Home Page > Donation Thank You Letter
Have you received a donation? It's time to send a donation thank you letter ... without delay.
It's one of those very black and white areas - a non-negotiable task that simply has to be completed to show every one of supporters just how grateful you are for their individual donations.
Donors expect a thank you letter, so you could annoy your donor if you don't show them this courtesy.
Every donor deserves a thank you!
Did you know that when you take the time to handwrite a letter of thanks to a donor, what you're really doing is building a valuable relationship with that individual?
And, that individual is much more likely to make more donations to your cause in the future if they receive a great thank you letter from you! Fact.
So you're creating a real 'win-win' situation, just by putting pen to paper and showing your gratitude.
After all, everyone wants to know that their money has been put to good use!
You should mention the amount that your donor has contributed in your thank you letter. They may be able to use your letter when completing their income tax return ... to apply for tax relief on the amount of the donation!
When people give to good causes, it's usually because they want to feel that their contribution will make a difference, however small, to a cause they believe in.
