I encouraged Fundraising Kick subscribers to devote all of last week to showing donors some love. I even suggested different ways to express their appreciation for people that have made their organization’s existence possible.
How about you? Even if you’re not on the Kick list yet, why not show some donors your gratitude today. If you’re in a country that doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, just say you read about it on a blog.
You could say something like:
“I was reading a blog that mentioned showing gratitude to special people on Valentine’s Day. As I read that, I thought of you and all you’ve done for our organization. I’m just calling [or writing this note] to say thank you.”
Will you make the commitment to show 10 donors some love today?
