New Trends in Donor Stewardship: Saying Thank You all year long
As fundraisers we work so hard to secure the gift and then forget that our donors deserve much more than just a thank you letter. 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?”
We all know that relationship building is the key to our success as fundraisers and this session will provide examples of board thank you call scripts, creative pictures and notes about donors gifts in action, how to create a Stewardship/Impact report, and other fun ways to let our donors know we appreciate them long after their gift came in.About the Presenter:

the solicitation and cultivation of major gifts, planned giving, led the
