Newly Expanded! How to Cultivate An Attitude of Gratitude and Keep Your Donors
Why you should get this Special Guide
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned about sustaining donor relationships over the years and tucked it into one handy no-nonsense guide on the practice of gratitude. Everything from how to persuade your leadership of the value of putting resources into prompt, personal thanks to… how to create a meaningful thank you email… to how to thank your donors on social media. It’s all in here. The tried-and-true and the dare-to-try! If you read this guide, and use it, you’ll raise more money every year from here on out.
You’ll learn what donors really want from you and how to give it to them.
- Did you know you’re going to lose more than 77% of your first-time donors? This is what happens to average nonprofits.
- Did you know that increasing donor retention by 10% today can triple the lifetime value of these donors?
- Did you know that most charities do not actually need more new donors as much as they need to improve the average gift value of the donors they already have?
Rather than constantly recruiting new supporters, only to lose them soon afterward as is common with direct-mail and special event solicitations, begin keeping and upgrading the donors you have.
How? You need to read this special step-by-step guide! I share with you tons of tips, templates, checklists and samples to help you apply what you learn here RIGHT AWAY.
