Please include the following items when drafting your appreciation letter:
1) Appreciation for the donor’s support
2) Examples of how private donor support helps your work (Does it allow you to do things you might not otherwise be able to do? Does it encourage you because other people believe in you? etc.)
Don’t worry about including the amount of the funds. We will add a standard salutation and signature to your message.
Offer your donors insight into your background and future aspirations. Who are you? What line of work are you interested in? What excites you about your program? What is your proudest achievement?
Are you willing to participate in donor interactions?*
From time to time the Advancement Office hosts donors for coffee/tea or lunch in order to thank them for their generosity. In some cases, the donors specifically request that the beneficiary of their support attend. If that is the case, someone from the Advancement Office will contact you to make arrangements.
