Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


Thank you. Thank you for your work this year to raise more money and to make the world a better place. You’ve helped your organization, and you’ve helped your donors live out their values and beliefs through their donations.

As the year ends, Ask with boldness and clarity. Then take a breather. Then get ready to Thank and Report your way to satisfied donors in 2016. They’re going to LOVE hearing what their gifts did!

It’s a gift to be a fundraiser. Good luck these next few days, and we’ll see you in 2016!
