM PC; remained on a separate chip for Intel systems until the 80486DX processor. Even then, x86 floating-point performance continued to lag behind other processors due to limitations in its architecture. Today even low-price PCs now have performance in the gigaFLOPS range.
          • Large memory configurations: PCs (i.e. IBM-compatibles) were originally limited to a 640 KB memory capacity (not counting bank-switched “expanded memory”) until the 1982 introduction of the 80286 processor; early workstations provided access to several megabytes of memory. Even after PCs broke the 640 KB limit with the 80286, special programming techniques were required to address significant amounts of memory until the 80386, as opposed to other 32-bit processors such as SPARC which provided straightforward access to nearly their entire 4 GB memory address range. 64-bit workstations and servers supporting an address range far beyond 4 GB have been available since the early 1990s, a technology just beginning to appear in the PC desktop and server market in the mid-2000s.
          • Operating system: early workstations ran the Unix operating system (OS), a Unix-like variant, or an unrelated equivalent OS such as VMS. The PC CPUs of the time had limitations in memory capacity and memory access protection, making them unsuitable to run OSes of this sophistication, but this, too, began to change in the late 1980s as PCs with the 32-bit 80386 with integrated paged MMUs became widely affordable.
          • High-speed networking (10 Mbit/s or better): 10 Mbit/s network interfaces were commonly available for PCs by the early 1990s, although by that time workstations were pursuing even higher networking speeds, moving to 100 Mbit/s, 1 Gbit/s, and 10 Gbit/s. However, economies of scale and the demand for high-speed networking in even non-technical areas has dramatically decreased the time it takes for newer networking technologies to reach commodity price points.
          • Large displays (17- to 21-inch) with high resolutions and high refresh rate, which were rare among PCs in the late 1980s and early 1990s but became common among PCs by the late 1990s.
          • High-performance 3D graphics hardware for computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-generated imagery (CGI) animation: though this increasingly popular in the PC market around the mid-to-late 1990s mostly driven by computer gaming. For Nvidia, the integration of the transform and lighting hardware into the GPU itself set the GeForce 256 apart from older 3D accelerators that relied on the CPU to perform these calculations (also known as software transform and lighting). This reduction of 3D graphics solution complexity brought the cost of such hardware to a new low and made it accessible to cheap consumer graphics cards instead of being limited to the previous expensive, professionally oriented niche designed for computer-aided design (CAD). NV10’s T&L engine also allowed Nvidia to enter the CAD market for the first time, with the Quadro line that uses the same silicon chips as the GeForce cards, but has different driver support and certifications tailored to the unique requirements of CAD applications. However, users could soft-mod the GeForce such that it could perform many of the tasks intended for the much more expensive Quadro.
          • High-performance/high-capacity data storage: early workstations tended to use proprietary disk interfaces until the emergence of the SCSI standard in the mid-1980s. Although SCSI interfaces soon became available for PCs, they were comparatively expensive and tended to be limited by the speed of the PC’s ISA peripheral bus (although SCSI did become standard on the Apple Macintosh). SCSI is an advanced controller interface which is particularly good where the disk has to cope with multiple requests at once. This makes it suited for use in servers, but its benefits to desktop PCs which mostly run single-user operating systems are less clear. These days, with desktop systems acquiring more multi-user capabilities, the new disk interface of choice is Serial ATA, which has throughput comparable to SCSI but at a lower cost.
          • Extremely reliable components: together with multiple CPUs with greater cache and error-correcting memory, this may remain the distinguishing feature of a workstation today. Although most technologies implemented in modern workstations are also available at lower cost for the consumer market, finding good components and making sure they work compatibly with each other is a great challenge in workstation building. Because workstations are designed for high-end tasks such as weather forecasting, video rendering, and game design, it is taken for granted that these systems must be running under full-load, non-stop for several hours or even days without issue. Any off-the-shelf components can be used to build a workstation, but the reliability of such components under such rigorous conditions is uncertain. For this reason, almost no workstations are built by the customer themselves but rather purchased from a vendor such as Hewlett-Packard / HP Inc., Fujitsu, IBM / Lenovo, Sun Microsystems, SGI, Apple, or Dell.
          • Tight integration between the OS and the hardware: Workstation vendors both design the hardware and maintain the Unix operating system variant that runs on it. This allows for much more rigorous testing than is possible with an operating system such as Windows. Windows requires that third-party hardware vendors write compliant hardware drivers that are stable and reliable. Also, minor variation in hardware quality such as timing or build quality can affect the reliability of the overall machine. Workstation vendors are able to ensure both the quality of the hardware, and the stability of the operating system drivers by validating these things in-house, and this leads to a generally much more reliable and stable machine.
