You'll learn how to effectively Thank donors, how often to Thank them, and how to Thank them in a way that leads to more donations.
Report Back Your Donors' Impact
Every donor wants to make an impact. Some want to transform the life of a child in need. Others want to support a cause in their community. No matter their motivation, they want their gift to be effective.
You'll discover how to Report back about the impact of a donor's gift in a concrete and meaningful way.
