Fundraising Tip: Don't just ask once!
ever missed an email? Have you ever promised to do something and then
completely forgotten? If so, you are just like the vast majority of us.
That's why today's fundraising tip is so important...
Don't just ask for donations once!
If you've sent
out your fundraising letters and emails - great job! But, the money
hasn't come pouring in yet - sad, but sometimes true. Well, chances are
that your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and everyone on your
list wants to - and is happy to - support you but needs a reminder. Most
likely, they simply forgot to visit your webpage or write the check.
sending friendly reminders to your contacts is so important! You can
share updates and successes. You can redirect them to your website. You
can help them to remember to support you. With just a few days until the New York City VisionWalk, now is a great time to send a reminder email. Click here for a terrific sample that you can personalize and use.
