Essential for successful fundraising is expressing gratitude and appreciation. When we respond with genuine, personal thanks, donors are more apt to keep giving. 

Isn't thanking easier than asking? Then why do so many nonprofits do an inadequate job of acknowledging gifts?

Join me on Friday, September 7, for Nonprofits TALK facilitated workshop/discussion and participate in creating a plan for thanking doors in meaningful and creative ways. We will explore how time, thought and purpose inspire gratitude with a personal touch.

This TALK is perfect for you, if:

  • You want to expand the ways you thank donors for gifts.
  • You want to engage your donors in more authentic ways.
  • You want to enhance your donor acknowledgment process.
  • You want to erase the guesswork of saying THANK YOU.
Contact Susan with questions. See — and hear — you at Nonprofits TALK!

NPT meets at The Lace Mill165 Cornell Street in Kingston; free parking on South Manor Avenue and Progress Street. Come to the West Gallery, 8:30-10 A.M. for bagels, coffee and conversation on September 7. Prompt start and finish.

The mission of Nonprofits TALK is to strengthen the nonprofit community in the Hudson Valley through monthly workshop/trainings that address common organizational challenges, present workable solutions and facilitate meaningful communication and collaboration among peers.

Golden Nuggets on The Cycle of Fundraising: Redefining Fundraising

  2. You Educate Prospects
  3. You Cultivate Prospects
  4. You Involve Prospects
