Ah, summer…time to thank your donors

Summer in Winnipeg means many people go to the lake, go camping or otherwise take time to enjoy our beautiful city and province.

It’s also a great time to thank donors.

You and your board members┬ácan tell┬ádonors how much they’re appreciated in a number of ways:

  • Take a stack of note cards to the lake and write a few every day. Handwritten cards are personal and thoughtful.
  • Invite donors for a tour to see how they are making a difference in the world.
  • Make thank you calls.
  • Ask if you can visit a donor if she’s not able to come for a tour.
  • Send a video with clients or participants saying thank you for making a difference in their lives.

Above all, be sincere and authentic, and give them concrete examples of how they are changing lives. They will remember that you made them feel good.

Julie Mikuska.
