Now is a great time to set aside some time to show appreciation to your donors who have supported your organization over the past few months. The great news is that saying “thanks” to your donors goes a long way...not only will your donors feel appreciated, but it can improve your donor retention.

This three-webinar bundle will show you a variety of ways to make your donors feel loved!

First, you'll learn how to write the perfect thank you letter. According to multiple studies, the thank you letter is the first--and possibly most important--step in donor retention. Your thank you letter should be personalized. It should be authentic. And it absolutely must be donor-centered. We'll show you how.

But thank you letters aren't the only way to thank your donors...next, you'll learn how thank you videos can help you stand out to your donors! Thank you videos are a simple and powerful way to communicate appreciation to your donors and demonstrate the impact of their gifts. You don't need to be a videographer or have special storytelling skills to create a simple and powerful thank you video.

Finally, in the third training, you'll about a variety of other ways you can make your donors feel appreciated...from mail, to phone calls, to newsletters and online techniques. You'll see examples of other small and medium-size nonprofits who have created effective thank you letters and videos with minimal resources and little experience.
