The next six weeks are likely the busiest time of year for your individual gifts fundraising.
You don’t need to wait for donations to begin showing your gratitude to donors. Grab a list of people who gave in the past and call them (or send an email)...and simply thank them for their past support!
Then, once gifts do start coming in, make sure your acknowledgement process is at the top of its game. Set aside time each day to process gifts and generate thank-you letters in a timely manner. Also, consider making personal phone calls to thank donors of a certain level. Any extra personal touches will go far in building your relationship with donors!
Above all, be authentic. Show each donor how truly grateful you are for their support.
