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:
