Your Best Post-Giving Day Fundraising Strategy

You’ve participated in a Giving Day on GiveGab and raised a little (or a lot of) money.  So, what do you do now to best leverage your fundraising results?

The following are some best practices we’ve seen leveraged by some of our most successful organizations to help translate the Giving Day energy you’ve generated with your board and supporters into raising funds and engaging with them year-round.

Personalized Thank You Messages

All of your Giving Day donors were automatically sent donation receipts with a “thank you” message attached, but have you sent personalized “thank you” messages, especially to the donors who have made larger gifts?

Letting your donors know how they’ve made an impact is a great way to encourage repeat gifts and create a lasting relationship.  Be sure to reach out to those select donors again to say “thank you” in a more meaningful way.
