Effective communication and attention play an important role in donor stewardship.
According to Nonprofit Hub, Donors are at risk of walking away if not shown any attention especially after they’ve shown your organization some love through their generosity. Here are a few ways you can communicate your appreciation to your donors and ensure a happy and healthy relationship.
- Tell stories of how their gift has created an impact.
- Always provide a thank-you note and receipt. For the personal touch, a handwritten note or a phone call can go a long way.
- Set up an email series that is triggered by a first-time gift and can better educate donors on your organization’s mission.
- Increase interactions with donors through volunteer opportunities, behind-the-scenes tours, and hosting exclusive events.
Remember, relationships are key to fundraising and with the right messages and tactics, your organization will find true love!
