Shake up the way you give thanks this fall.

Months go into planning your fundraising events and strategies. But how much of that time is dedicated post-event follow up? Staff and volunteer appreciation? Thanking donors? 

Additionally, what are you learning from these thank you notes? There’s a lot to learn in event follow-ups, so it’s important to build into your fundraising strategy plan. 

While you create your list of everyone to thank this November, we’re partnering with Winspire to give you: 

  • Different ways to show appreciation across your entire ecosystem  
  • Tools and resources that produce takeaway data when you thank donors 
  • Post-event communication expectations of donors
