This study explored a persuasive message strategy for aid promotion by considering the structure of donors’ attitudes toward international aid. Traditional studies on aid campaigns have usually overlooked the dynamics of inter-attitudinal structure and have focused on message framings rather than quality message. The Galileo spatial-linkage model represents the attitudinal structure within a spatial coordinate system. A public opinion survey with 218 college students was conducted. The results indicated that potential donors are unconcerned about international aid; however, the attitude can be changed into a well-disposed attitude. In this study, a persuasive message strategy was suggested. A compound message focusing on relatively close issues to donors would facilitate positive attitude change to participate in international aid projects.
