Over the summer I was raising money for activities that could only take place if they were funded by donors! We had fantastic results and now it’s time for reporting back.
Rather than just sending a generic thank you letter with all the facts and figures, I have asked the Chair of our Trustee Board to do hand written thank you cards that include photos from the activities made possible by our donors! This is a fantastic way to thank your donors and doesn’t take much more effort than a regular thank you letter. It’s also one of my favourite ways to get my Board involved in fundraising that doesn’t include an ask! (Donors also LOVE these!)
For more ways of getting Trustees involved, check out my previous article; Myth Busting! Trustees and what it means to be ‘involved in fundraising’.
Do you like to personalise your thank you letters? Do you report back in this way or do you have a completely different approach that works for you? Let me know in the comments!
