Hello, my name is Sharon Kitroser and this time of year my best friend is Coffee.
For most Fundraisers, this is the “clutch” time of the year. In other words, EVERYDAY is important. Remember, this is a short window make the most of it.
According to our Friends at NationalGivingMonth.org,
ONE THIRD (31%) OF ANNUAL GIVING OCCURS IN DECEMBER.
12% OF ALL GIVING HAPPENS IN THE LAST THREE DAYS OF THE YEAR.
Below please find reminders.
In poetry I say what to remember today!!!
As the year draws its curtain, Fundraisers, take heed,
In the waning weeks, plant the philanthropic seed.
Stories of impact, let them sparkle and play,
Illuminating the path as we close the year's day.
Making giving easy, a seamless delight,
Guide the hearts of donors to shine bright.
Reaching lapsed donors, like stars in the night,
Bring them back, revive their giving light.
Volunteers, the heart of our crew often have donations they would like to give you.,
In the whirlwind of tasks, a heartfelt thank you to all.
Drinking more coffee, stay fueled and strong,
As we post on social, the impact shared in song.
Emails with clear asks, concise and direct,
Crafting messages that donors won't deflect.
Saying thank you, let gratitude flow,
Unchecked and genuine, let appreciation grow.
Calling large donors, with personal affection,
Forge connections, a powerful reflection.
Share goals for next year, what their money can weave,
A legacy of change, in the stories they believe.
Reviewing our data, the lessons well earned,
Documenting details for success, in pages returned.
On the few days to New Year's, Fundraisers unite,
With visions of impact, and dreams taking flight.
In this season of giving, our mission stands clear,
A toast to the coming year, with purpose and cheer!
We wish all Fundraisers a Great December and a Successful New Year!!
