Donor Stewardship Matters

Make sure your supporters know how important they are to you!

After a busy season of asking donors to give, don’t forget the importance of a well-crafted stewardship piece. Whether you send a postcard or a multi-faceted card, don’t forget to tell your donors “thank you!” Below are just a few examples of how you can steward your donors this season.


Say “Thanks” with a Postcard

A postcard is an economical choice to send a brief thank you message with an attention grabbing image.


Send an Invite to a Fun Event

Whether it’s a free tour of your campus or a golf tournament, events are a great way to connect with donors and an opportunity to thank them in person.


Share a Message of Hope

By sending a “soft ask” you have the opportunity to tell donors how their past gifts have made a difference. You also can share how their continued gifts can keep helping those who need it most.


Celebrate Donors on Birthdays

Let your supporters know that birthdays are a reason to celebrate – and that you can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to thank them for their generosity.
