Thank Your Donors This Holiday Season

There’s ample opportunity to thank your donors this season.

 

There comes a time in each nonprofit’s journey where they must truly appreciate their donors, both big and small. Without their help and support, it may well have been impossible to carry out your mission. The holidays are an important time of year for nonprofits when charitable giving reaches an all-time high. Thanking your donors doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive – Here are a few easy ideas to get started.

 

  • Host an event

Invite the top ten percent of your donors to attend an appreciation event. Use this opportunity to give your donors a behind the scenes look at your organization by giving them a tour and answering any questions about the nonprofit. This event will help the donors to feel appreciated and essential in furthering the cause.

 

  • Send out holiday letters

Craft a holiday letter that highlights the organization’s success stories. Include details on the number of individuals helped and how the donations are spent. Providing donors with confirmation their money was used effectively increases their trust in your organization.

 

Fill the yearly newsletter with accomplishments, pictures of volunteers at work, and stories of those you helped. This reading material makes for a great end-of-year celebration for donors to see how they contributed to the cause. Highlight any upcoming events and changes, too.

 

Thanking your donors during the busy holiday season is something that they will remember in the New Year! To find the right coverage for your needs, contact the experts at Colorado Nonprofit Insurance Agency, part of HUB International in Denver, Colorado at 303-894-0298.
