Short, powerful post for today.
You have one more week to make your online year-end fundraising great. And we’ve written a recent series of posts designed to help you.
I think these posts answer all the main questions that nonprofit fundraisers still working on their year-end emails, web and social would have:
- How to get matching funds from a Major Donor
- Lessons from 25 year-end fundraising seasons
- 5 tips for a successful online year-end campaign
- For small nonprofits; what to do after you’ve sent your letter
- Your fundraising should be more repetitive
There’s probably some repetition of core ideas in there. But you know that repetition is a fundraiser’s best friend, right?
It’s our hope that this is set of information is helpful to you. Or that it’s helpful in convincing your boss that the approach you want to take is tested and proven, not just something you made up or some yahoo on the internet said.
If you don’t have time to read all the posts, and just need what’s basically a template you can follow, check out our Year-End Digital Fundraising Toolkit.
As you make the most of your last few days, go boldly. YOU are the sacred connector between your donors and your beneficiaries or your cause. Because of you and your work, your donors get to experience the joy of giving. Because of you and your work, more people are helped and the world is a better place!
And stay tuned to the blog, we’re about to publish a sort of Benediction For Fundraisers for 2017. You’re going to love it!
