 As fundraisers, we work so hard to secure gifts and then forget that our donors deserve much more than just thank-you letters. In this interactive session, participants will see real examples of ways to say thanks all year long through cards, pictures, notes, and other cost-effective yet much appreciated ways. After all, have you ever had a donor say, “Will you stop thanking me?

Today’s Learning Objectives:

  • Donor Stewardship is MUCH MORE than just a Thank You
  • Share Creative Ways to stay in touch
  • The Importance of Stewardship/Impact Reports
  • Ways to Engage Others in Saying Thanks
  • Understand the Value of Saying Thanks All Year Long
