Sample Donation Thank You

"Write heartfelt thank you letters for donations."

Sample donation thank you letters.  I don't know about you but I donate to various causes.  Whether it be money that has been donated or someone's precious time, surely a thank you note is warranted?

Did you know it has been proven that sending a simple "thank you" would actually convince a hight percentage of donors to make a second donation. More good reason to start writing.  However, your letter isn't about persuading more giving, but to help make your donors feel part of the bigger picture and that their support is going to make a difference.

Tips on Writing Donation Thank You Letters

1. Always use the donor's name.

2. Use some examples as to how the donation is going to be used.

3. Hand write the thank you letter.

4. Make the letter personal.

5. Keep a sample donation thank you letter on your computer so that it can be personalized quickly.

6. Mail your letter within 48 hours of receipt of donation.

7. Large donations may warrant a personal visit or a telephone call.

Feel free to copy my thank you letters or use them as inspiration to write your own.
