There's nothing better for donor retention than donors that feel sincerely appreciated, and there's nothing more authentic than a hand-written thank you. While this might not be the most time-efficient method it is by far the most sincere. But, if you're crunched for time, sending an e-mail could also be an effective option. If you truly want to thank your donor like you mean it, consider Dennis Fischman's advice and:
- Customize your email to make it personal.
- Keep your email short and to the point.
- Use a conversational tone.
- Make a great first impression.
- Let donors know where the money is going.
- Don't ask for more money.
