You better recognize...your donors!

August 25,2015

Everyone loves to receive a pat on the back for their efforts. Whether it is note cards, a plaque, or that seat in the auditorium a well-planned recognition program can help strengthen relationships and create new champions for our organizations. It's a fine line for non-profits, however, and donor recognition programs vary from one to the next.  It's important is that you see recognition through the eyes of the donor and give them something that not only appropriately thanks them for their support but that they will be proud to show others when they discuss their involvement with your cause.

New ideas are popping up all the time, but how do you know what's best for your donors? Join us for our September meeting as we discuss best practices and new ideas to recognize your donors!


See you in September,
